CBD OIL: Placebo or Medicine?

I recently joined a lively thread on Facebook regarding the efficacy of CBD oil. CBD was approved in 2013 for medical use in a bill brought before the Texas Legislature by State Rep. John Zerwas, R-Richmond.  The House passed SB 339 on a 96-34 vote.  Still, the bill had many detractors.  And not just prohibitionists who feared this was the beginning to the end of prohibition, and the sale of non-psycho-active CBD in oral capsules would somehow cause more teenage cannabis use were against the bill (although I’m still a little fuzzy on the correlation between oral CBD and teenage pot smoking, let alone any causation).  Even pro-CBD and pro-medicalization groups feel that the bill is “too little, too late.”
