A compound found in cannabis is now being sold at a juice shop in Wichita.
The Kansas legislature said last week CBD Oil is okay as long as it doesn’t have the THC that gets people high.
Driving around Wichita, and a few other cities in Kansas, you may have noticed stores popping up that sell CBD Oil.
Songbird Juice Company in Wichita says their CBD lemonade is so popular they run out every other day.
Diana Castre and Cody Schmidt are trying lemonade with CBD for the first time.
“That’s good, it’s really good,” said Castre.
“I’m in support of it, if it helps people why not allow it,” said Schmidt.
Marty Spence, owner of Songbird Juice Company, says their CBD lemonades are flying off the shelves.
She’s glad lawmakers are approving cannabinol, or CBD.
“I’m ecstatic, I think that it is long time coming, certainly I thought it would take longer, I think a lot of us did,” said Spence.
Some people claim health benefits from CBD, but the FDA warns those aren’t verified, which is what the labels on the lemonade say.
“We never can claim any kind of medicinal benefit, but some of the reports we receive from customers, everything from I sleep better at night, I have a little less anxiety.”
So a big question: can you drink them and pass a drug test?
A drug-testing lab, Quest Diagnostics, said as long as there is no THC it won’t show up as marijuana.
“We send that back to a lab, make sure it comes back 0 percent, we have those lab tests always available, so it’s completely safe, you’re not going to fail a drug test,” said Spence.
It’s a growing trend that people and even pets are trying out.
“My mom has actually gotten into getting CBD for her dogs, she’s got a dog that has bad anxiety so she gives it CBD treats and stuff and seems to be working,” said Chris Miller of Maize.
Though the Kansas legislature passed the changes that allow CBD, the governor has yet to sign it.
He has until May 14th to sign or veto.
If he doesn’t sign, it still passes.
