As more states legalize marijuana, there’s growing interest in a cannabis extract — cannabidiol, also known as CBD.

It’s marketed as a compound that can help relieve anxiety — and, perhaps, help ease aches and pains, too.

Part of the appeal, at least for people who don’t want to get high, is that CBD doesn’t have the same mind-altering effects as marijuana, since it does not contain THC, the psychoactive component of the plant.
