"...still being peddled..."
It's wording like this that doesn't help "our" cause and is entirely within the control of the publisher. Drugs are peddled, medicines are provided, the fine art of propaganda.
If personal testimony is valid: the older person suffering from sciatic pain & back injury, who was terrified of "getting high" after a decades-old "pot-brownie: experience, gave CBD a real try. She's now a converted believer, using CBD daily, and reports a daily pain level reduction "from an 8 or 9 down to a 2 or 3".
