Forbes recently reported about the World Health Organization (WHO) and their findings with CBD. Not only did they find no adverse health outcomes, but they also found several medical applications. This goes directly against the federal policy on CBD.
The article states that, “CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical found in cannabis, does not induce physical dependence and is “not associated with abuse potential.” The WHO also wrote that, unlike THC, people aren’t getting high off of CBD, either.” They wrote “To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” Ironically, evidence suggests that CBD actually can mitigate the effects of THC.
The authors of this report by WHO officially confirmed positive effects from CBD. They wrote that CBD has “been demonstrated as an effective treatment for epilepsy” no only in adults, but children and animals as well. They also claimed that there is “preliminary evidence” of CBD being useful in treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, psychosis, cancer, and more.
They even noted that “Several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product”. The United States isn’t one of those countries.
However, CBD isn’t 100% free and clear. “Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.” So, CBD may interact with other medications, but by itself, people can’t blame CBD.
The article from Forbes also highlighted that the FDA has continuously declined to update its position on cannabis products, and that because of this report from WHO, may be getting closer to listening and learning more about CBD. Afterall, Dr. David Allen, a retired cardiac surgeon said in this video, “The endocannabinoid system is the single most important, medical, scientific discovery ever, and will save more lives than the study and application of sterile surgical technique. I’m a heart surgeon saying that.”
