CBD-infused Cocktails, Ice Cream, and Desserts are on the Rise

As the Cannabis industries are booming in states where the psychoactive drug is legal to sell, in non-legal states CBD is on the rise.

Legal CBD, known scientifically as cannabidiol, is also derived from the hemp plant but is unlike marijuana because CBD contains just a hint of THC, meaning it doesn't give you a "high."
