BOISE — A recently introduced bill would allow residents to use oil extracted from cannabis plants as long as the product is prescribed by a licensed practitioner.

Under the proposed legislation, Idahoans seeking to use the oil for medical purposes for themselves or their minor children would have to apply to the Idaho Board of Pharmacy for a cannabidiol registration card.

Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD oil, comes from cannabis but contains little or no THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis.

The DEA defines hemp and marijuana as different parts of the same cannabis plant.

Marijuana is the flower, leaves, and resin of the plant and is generally used for medicinal or recreational purposes as a drug.
