Cannabidiol is a chemical found in hemp and marijuana plants. It's the second most prevalent active ingredient in marijuana. It does not contain properties that cause a "high."

"Our limited selection of hemp-derived CBD topical products is from suppliers that have been reviewed for quality and safety," King Soopers officials told CBS4.

Products containing CBD (Cannabidiol) are seen in a shop in Paris on June 14, 2018. - The government recently reminded industries that "only seeds and fibers can be used. The use of flowers is forbidden. Only certain varieties of cannabis or hemp, devoid of narcotic properties, can be used for industrial and commercial purposes under cumulative conditions. No therapeutic virtue can be claimed by manufacturers, sellers of products containing CBD".
