So in an attempt to stymie this trend, the agency is now pushing to “regulate” CBD oil, which of course would benefit Big Pharma at the expense of health freedom. During a recent congressional hearing, FDA Commissioner Ned Sharpless expressed his opposition to the legal use of CBD, insisting that there are “real risks” associated with its use. He added that “critical questions remain” about not … [Read more...] about FDA moves to regulate CBD oil to protect Big Pharma’s profits

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration took a good look at the safety and effectiveness of CBD products on Friday, as it weighs how to best regulate the hemp-derived compound going forward. During a public hearing that stretched for hours, the agency heard testimony from folks on all sides of the issue. In opening the hearing, FDA Acting Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless said, "critical questions remain about the safety" of the products, CNN reported. "While we have seen an explosion of interest in products containing CBD, there is still much that we don't know," Sharpless added.

It legalized hemp production nationwide, and with it the plant’s most profitable byproduct, the non-intoxicating drug cannibidiol, or CBD. The chemical also is found in marijuana, which is still banned under federal law, though plentiful in 33 states that have legalized it for either medical or … [Read more...] about States seeking clarity in booming hemp oil market
