About Us

Understanding CBD is a project of Steven Walman, founder of Walman's Apothecary, a company dedicated to bringing high-quality wellness products to consumers.

I am on a mission.

My passion is educating people about CBD and supporting the independent farmers, processors, manufacturers and distributors of hemp and cannabis products in the United States.

At Understanding CBD, we are passionate about dispelling the myths surrounding this potent plant medicine. We are committed to following the latest science about the proven and potential benefits of CBD, and our goal is to bring you the best information available so that you too can continue to learn—and figure out how CBD can improve your life.

Wellness is personal.

But that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. We are here to help. Through this site and Walman’s Apothecary, our premium cannabis extract company, we’ve met a lot of people just like you. In fact, connecting with people is a big part of why we do what we do: We love to help others figure out what CBD can do for them.

We are part of something bigger.

It’s exciting to be part of a still-evolving industry, and we’re grateful to be doing our part to promote the growth of CBD. We enjoy working with other folks in the business, particularly here in Maryland. The community we are building inspires and sustains us.
