Best Options for Getting on the CBD Bandwagon

Editors' Pick

There’s no need to cross the District line to purchase cannabidiol (CBD) products—they’re perfectly legal in Montgomery County. Though CBD is derived from the cannabis plant, it contains little to no THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. Research is scant, and the FDA says CBD could be harmful, but it is thought to help relieve pain and anxiety, and it’s popping up in all sorts of things. You can shop for locally made balms and bath products with CBD at Joyful Bath Co. in North Bethesda. Or spring for a facial at Green Revolution Skin Studio in Bethesda and add the “CBD boost.” The treatment incorporates a CBD cleansing oil from the Silver Spring-based skin care line Skincando. If you’d rather try the cleansing oil at home, you can pick it up at Brookville Pharmacy in Chevy Chase or at Village Green Apothecary in Bethesda. Village Green also sells gummies, tinctures and capsules from national brands. You can even find CBD products for pets—Pet Parents in Bethesda sells pet tinctures and beef-flavored dog chews made with cannabidiol.
