As states pass cannabis extract laws, entrepreneurs are stepping up to provide “CBD Oils”. The FDA has sent out warnings to several companies about the claims being made of their product’s healing properties. According to the FDA most of the ‘legal in all 50 state” oils contain little or no CBD (cannabidiol) and the products lack ingredient labeling. Note that there are many illegitimate product manufactures in America, the set back… it is illegal to ship across state lines. Georgia’s new law (HB-1) allows possession of certain cannabis extracts, for certain patients, if they can find a source in other states. Patients take the legal risks of shipping or bringing the extracts back to Georgia.
“WASHINGTON, DC — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has sent letters to several makers of cannabidiol (CBD) oils derived from hemp, telling them to stop making medical claims about their products’ ability to treat disease.
Many sellers of hemp-based cannabidiol products, who advertise their products as “legal in all 50 states” because they are derived from industrial hemp, have been making claims that their products are rich in cannabidiol (CBD) and can be used for “the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of diseases,” according to the FDA.
The FDA, which considers CBD an “unapproved new drug,” says these companies are mis-branding the products and issuing false claims to consumers. Often these products do not even list their ingredients on the product label, the FDA added.”
