High Label Inaccuracy for Cannabidiol Products Bought Online

High Label Inaccuracy for Cannabidiol Products Bought Online”

Studies have found, for example, that cannabidiol may help reduce seizures in children with certain types of epilepsy, and that it may help treat anxiety disorders.

CBD products sold in liquid form-for use with vaping devices-were mislabeled about 88% of the time, while CBT oils were mislabeled about 55% of the time. The team concluded there was a need for manufacturing and testing standards if CBD products are going to be used for medicinal purposes. This means some cannabidiol products may be labeled inaccurately.

A study, published this week in JAMA, found that almost 70% of all products sold online made from cannabidiol - an extract of the marijuana plant also known as CBD - contained either higher or lower concentrations of the drug than indicated on the label.

The companies that received the FDA letter sell health supplements containing cannabidiol (CBD), a component of the marijuana plant that does not cause the infamous mind-altering effect. There is interest in CBD as a medicine because there is some evidence that it has medical benefits, but it does not make people feel "high" and there is no indication that CBD, by itself, is abused.

In a recent statement, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb reinforced the agency's stance on the unsubstantiated health claims made by CBD product manufacturers. Business experts estimate that the market for CBD products will grow to more than $2 billion in consumer sales within the next three years. The DEA, and the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, consider CBD a Schedule 1 substance without a valid medical use.

Two authors disclosed financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

ASA was founded in 2002, as a vehicle for patients to advocate for the acceptance of cannabis as medicine.

CBD is legal in the European Union (except Slovakia), Canada and some states in the U.S., where there are products based on the cannabinoid such as creams, oils, pills and even mineral water.

The Patient Focused Certification (PFC) program is a non-profit, peer reviewed, third party certification program for the medical cannabis industry and the nation's only certification program for the AHPA and AHP Standards. Today, only those with a full medical cannabis license may purchase such products in Israel.
