A Landrum lawmaker has pre-filed a bill to allow physicians to prescribe CBD oil, also known as cannabis oil or cannabidiol, for some medical conditions.

Republican state Rep. Doug Brannon filed the bill on Dec. 10. The bill also establishes a registry and dispensing organizations to deliver CBD for medical use.

"I don't know of anyone getting high on Low-THC (CBD) oil," Brannon said. "This oil has pain control ability.

Low-THC cannabidiol is an extract from a cannabis plant which contains no psychoactive substance, according to Brannon.

The bill allows a physician to prescribe low-THC cannabidiol to a patient with a qualifying medical condition if no other alternative for treatment exists.
