The Truth About CBD: What Consumers Need to Know

As an expert in the field of CBD and controlled substances, I have seen a lot of confusion and misinformation surrounding these products. Many companies that sell hemp and CBD products also offer products that contain THC, which can cause psychoactive effects and adverse reactions. It's important for consumers to understand the difference between these products and to be aware of potential risks. First and foremost, it's important to note that THC products should not be confused with hemp or CBD products. While hemp and CBD are derived from the same plant as THC (cannabis), they do not have the same psychoactive effects.

In fact, CBD is known for its therapeutic properties and is often used to treat a variety of conditions. However, not all CBD products are regulated by the FDA. This means that consumers need to be cautious when purchasing these products, as they may contain other ingredients such as THC, pesticides, heavy metals, bacteria, or fungi. The FDA has expressed concern about the proliferation of CBD products marketed for therapeutic or medical uses without proper approval. In order to protect consumers from potential harm, the FDA has issued an alert warning about the insufficient labeling of products containing THC and CBD. This means that some products may not accurately disclose their ingredients or potential side effects.

As a result, it's important for consumers to do their research and only purchase CBD products from reputable companies. One group of individuals who should be particularly cautious about using CBD is breastfeeding mothers. While there is limited research on the effects of CBD on breastfeeding infants, some studies have shown negative effects associated with consumption. As a precaution, it is recommended that breastfeeding mothers avoid using CBD products. It's also worth noting that the FDA has only approved one CBD product for medical use - Epidiolex. This medication contains a purified form of CBD and is used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome in patients over the age of 1.However, the FDA has not approved any CBD products for other medical uses, and has concluded that THC and CBD should not be added to food or animal feed for interstate commerce. As an expert, I can confidently say that there is still much to be learned about the effects of CBD and controlled substances.

While CBD has shown promise in treating certain conditions, it's important for consumers to be cautious and informed when using these products. By understanding the difference between THC and CBD, being aware of potential risks, and only purchasing from reputable sources, consumers can make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
