FDA Issues Warning About CBD Products

| November 27, 2019

When CBD first came on the market, it was immediately marketed as a cure-all for all manners of ailments, from depression to premenstrual cramps to opioid addiction. Yet as the market has expanded, so too has the number of distributors peddling phony or even dangerous products, prompting the FDA to issue an emergency warning on Tuesday urging consumers to use caution when buying CBD products.

In the statement, FDA principal deputy commissioner Dr. Amy Abernethy issued a warning to 15 companies illegally selling CBD products, and to the public at large. Generally speaking, it is not illegal to sell products that are not approved by the FDA, but it is not legal to claim they have therapeutic benefits if they are not approved by the FDA for that purpose.
