Rita Wooton is the mother of six-year old Eli, who has experienced the incredible healing ability of Hemp as Medicine, in the form of cannabidiol (CBD) oil.
CBD oil is extracted from industrial hemp plants. When you see industrial hemp growing in a field, it looks and smells just like marijuana, but it is remarkably different. For one thing, hemp will not get you high, because it contains less than .3 percent THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana.
