FDA warns cannabis companies selling CBD supplements

It seems like this option will soon shut down (not that it matters really - its way too expensive at therapeutic levels it seems (researchs shows it costs about $60/day to buy the current oils at the level required to be helpful). Just wait until the CBD drugs start to become available (if they pass clinical trials and show that they are effective).

FDA warns cannabis companies selling CBD supplements

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued another round of legal warnings to companies marketing products that contain cannabidiol (CBD), a compound found in marijuana.

The FDA issued similar warning letters to six companies last year.

The warning letters criticize the products for not containing the amount of CBD they claim to. They also take aim at health claims the companies have made about those products.

As Alan Brochstein explains in New Cannabis Ventures, companies are prohibited from making health claims unless the product was marketed before GW Pharma published clinical trials.
