The FDA prohibits CBD

Hemp oil extracts containing CBD are such a threat to the pharmaceutical industry that the FDA is now invoking crazy justifications to outlaw them. CBDs are non-psychoactive compounds found naturally in hemp plants. They work well as a powerful natural medicine. In fact, people are realizing that CBD works better than drugs for treating epilepsy, seizures, neurological disorders and other serious health conditions. Then the FDA prohibits CBD launched a massive regulatory assault against CBD by invoking the craziest logic ever heard.

Here’s how it went:

  • CBDs work so well that pharmaceutical companies are now looking to be approved by the FDA as medications.
  • Because CBDs are investigated by pharmaceutical companies, the FDA has granted CBD status as “under investigation as a new drug.” The FDA deems a substance to be eligible for investigation as a new drug “if it is the subject of a new investigational investigation.”
  • Because CBDs work well and have been cleared for drug investigations, the FDA is attempting to regulate them out of existence as dietary supplements. According to the FDA website: “The FDA has concluded that cannabidiol products are excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement. Under that provision, if a substance (such as cannabidiol) has been authorized for investigation as new drug has been made public. Products containing that substance are outside the definition of a dietary supplement.”
  • Now the FDA has started sending warning letters to CBD manufacturers. In these claiming that they are in violation of FDA regulations because they are selling “adulterated products”. Adulterated with what, exactly? CBD, of course. The debate over the legal status of CBD hemp continues after the FDA sent eight warning letters to manufacturers of CBD dietary supplements and food products earlier this month,” Nutritional Outlook reports.

The FDA just criminalized one of the world’s most miracle drugs by handing it over to Big Pharma

In other words, the FDA just handed Big Pharma an absolute monopoly on CBD (hemp oil extract) by ridiculously claiming that such natural products are “adulterated” with molecules (CBD) that the FDA could make into a drug. “Drugs,” according to the FDA, are substances that have been shown to treat, prevent, or cure a disease.

So the FDA’s own logic admits that CBDs must be able to treat, prevent, or cure disease, otherwise they would be useless as a “drug.” But when a dietary supplement company makes the same claim, they get hit with aggressive warning letters. by the FDA. In these they threaten to shut them down, confiscate their products and seek criminal prosecution against the company’s executives. This is how the FDA can immediately criminalize any vitamin or plant extract.
