LOUISIANA (AP) – (1/29/20) Louisiana’s second medical marijuana grower hasn’t started selling therapeutic cannabis yet, but the company is offering an over-the-counter CBD product at the state’s marijuana dispensaries. 

Ilera Holistic Healthcare is the company partnered with Southern University to grow medical marijuana.

The hemp-derived CBD comes in a liquid tincture form, a bottle containing a dropper to use. Southern and Ilera officials are hosting a Thursday event to tout the new products at H&W Drug Store, the medical marijuana pharmacy in the New Orleans area.
