WHO report: CBD is safe so use it already

Last month the  World Health Organization put out a report on CBD  that found there was essentially no risk and huge benefits to naturally occurring CBD. This was hilighted in Forbes magazine, and is worth a read.

So the entire world recognizes that

  • CBD has essentially no abuse potential , so no public health problem
  • CBD is useful in treating epilepsy
  • CBD is safe to give, with very few side effects
  • CBD has potential for helping people with a huge range of problems

So our US DEA should downschedule CBD from Schedule I (equal to heroin).

Our own practice results are totally in line with WHO findings: the vast majority of our patients benefit from adding CBD to their medical cannabis treatment.  We are happy that WHO has recognized what we have been doing for a couple of years: helping people get better with CBD.
