FDA Versus CBD Diet Supplements

CBD diet supplements & the FDA’s false crusade

This long standing debate needs to be answered with a little description about the key constituents of the Cannabis plant. The Cannabis plant, naturally found in the Asian countries, has got two major compounds which belong to the family of Cannabinoids. These are CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). It has been reported that THC is naturally present in high amounts in marijuana, which is responsible for giving the users a feeling of being on a “high”. Other than this, the side effects are always mounting major problems. However, CBD, the other variant compound of this plant does not pose any side effects such as THC. With continuous improved breeding techniques, farmers have been able to produce a variant of Cannabis higher in CBD content with nearly a zero concentration of THC compound.

More than just this, there are multiple studies which suggest endless benefits of CBDs. Some of them are anti-emetic, anti-convulsant, anti-psychotic, anti-cancer, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory effects on patients having nausea, vomiting, seizures, chemotherapy, etc. Moreover, it is well-tolerated and safe for individuals and also does not suit the recreational purpose for producing a “high” as in marijuana addicts.

In spite of the above mentioned benefits of CBDs, the FDA continuously rages against the companies manufacturing CBD drugs and supplements. The recently awarded warning letters to eight drug manufacturing companies of the United States, which clearly figures that FDA does not support over the counter sale of any product containing extracts from the Cannabis plant.

FDA has found these companies to be liable for making wrong labels of product description, where the products, upon testing were not found to contain the mentioned ingredient in the specified amount. Also, FDA states under its laws that a dietary supplement can never be investigated as a drug before. However, in this case, CBDs clinical trials have already been instituted by the GW Pharmaceuticals investigations regarding Sativex, which is a CBD containing drug for multiple sclerosis. Further, these supplements cannot make claims to treat, cure or prevent any disease. They cannot be prescribed without the advice of any medical examiner. FDA does not state these products to be safe for human and pet use.

However, what needs to be understood is that there are two variants of Cannabis, the hemp plant and marijuana, which are bred differently. Due to this, medical marijuana is higher in posing psychotropic effects (because it has a higher concentration of THC) on the brain while its counterpart, the hemp plant (low in THC concentration) does not implicate such effects.

The claims mentioned by the FDA regarding the percentage of the ingredients can be corrected. But what seems is that FDA has plans to curb the existence of each and every manufacturer or seller of CBD diet supplements. This is totally unjust for the honest suppliers who manufacture correct formulation of the supplement. Why should they as a similar product supplier, suffer from this protocol?

The FDA seems to have resorted to illicit methods, in order to ensure their reign over the public. But what democracy funds to every citizen is the right to ensure his wellness. When the nature gifts us with numerous medicinal plant products to get benefits from, those benefits which have already been studied and proven over time, then why do we need to resort to over priced pharmaceutical drugs?

What FDA recognizes and wants us to accept is the not so natural and pure way. Yes, they acclaim the much more hazardous drugs for the “CURE” of some critically managed health conditions, but would not like us to escort to the much easier and healthier option of using dietary supplements, which essentially works!

FDA has clearly threatened the sellers to stop selling their product as a dietary supplement. But what people need to think is why the safest way of managing a disease has to cease in a nation with an alarming rate of increase in sufferers of medical conditions? Why can the natural ingredient not be made a part of the daily diet instead of taking the synthetically reproduced pills.

This concern is not about the sale of any supplement, but about the fact that why can the people not appreciate the health benefits of CBD diet supplements when they have been claimed as safe and equally tolerable. Why the authority restricts its use when they pose no side effects on the users? Just because some of them were not sold in the correct concentration. Or because some of them made unrealistic statements!

NO, it cannot bring an end to this! We all need to stand in unison against this, against the monopoly, against the few decision makers. This will be for us, for our health, for our children’s health, for our nation. We need to realize our rights at this moment and need to decide whom we need to support, the false bureaucrats or the genuine proofs.

Also, corruption has got its roots deep and political favors for personal benefits is not rare, these days. It’s certain that all this will not give results in a single day, but we need a desire to make a difference and  dedicated efforts to embark a change. Only we need to take an initiative to say NO to what has been forced upon us and decide what we want for us. This calls for all those who aim to live the future with healthier foods with least dependency on deadly drugs.

James Sol Radina

About James Sol Radina

As CEO and Co-Founder of BioCBD Plus™, James Sol Radina brings years of experience and accumulated expertise from the CBD industry. His interest originated in early 2014, when James embarked on a major filmmaking project to travel and study CBD around the world. Together with a team of filmmakers, he sought out to interview top doctors, scientists, and researchers about CBD, which, at the time, was relatively lesser known, but was starting a buzz in the market. After seeing first-hand the results that CBD had in the patients and experts they filmed, James was “all in!” and his business pursuits began. James started BioCBD Plus™ in 2015, with the goal to fill a niche void that existed in the CBD industry. With the knowledge he gained through his study of CBD, combined with new scientific research, he created the world’s first water-soluble, 100% BioAvailable CBD. The proprietary formula is whole-plant based and more easily absorbable by the body than other CBD products on the market, and the company’s product suite has continued to expand following its demonstrated success. The strength of James’ passion for CBD is matched by his dedication to volunteer service. He incorporated a strong socially responsible model to BioCBD Plus™, which supports The Veterans Discount Program and other programs through donations of CBD products to those who cannot afford them. Since the start of the company, James has also continued to be the inspirational energy behind the company’s beliefs and marketing strategy, which are driven by his commitment to spreading the science-based truth about CBD and bringing the healing benefits of the product to as many people as possible.
