FDA issue warnings to CBD products

Updated: Dec 2, 2019

The FDA issued a warning last Tuesday to 15 companies about the illegal selling of CBD products and claiming they have therapeutic benefits, without being approved by the FDA.

In the statement, FDA principal deputy commissioner Dr. Amy Abernethy stated

"We are quickly working to further clarify our regulatory approach for products containing cannabis and cannabis-dervied compounds like CBD," she also tweeted. "Often, people wrongly think that the myriad of CBD products on the market, have been evaluated by the FDA and determined to be safe, or that trying CBD 'can’t hurt.' Aside from one prescription drug approved to treat two rare forms of epilepsy, CBD products have not been approved by the FDA. There is significant interest in CBD and we must work together to fill in the knowledge gaps about the science, safety, and quality of many of these products."

So what are the FDA’s concerns?

  1. The unknown ways it interacts with other drugs

  2. Cause diarrhea or decrease appetite

  3. Cause liver injury

  4. Changes in mood, most commonly experienced as irritability & agitation

  5. Promote drowsiness & sedation

FDA focus wasn’t so much on CBD’s beneficial potential as on its possible risk. Which is their job. FDA doesn’t exist to promote food & drugs. It exist to protect the public from harmful food & drugs. FDA warning wasn’t the agency’s final word on CBD. Many people are consuming CBD but the FDA doesn’t have sufficient studies to prove either safety or risk.

Although many people swear by the therapeutic benefits of CBD, it’s always important to check lab reports about these companies because many CBD products had been found to contain pesticides and heavy metals. We know that CBD wellness products are one of the hottest trends, but not all are created equal. It’s natural that most people are cautious when considering what products to insert into their daily regimen, but beyond the initial intrigue, the most important aspect of any CBD journey is knowledge.
