CBD PRODUCTS - What you need to know
We are pleased to announce that we are carrying CBD products at our Lewis locations in Sioux Falls, Huron, Madison, Brandon, and Brookings.
Recent changes in South Dakota law have allowed Lewis Drug to begin carrying several cannabidiol (CBD) products at various Lewis Drug locations. CBD is derived from Cannabis sativa (hemp), and is considered to be non-psychoactive (not mind altering). CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system found in the body.
This system is involved in most brain and body functions including stress, pain, anxiety, and mobility. Research continues to be done to investigate how well CBD works for these ailments. However, despite the lack of scientific evidence, many patients find benefits from it when used for these and other purposes such as insomnia.
As with any prescription or over-the-counter products, it is important to make sure your medical providers and your pharmacist know what products you are currently taking. This includes CBD, as there are medications that have the potential to interact with these products. It is also important to ensure you are taking a reputable product that is properly labeled. Lewis Drug has thoroughly researched the products that we carry and are confident that the products are accurately labeled.
