TryTheCBD.com Blog: 4 Things You Need to Know About Dosing CBD Hemp Oil
Many studies tout the benefits of CBD hemp oil against a range of ailments, including cancer, psychoses, and inflammation. But just how much should you take to treat these ailments?
Unfortunately, the FDA has only approved CBD hemp oil as a food product. That means the FDA prohibits manufacturers and retailers from offering CBD hemp oil as a prescription for any ailment, or in any way advertise it as a way to prevent or mitigate disease. Moreover, manufacturers and retailers of CBD hemp oil risk violating federal law in providing any such helpful advice. For example, in 2015, the FDA has cracked down on several companies’ websites that used language suggesting CBD hemp oil can treat or prevent disease. The following year, in December 2016, the government took further steps to seemingly try to eliminate the CBD hemp oil from the market when the DEA categorized it as a Schedule I drug.
The federal government’s hostility towards all-things-cannabis may seem hypocritical given certain federal laws. For instance, Congress passed a farm bill that allows states and research institutions to implement agricultural pilot programs for industrial hemp. Under this bill, Congress also blocked the DEA, USDA, and law enforcement agencies from interfering with the pilot programs’ operations. Moreover, the courts have blocked the DOJ’s attempts to prosecute against state-sanctioned marijuana programs. Despite being a Schedule I drug, Congress has barred the DOJ from spending money on interfering with states’ authorization of medical marijuana for possession, sale, use, or cultivation.
Politics and legalities aside, that still leaves online retailers unable to advertise CBD hemp oil as anything but a food supplement. Customers looking for a definitive answer about dosage will thus have a difficult time finding one on the Internet.
While it’s unclear whether this will ever not be the case, we’re at least able to provide you with the following four pointers for deciding how much CBD hemp oil is safe to ingest.
