Williamsburg Drug Company seminar touts CBD oil benefits

The Williamsburg Drug Company hopes to potentially help area consumers treat ailments with a surprising source: cannabidiol, or CBD oil.

The pharmacy has held three seminars featuring Dr. Alex Capano, a Philadelphia-based nurse practitioner and advocate of the treatment option.

Prior to her most recent lecture Tuesday evening, she made one detail about the oft-misunderstood supplement exceptionally clear: “It’s not medical marijuana. It won’t get you high.”

While CBD oil is derived from marijuana, it lacks the levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, that result in the high typically associated with the plant.
