An herbal remedy made from the marijuana plant is now being sold legally in South Carolina.

Gov. Nikki Haley signed the bill legalizing cannabidiol or CBD oil last June.

Palmetto Harmony, a South Carolina-made CBD product, is now for sale without a prescription at three locations in the state, including Natural Health Pharmacy in Socastee.

Advocates say the oil shows amazing results for treating things like chronic pain, glaucoma and epileptic seizures.

“We’ve had a little girl that had 200 seizures a day. She’s down to two, which are like twitches now,” said Erika Erhenford, co-owner of Natural Health Pharmacy.

The oil contains small amounts of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, but it won’t cause anyone to get high.
