Edith Cook, a writer for the Casper Star Tribune in Wyoming, went on a personal mission to visit the Colorado company, CBDRx, a company with a focus on Hemp as Medicine. CBDRx is a manufacturer of CBD capsules made from coconut oil and cannabidiol extracted from hemp plants.
CBD oil is most often used to treat severe epilepsy in toddlers and children. It has been shown to significantly reduce the amount of seizures.
