The deal will significantly increase the scale of production of both Caumz (synthetic tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)) and HCC011 (inhaled delta-9-THC) – with production capacity increased from 2,500 dosing capsules in a three-day period to 100,000 dosage units in a single eight-hour period.

In addition, the products will receive four additional manufacturing patents related to the production method.

The partnership sees Vitiprints, a specialist in 2D printing technology, provide Tetra Bio-Pharma with an exclusive license to use the technology for the commercial production of its two drug candidates, for use within a vaporizing system, Caumz-kit.

In exchange for the license to use the technology, Vitiprints will receive undisclosed milestone and royalty payments based on potential sales of the Caumz product.

Vitiprints will visit Tetra’s manufacturing site in Moncton, Canada, with the aim of introducing its technology to the site during the spring of this year, the company stated.

Guy Chamberland, Tetra’s CEO, noted that once this has been implemented, a further scale-up and transfer will take place in its Greater Montreal facility.

The company added that this method of manufacture will reduce cost of goods sold by 75%.

Caumz is currently at the Phase II trial stage for the treatment of both advanced cancer pain and breakthrough pain, while HCC011 is being investigated at the same stage for hepatocellular carcinoma.

In the latter indication, Tetra is exploring HCC011 to improve quality of life for cancer patients, as well as exploring potential antitumor activity.

Based on consultation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Tetra will apply for approval through fast track designation and accelerated approval for Caumz.

DEAR MAYO CLINIC: I’m interested in trying CBD for knee pain. I see CBD for sale everywhere — even at gas stations. How do I figure out which kind to buy? Are CBD products that are available without a prescription safe and effective?

ANSWER: When it comes to trying products made with cannabidiol, or CBD, that you can buy without a prescription, be careful. There’s some preliminary research that shows potential benefits of using CBD for certain medical problems, particularly pain, sleep disorders and anxiety. But at this time, there’s no consistent oversight to ensure the purity and safety of nonprescription CBD products, or to verify claims manufacturers make about them. Before you try CBD, talk to your health care provider.

CBD is a chemical found in marijuana, but it doesn’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that produces a high. The typical formulation of CBD is a liquid that you take orally. But CBD is sold as an extract, a vaporized liquid and an oil-based capsule, too. There also are many CBD-infused products, including food, drinks and beauty products.

The only CBD product specifically approved by the Food and Drug Administration is Epidiolex, a prescription medication that’s used to treat two types of epilepsy: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Aside from Epidiolex, which is approved nationwide, laws vary from state to state regarding other forms of CBD.

CBD production is not tightly regulated. That means it’s difficult to know exactly what’s in the CBD products for sale in your community or if the dose listed on the container matches what actually is in the product. Some CBD products include chemicals and herbs, such as echinacea, that may or may not be listed on the label.

One study of 84 CBD products bought online found that more than one-quarter of the products contained less CBD than labeled. In addition, THC was found in 18 of those products.

At this time, there is no definitive evidence to support the effectiveness of nonprescription CBD to treat specific medical problems. But research is ongoing into CBD as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including pain, sleep disorders, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Some evidence suggests that CBD may be useful in treating pain, indicating that there could be a role for CBD as an alternative to opioid medication for challenging chronic pain or to treat opioid addiction.

Before you try nonprescription CBD for any medical concern, you need to talk with your health care provider. There are a few reasons for that. First, CBD can interfere with other medications, so it’s important to review your current medications with your health care provider to confirm that CBD won’t affect them. Second, CBD can cause side effects, including dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. It also can affect liver function.

Before you begin taking CBD, your health care provider may recommend a liver function test, along with follow-up tests while you’re taking CBD, to check that your liver is not being damaged. Third, if you and your health care provider decide CBD may be worthwhile for you, he or she can help you determine which product to buy.

Certain brands and preparations of nonprescription CBD have been tested to verify the amount of CBD they contain and identify other ingredients in them. Your health care provider can help you find one of those verified products. Do not take a nonprescription CBD product without consulting your health care provider first. Although CBD shows some promise, many CBD products on the market today are poorly regulated, and manufacturer’s claims about their benefits are unsubstantiated, so it’s important to proceed with caution.

DOT CBD Notice

The Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a memo answering common questions about the use of CBD products for safety-sensitive workers.

On Tuesday, the DOT shared a notice intended to clear up confusion about the use of CBD products by safety-sensitive employees in the transportation industry, including pilots, train engineers, and truck drivers.

DOT reminds workers that it is never acceptable for safety-sensitive employees who are subject to drug testing regulations to consume marijuana.

Workers are also warned to use caution if they do decide to consume CBD:

“Since the use of CBD products could lead to a positive drug test result, Department of Transportation-regulated safety-sensitive employees should exercise caution when considering whether to use CBD products.”

The notice outlines three major points about the use of CBD by safety-sensitive workers:

  • The Department of Transportation requires testing for marijuana and not CBD. 
  • The labeling of many CBD products may be misleading because the products could contain higher levels of THC than what the product label states. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not currently certify the levels of THC in CBD products, so there is no Federal oversight to ensure that the labels are accurate. The FDA has cautioned the public that: “Consumers should beware purchasing and using any [CBD] products.”  The FDA has stated: “It is currently illegal to market CBD by adding it to a food or labeling it as a dietary supplement.”*  Also, the FDA has issued several warning letters to companies because their products contained more CBD than indicated on the product label.
  • The Department of Transportation’s Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulation, Part 40, does not authorize the use of Schedule I drugs, including marijuana, for any reason. Furthermore, CBD use is not a legitimate medical explanation for a laboratory-confirmed marijuana positive result. Therefore, Medical Review Officers will verify a drug test confirmed at the appropriate cutoffs as positive, even if an employee claims they only used a CBD product.

Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil is an unexpected delight. Its simple ingredients make it one of our favorite CBD skin care products out there.

If you’ve paid attention to skin care trends over the past year, you’ll know that CBD is exploding in popularity — and for good reason. CBD, a natural compound derived from the hemp plant, is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Many skin care companies are now recognizing this potential and have started to add CBD to their product lineups. This is more than just hype. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can be useful outside our bodies, just like they help many people’s overall well being when taken internally.

One of our Top CBD Brands, Populum took heed of CBD’s beneficial skin care properties and recently launched its newest product that combines moisturizing oils with 250mg of hemp-based CBD and lavender essential oil.

Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil does not disappoint. It is uniquely formulated to do all the things you’d expect from a face oil, as well as provide all the benefits of CBD. And it has a calming floral scent that helps you to feel relaxed and at ease. 

We loved using this after washing our face in the evening. And it can even be a sweet, soothing start to the morning routine. After a couple weeks, our reviewer noticed some reduction in the size of some blemishes. And our skin was consistently soft. We love using the oil on our hands too.

Hemp and lavender are a perfect match for your skin

What stood out to us most about Lavender + CBD Face Oil is the lovely lavender aroma. It is reminiscent of a fresh field of lavender and mixed with a grounding hemp scent. It instantly put us in a relaxed mood.

We appreciated that Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil only has a few simple, skin healthy ingredients.

Many people are wary of face oils due to the “greasy” feeling some give. This one absorbed quickly and actually left our skin soft the next morning. The CBD and lavender in this product are mixed with hemp seed and grapeseed oil, both of which are noncomedogenic oils. That means they’re good for your skin and won’t clog your pores.

It’s best to use after cleansing your face. To use, we simply dropped a few drops in our palm and rubbed our hands together. Then, we massaged the oil all around the face. A little goes a long way. It’s great to get a drop each under eye as well. It also feels nice on the neck and hands. It is best when used consistently and best for folks who enjoy floral, earthy aromas.

Here’s what we loved about Populum’s Lavender + CBD Face Oil: 

  • Lavender + CBD Antioxidants: In addition to the great benefits of hemp CBD, lavender has antioxidant properties which can help protect against free radicals.
  • Soothing Scent: Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil has a calming floral scent that helps you to feel relaxed and at ease.  It’s the perfect way to end a busy day and help you relax before falling asleep.

Populum’s clean beauty promise

Regulation of the skin care industry is even looser than the supplement industry.

Companies are not required to test skin care products before going to market. According to the FDA’s website, “the FDA does not have a list of tests required for any particular cosmetic product or ingredient,” and the FDA does “not require cosmetic products and ingredients, except for color additives, to be approved before they go on the market.”

Just like the CBD industry, it is the responsibility of the skin care company to “ensure that their products are safe and properly labeled,” according to the FDA. While the FDA does require cosmetics to provide ingredient labels, many companies include ingredients such as “fragrance” which can be a catchall for ingredients not listed on the label.

This means that consumers must be especially vigilant when choosing skin care products. We appreciate the transparency Populum brings to the table. Populum, like all the best brands we work with, go much further than regulations require, carefully sourcing only the purest, safest ingredients.

Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil soothed our skin with the power of CBD, while the relaxing scent of lavender helped us settle into bed.

Just four carefully-sourced ingredients

This is the perfect face oil for people who love a short ingredient list. Populum Lavender + CBD Face Oil only has four ingredients: non-GMO hemp oil, lavender oil, hemp seed oil, and grapeseed oil. 

Each ingredient was specially curated for its beneficial properties. Full spectrum hemp extract offers all the trace cannabinoids and terpenes that are naturally occurring in hemp plants that support skin health. Antioxidant-rich lavender helps is a natural skin care ingredient with centurie of use, not to mention a calming floral scent that helps you to feel at ease. Even the hemp seed oil and grapeseed oil are nourishing to your skin.

Populum verifies the quality of their CBD skin care products through third-party lab-testing. This means that they send their products to an independent company to test for things that should be in the product as well as things that should not be in the product. A paper copy of the lab tests is included with every order, which is an extra step that few brands take.

PHOTO COURTESY OF ISTOCK

Sex is a fraught topic. Most like it. Some even say they need it. But because of the ups and downs that come with being a human in the world, having good, consistent sex is elusive for many. There is good news, though: Cannabis can help, a lot.

To convey why cannabis and sex make perfect bedfellows, Ashley Manta, known as The CannaSexual, is an award-winning sex educator who knows best.

“Cannabis can help address the things that get in the way of pleasure, connection, intimacy, common things,” Manta told SN&R.

She speaks from personal experience, as someone who regularly uses a suite of cannabis products to enhance her personal experiences, and she also takes notes from her clients. She said that pain, for example, is one of many common factors that get in the way of having good sex. It’s tough to get into a pleasure mindset when pain occurs.

“Stress is another one. It’s a massive arousal and desire killer for most. Another is feeling disconnected from your body for whatever reason, whether it’s from past trauma or you’re just someone who’s very cerebral and have moved through the world kind of in your own head,” she said. “It’s a struggle to slow down and actually kind of be present in your own skin. And yet another reason is habituation—when things just get kind of stale in a relationship. Cannabis can help with all of this.”

I can personally attest that this is true. After emerging from a sexless marriage a couple of years ago, I used my newly-found singledom to get my sexuality back on track, but was understandably terrified to get back in the game. I found that using cannabis (even just smoking it) helped to quiet both my mind and my body and allowed me to be in the moment. It also enhanced my arousal and sensation. Suddenly, sex was not only happening for me again—it was fun, too.

Apart from anecdotal evidence, there is science behind the assertion that cannabis is ideal for use during sex. THC is a vasodilator, which widen blood vessels, allowing for greater blood flow and thus sensation. It’s also the reason people get red eyes when smoking weed.

For those looking to incorporate cannabis into their sex life, smoking flower is an easy and great way to start. I used to recommend indica-heavy strains, owing to purportedly stronger body highs, but when I mentioned this to Manta, she balked.

“I make it a point to not recommend a specific strain perfects because it’s completely subjective. I mean, it’s really good for me. It might be absolutely abysmal for you based on body chemistry, tolerance and the cannabinoid and terpenes profile of the strain that you happen to pick,” she explained.

Velvet Swing’s Cannabis Enhanced Sensual Lubricant is recommended by local budtenders at Kolas dispensary.

PHOTO COURTESY OF VELVET SWING

She encourages people to experiment with different strains in small doses and suggests masturbating first to gauge the mind and body response. Because cannabis impacts short-term memory, she said it’s a good idea to write it down.

Besides flower, Manta recommends Foria’s THC and CBD oil “lubes” for those who are curious. The term is a bit of a misnomer because it’s more a sensation-enhancing oil than an actual lubricant.

I enjoy a THC-loaded oil called Night Moves from the San Francisco-based brand Quim. Made with MCT oil, cannabis oil, tea tree oil and damiana, it takes at least 30 minutes to kick in and cannot be used with latex condoms, but it sure packs a vaginal punch. The whole bottle is 50 milliliters and contains a total of 350 milligrams THC, but eight to 10 pumps should be enough for one romp in the hay.

I also like to mix concentrates and sex, though admittedly, it isn’t for cannabis newbies. The Puffco Peak, which is essentially a futuristic dab rig that self-heats and doesn’t require a blowtorch (it is also highly portable) is, hands down, the best dab tool on the market right now. The extreme head rush and body sensation one gets from dabbing kicks sex up to an unimaginable level. Sensations are felt stronger, inhibitions are lowered and, for me, deeper connection is achieved. Sometimes, my partner and I use it during sex for a mid-sesh punch up.

Edibles are another obvious choice. Like with anything else cannabis-related, users should know how their bodies react to edibles before mixing anything as emotionally and physically engaging as sex into the equation. But because edibles produce phenomenal body highs, it follows that they can enhance feeling during sex, too.

Manta also notes that she enjoys bath bombs—Kush Queen is a favorite brand of hers (and mine)—as well as suppositories (she uses Foria’s). Suppositories are particularly good for people with any kind of pain, including menstrual.

Several Sacramento budtenders at local dispensaries commented that their customers keep asking for cannabis sex products, but that they haven’t gotten around to carrying them yet.

At Kolas, however, customers looking to incorporate cannabis in the boudoir will strike gold. Over the phone, its budtender squealed, “Yes! We sure do carry them. I use one that is amazing,” she said, asking not to be named.

“I use Velvet Swing’s Cannabis Sensual Lubricant. I dabbled in it myself so I could be able to recommend it to customers or not,” she said.

She added that, like many cannabis sex oils, Velvet Swing’s has 100mg THC, 33mg CBD and is water-based. It’s also geared toward women since vaginas have mucous membranes and penises do not. But she also noted that she believes it does make men last longer.

“I use a few pumps and wait for it to kick in, about 20 or so minutes. Then it starts feeling tingly down there,” she said, giggling.

I felt the same way when I used cannabis “lubes” and mixed cannabis and sex for the first time. With a little education (and a few experiments in the bedroom) I’m hoping others can have the same revelation, too.

Lately, there has been a surge of brain health supplements on the market. And a lot of people are taking them. AARP conducted a survey which showed that 25% of Americans over 50 years of age are taking brain health supplements. People take these in order to boost their memory, cognitive function, alertness, creativity, and motivation. But how effective are brain health supplements really? Since they are supplements, they do not fall under FDA standards, which means that there is not a lot of interest for producers to prove the effectiveness of their supplements. All they need is to provide a good marketing strategy and supply the product. However, some research has been done. In this article, I will review the top 6 brain health supplements and provide a more factual look on the brain boosters world.

Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil)

Fish oil is rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). They have a connection with many health benefits. DHA is an important constituent of the cell membranes of the brain cells. In fact, of all the fatty acids in your brain, 25% is DHA. EPA, on the other hand, has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect, which protects the brain from aging and damage. When it comes to hard evidence, the data is mixed.

Many studies suggest that brain health supplements rich in DHA improve memory and cognitive function in healthy individuals on a low DHA intake. On the other hand, some studies suggest that fish oil, on itself, has no significant protective effect on the brain. All taken into account, my advice would be to include fatty fish like salmon and mackerel in your regular diet. If however, that is no option for you, you might find fish oil-based supplements beneficial (make sure they are rich in DHA ).

Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a compound found in membranes of brain cells. The amount of Phosphatidylserine naturally reduces as we age, making our brain cells more susceptible to damage. Some studies claim that phosphatidylserine may reduce age-related memory loss in the elderly. Another study suggests that PS improves cognitive function in healthy young individuals without having any adverse effects.

Creatine and Brain Health

Creatine is a substance found naturally in your body, mostly in muscles, but also in the brain.  It plays an important role in energy metabolism. Creatine is a popular supplement for bodybuilders since it provides more energy when lifting weights thus making them grow muscles faster.

Naturally, you can find creatine in animal-based foods, like eggs, milk, and meat. And since it is also important for brain function, no wonder that taking creatine as a brain health supplement can improve memory and cognitive function in vegans and vegetarians. However, meat-eaters don’t seem to benefit from creatine supplementation. Therefore, I would recommend creatine as a brain health supplement if you don’t eat meat or animal-based products.

Bacopa Monnieri

Bacopa Monnieri is a supplement made from the plant of the same name. It is used in many traditional practices like Ayurveda as a brain function enhancer. Some research suggests that it improves memory by stimulating dendrite growth and branching in neurons.  Many studies have shown that it has a protective effect on memory in both the healthy, of all ages, as well as people suffering from some sort of memory decline.

It is also good for increasing cognitive function, decreasing anxiety, etc. but those effects are not proven. The effect of bacopa on memory, however, has been proven. The only thing is you have to be a little patient since it takes four to six weeks of regular intake for it to kick in.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea is another plant that is used in Chinese medicine as a brain health supplement. Experts consider it to be an effective adaptogen. That means it helps the body and the brain handle stress while maintaining peak performance. Rhodiola supposedly reduces brain fatigue and increases brain function.

Rhodiola can be helpful especially for people in periods of stress, like lack of sleep, physical or mental exhaustion. Some studies suggest that Rhodiola truly is effective in increasing brain function and endurance while some claim that is not the case. Either way, it requires more research to inquire into the effects and optimal dosage of Rhodiola.

CBD (cannabidiol)

CBD (cannabidiol) is arguably the supplement getting the largest chunk of attention these days. Being an active ingredient of cannabis surely has something to do with it. But its medical potential should is enormous. Considering its safety and lack of psychoactive effects, scientists all around the world conducted studies on CBD benefits. Some of those studies, as well as personal testimonies, have shown that CBD effectively reduces inflammation, helps with pain management, helps people with anxiety and depression. When it comes to the effects of CBD on the brain, here is what it has to offer.

– Neuroprotective effect – One study states that CBD “ decreases the production of inflammatory cytokines, influences microglial cells to return to a ramified state, preserves cerebral circulation during ischemic events, and reduces vascular changes and neuroinflammation”. All of these effects optimize the functioning of neural as well as supportive tissue in the brain.

– Antioxidative effect – Every cell has its own metabolism, and one of the byproducts of cell metabolism is free radicals which are extremely potent in doing oxidative damage to cells. CBD successfully reduces the concentration of free radicals in brain cells and thus saves the cells from damage.

– Antiexcitative effect – Excitotoxicity, a state of the brain when it becomes overactive, common in many neurodegenerative diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. CBD is found to modulate brain excitation and inhibition by optimizing the level of its activity.

CBD and Brain Health Supplements

The effects of CBD on the brain are proving to be many and deep. Nonetheless, at the moment we do not have enough clinical trials to have a clear idea of the precise effects it has on the human brain. If you would like to experiment with it, considering all the possible benefits you could get, do go and talk to your physician about it. Especially if you are taking some meds since CBD does interact with certain drugs.

Also, considering all the possible ways to take CBD (oil drops, vape oil, capsules, patches, and even tea and coffee) it is worth to clarify a couple of things. Pure CBD oil is the most natural way to take CBD. But, pure oil does have a rather unpleasant taste, which is a problem for many people. The second great option is CBD capsules. They are tasteless, very easy to take and come in many different concentrations of CBD.

Conclusion

Even though the research on brain health supplements is not as broad and as strict as on FDA approved drugs, you still can find some relevant information on them. Some of them actually do help your brain function better and you can benefit from using them. If you are a healthy young individual, however, you can obtain the effects you look for by other and more natural means. Try things like making your diet more healthy and balanced, working out regularly, practicing meditation or yoga. If, on the other hand, you are suffering from some sort of brain function impairment and have made appropriate lifestyle changes, checking one or some of these brain health supplements might just give you an improvement you were looking for.

CBD is everywhere these days: You can get it in dispensaries and drug stores or at your local bar and corner store. You can drink it, eat it, vape it, and slather it on your skin. One thing you can’t do? Get stoned on it. While CBD comes from same plants that produce pot, it’s more about healing that about getting high.

The enthusiasts who have made CBD a $1 billion business claim it calms anxiety, eases pain, soothes sleep problems, and more. The theory behind how it works seems promising: CBD — which stands for cannabidiol, a compound found in cannabis plants — is similar to compounds the human body produces naturally, called endocannabinoids, which help regulate stress, sleep, metabolism, memory, inflammation, and immunity. Some think CBD is so similar to these naturally occurring molecules that it can work the same kind of stress-relieving, sleep-inducing, and pain-reducing magic.

But here’s the catch: There’s no definitive scientific evidence that shows exactly how CBD works — or even if it works at all — says Mark Wallace, MD, a professor of anesthesiology at the University of California San Diego, who’s been studying medical cannabis for more than 20 years. “There’s a lot of hype around CBD that’s completely unsubstantiated,” he says. “While there are a lot of theories, we don’t have the proof yet, because it’s been hard to study.” After all, until CBD was legalized on the federal level in 2018, if was difficult for researchers to get any samples to test out.

Before you see for yourself if CBD has healing super powers or is just a scam, here’s important info about how it may work, what researchers do and don’t understand, and what that all means for you.

First, here are some terms you should know before trying CBD.

what is cbd

How CBD might work

While scientists are still figuring out exactly how CBD works, the best theory is that it impacts the endocannabinoid system (ECS) — a complex cell-signaling system that’s thought to regulate a number of important functions in your body, such as stress, sleep, digestion, immunity, memory, and the release of hormones.

The ECS in a nutshell: There are cannabinoid receptors all over your body, though they’re primarily located in the central nervous system and brain (where they’re called CB1 receptors) and in the immune system and inflammatory cells (where they’re called CB2 receptors). Your body produces billions of natural chemicals called endocannabinoids every day, which bind to these receptors to help you do things like sleep, eat, remember where you put your purse, and start the healing process when you cut your finger. When these endocannabinoids are done with their various jobs, enzymes pop up to destroy them.

In the brain, these endocannabinoids act like neurotransmitters — they transport messages from one neuron to another. But rather than send messages with directives to do things, they actually slow down the brain’s signaling, says Mohini Ranganathan, MBBS, associate professor of psychiatry at Yale University and a CBD researcher. “When there’s too much neurotransmission going on — which you might experience as a racing mind, high anxiety, or even an increase in pain — endocannabinoids in the brain help pump the brakes,” says Ranganathan, which might explain why so many people swear by CBD’s anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory effects.

Another theory, adds Wallace, is that while a healthy ECS is able to make its own endocannabinoids to balance out the experience of anxiety or pain signals in the brain, some people don’t produce enough cannabinoids—or if they do, the enzymes destroy them before they have a chance to do their important work. “We think CBD binds to those CB2 receptors to inhibit the release of pain signaling,” says Wallace. Finally, it may be that that CBD allows the body’s naturally-produced cannabinoids to stay in the brain and body longer, prolonging their calming effect.

What can CBD actually do?

Here are the most common medical conditions that prompt people to try CBD, and what the science says so far:

Control Seizures

Right now, the only CBD treatment that has strong enough evidence to become FDA-approved is for treating childhood epilepsy, particularly the cases that typically don’t respond to anti-seizure medications. In a number of studies, pure CBD administered orally via an oil was shown to reduce the number of seizures and in some cases, stop them altogether. In 2018, the FDA gave its stamp of approval to Epidiolex, the first cannabis-derived medicine for seizures.

Calm Anxiety

There are only a handful of small studies showing that CBD can help you chill. One 2019 study of 72 adults with anxiety and poor sleep found that CBD helped alleviate both conditions within a month. Another recent study of 60 men and women found that while clonazepam (a medication used to treat panic disorders) consistently reduced anxiety better than both CBD and placebo, 300 mg of CBD was shown to significantly reduce anxiety compared to the placebo group. (Interestingly, the same wasn’t true when study participants were given 100 mg or 900 mg of CBD, proving more research is needed to figure out the right dosing, says Ranganathan.) However, other studies have found that CBD had no effect on anxiety, leaving experts in agreement that more research is needed understand how CBD might play a role in treating an anxious mind.

Relieve Pain

One study on animals published in the European Journal of Pain found that CBD applied topically could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis. Another study done on rodents found CBD injections prevent inflammatory and nerve pain. Yet the evidence is still pretty slim: When Australian researchers analyzed 104 studies, including more than 10,000 patients, they found that just 29% of patients experienced a 30% reduction in pain after using CBD — not much higher than the 26% who found the same relief using a placebo.

Treat Schizophrenia

Preliminary research indicates that CBD may reduce some of the symptoms of schizophrenia without the side effects that come along with most anti-psychotic drugs. “However, the data is mixed,” says Ranganathan, who has authored studies that show CBD might have some benefit when it comes to treating this mental illness, as well as other studies that have found no effect at all.

But wait — is CBD even legal?

Until recently CBD products (with the exception of the FDA-approved epilepsy drug Epidolex) were lumped into the same category as heroin, according to federal drug laws. However, when Donald Trump signed the Farm Bill into law in December 2018, it legalized CBD that is derived from hemp and contains no more than 0.3% THC. CBD that comes from the marijuana plant is still illegal, since marijuana still has Schedule 1 drug status. Even the TSA recently announced it would allow people to fly with hemp products, including CBD produced within the regulations defined by the new law. “However, we’re still waiting for the USDA to create the final rules regarding the legality of hemp products, which means CBD isn’t yet legal in every state,” says Cristina Buccola, an attorney who specializes in the cannabis industry. “While we wait for federal-level guidance, you should check your own state’s laws. That said, any kind of enforcement we’re seeing as it relates to CBD has been targeted toward the manufacturers and distributors — not the customers.”

The side effects of CBD

It’s possible you will notice drowsiness, dry mouth, and lightheadedness when taking CBD. The FDA strongly advises against using CBD if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The FDA also notes that CBD can cause liver injury and interact negatively with other medications, so it’s important you speak with your doctor before trying a CBD product.

The Dos and Don’ts of buying CBD

Ready to see if CBD can work its alleged magic on you? Proceed carefully with these tips:

DON’T trust labels. A 2017 study published in the journal JAMA found that of 84 CBD products researchers bought online, 43% had more CBD than indicated, 26% had less, and some even had unexpected THC.

✘ DON’T hunt for bargains. “Good CBD is expensive,” says Wallace. “CBD manufacturers have to do a lot of extraction to get CBD oil from hemp plants, and while they’re getting more efficient at that process, it’s time-consuming and expensive.” That’s why most quality CBD products can cost upwards of $50 to $100 for a 1-ounce bottle of oil. However, thanks to the new Farm Bill that legalized hemp, CBD production will likely ramp up, which should drive the costs down.

✘ DON’T believe the hype about the ideal dose. There is absolutely no evidence proving you should take a specific amount for specific result (other than childhood epilepsy — the only medical condition for which CBD is FDA-approved). “We are working on dose studies and trying to figure out how, exactly, CBD is metabolized and absorbed,” says Ranganathan. “We simply don’t have definitive information yet.”

✔ DO look for a “Certificate of Analysis” (CoA) when you order. This document provides lab results of the actual CBD used in the product. If the company website doesn’t include a CoA, call and ask about it — but keep in mind that CoAs aren’t mandatory in every state.

✔ DO choose products made with organic American hemp, which makes it easier to find out if the soil it was grown in has been properly tested. (Hemp is a bio-accumulator, which means it absorbs everything in the soil — including herbicides, pesticides, metals, and fungus, says Wallace.) Better yet: Buy from a state such as California or Colorado that has some sort of cannabis control in place, adds Wallace; this offers another layer of protection against buying a contaminated product.

✔ DO talk to your doctor if you’re going to try CBD. While research on drug interactions with CBD is in its infancy, we do know it has the ability to either stimulate or inhibit the enzymes that metabolize other drugs you might be taking, which could impact the effectiveness of those medications. While the doses in consumer CBD products are typically so low that the risk is likely minimal, says Wallace, it’s still a good idea to talk to your doc about any supplement you’re taking — including CBD.

How to take CBD

Not sure where to even start when it comes to trying CBD? That’s understandable, says Wallace. “This is a very complicated therapy, because there are so many different modes of delivery.” Here, the different ways you can take CBD and how each works:

Edible

how to use cbd - edible

WHAT IT IS: CBD oils and tinctures mixed into chocolate bars, gummies, soft drinks, coffee, popcorn, and salad dressing.

HOW IT WORKS: When CBD travels through your digestive system, only a small percentage gets absorbed, says Ranganathan. “If you ingest 100 mg of CBD only about 5 mg may end up in your bloodstream,” says Ranganathan. While scientists are working on increasing bioavailability, there’s another issue to keep in mind: Different people absorb different amounts of the same dose of CBD. “Even the same person taking the same dose on two different days means it may be absorbed differently,” she adds.

how to use cbd - sublingual

Sublingual

WHAT IT IS: Oils and tinctures that are designed to be held under your tongue before swallowing.

HOW IT WORKS: The CBD passes through a permeable membrane under your tongue, bypassing your digestive system and going right into your bloodstream — meaning you will absorb more than you would by simply eating it. It’s not clear exactly how much CBD is absorbed, though, and a good amount of what you put in your mouth will still be swallowed, just as if you’d taken an edible.

Topical

how to use cbd - lotion

WHAT IT IS: A CBD-infused cream you rub on sore areas like a bum back or arthritic hands.

HOW IT WORKS: A few animal studies have found that transdermal CBD products, which penetrate the skin deep enough to enter the bloodstream, can reduce inflammation and pain-related behavior in rats with arthritis. But we don’t yet know if this translates to humans. Some CBD creams include ingredients such as arnica, menthol, and camphor, which are known to provide an immediate cooling sensation on the skin that distracts from pain — meaning it might not be the CBD at all that soothes the pain in these products.

Should you vape CBD?

When you inhale CBD, it bypasses your digestive system and heads straight for your lung tissue. (One study found that about 25% of the dose of vaped CBD was absorbed, compared with about 5 percent of edible CBD.) But hearing about the dozens of deaths and hundreds of illnesses that have been attributed to vaping may have you rethinking that plan.

While most of the vaping-related deaths have been linked to bootleg products containing THC, that doesn’t mean vaping CBD is safe, says Daniele Piomelli, PhD, professor of anatomy and neurobiology at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine and director of the UCI Center for the Study of Cannabis. “The only info we have about CBD is from clinical trials where CBD is given orally,” he says. “And we haven’t studied the materials in the vaping gadgets. What happens after a certain amount of use at a certain temperature? Could those materials leak into what is vaped and inhaled?”

“We know even less about the health risks of vaping CBD than THC or any of the other marijuana products,” adds Suchitra Krishnan-Sarin, PhD, director of Yale University’s Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science. “We don’t know what concentrations of CBD come in most products and what they do to pulmonary and cardiovascular health.”Until we learn more, both the CDC and the American Medical Association have recommended that people avoid vaping entirely while the cause of vaping-related illnesses and deaths is determined.

Seems that companies are popping up everywhere to produce CBD extracts, oils and isolates.

Currently, regulations on marijuana- or hemp-related products are established by individual states, generally through their departments of agriculture. Companies involved in the growing, handling, processing, holding, marketing or distribution of these products would be wise to acquire and study their state’s requirements thoroughly.

Only one drug related to cannabis has been approved, directed for the treatment of epilepsy. FDA is actively looking into what cannabis and CBD products do, and what they are used for, according to its website. Although hidden marketing claims cover a remarkable number of conditions that CBD can be used for, openly making such claims constitutes the product as a drug. And, in the eyes of FDA, that would make it an unapproved drug and illegal to sell or distribute in the U.S.

More companies are getting into the cannabis/CBD processing and marketing business. They are involved in everything from growing to harvesting, processing and marketing their products. Federal regulations remain a big concern. FDA may take two paths. Because so many companies are involved in the cannabis/CBD industry, FDA might determine these products qualify as GRAS and can be marketed as a dietary supplement without specific drug claims. Or, FDA may decide to classify cannabis/CBD products as a drug, which would require the filing of new drug applications (NDAs) or abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs), and drug establishment registrations along with the required drug listings. The latter would squash smaller companies that are jumping on board in this growing industry.

To prepare for the hemp and CBD challenges ahead, companies should establish a production and process control system as required by the GMPs (good manufacturing practices) for dietary supplements and for finished drug products. These regulations are found in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, Parts 111, 210 and 211. The required production and process control system becomes their company’s operating system. That is, the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and documents required by these regulations must be created as an integrated system, each relying on other SOPs or documents in order to establish complete control over all operations and the quality control (QC) unit. The system must establish specifications for each material used in processing, for each in-process phase of production, and for each finished product, including the finished packaged product. The QC unit must ensure that all specifications are met throughout the entire process.

Additionally, it would be wise collect additional data, including full chemical analysis, clinical trials and testing, stability, etc., on each of the products being produced. This data will help a company remain at the forefront if and when FDA decides to enforce its stance that these products are drugs. A company may not be able to afford filing for an NDA, but if a large pharmaceutical company does, a smaller company that has done the work might find ways to marry in with the larger company and file an ANDA.

Some dietary supplement regulations are stricter than the drug GMPs, likely due to the lack of confidence FDA had in the dietary supplement industry.

Regardless, it makes sense to prepare for what may come.

Hopefully, those who are involved in the cannabis/CBD industry are doing their best to keep the industry at the forefront of quality and compliance.

Throughout his career, he has implemented many GMP and SOP programs in several different companies to meet compliance standards set by FDA
