10 top-rated states for medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, February, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

While it's still controversial, medical marijuana is edging toward normality. Forty states (and the District of Columbia) now have some form of law on the books that allow the drug to be used for a variety of ailments, and sales are soaring— reaching $5.4 billion in 2015.

That doesn't mean it's widely available in all of those states, of course. Some, like Alabama and South Carolina, have extremely strict circumstances under which cannabidiol products can be prescribed, and still forbid the production and distribution of the drug. And even in states where it's easier to come by, there are differences in how it's handled.

CBD Medicines Face New National Challenges

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, February, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

cbdThe Cannabis Benchmarks Weekly Report tells us that a half-dozen companies who market CBD-laden medicines and foods were sent letters this month from the FDA warning them against making claims of health benefits.

CBD is the shortened name of cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid chemical prevalent in cannabis, especially when plants are specifically bred by master growers to express this characteristic. CBD medicines are currently available to patients in 23 licensed medical marijuana states, the District of Columbia, and 15 additional states where CBD-based treatments are the only form of medical marijuana legally available to citizens.

Six American companies that market and sell CBD products received letters from the FDA this month, warning them about language used on their websites. New Cannabis Ventures, the Benchmarks publisher, claims it is “the FDA’s opinion that even marketing CBD products as a dietary supplement is at this time against the law.”

They cite this passage from one of the letters authored by the Food and Drug Administration:

“If a substance (such as CBD) has been authorized for investigation as a new drug for which substantial clinical investigations have been instituted and for which the existence of such investigations has been made public, then products containing that substance are outside the definition of a dietary supplement. There is an exception if the substance was “marketed as” a dietary supplement or a conventional food before the new drug investigations were authorized; however, based on available evidence, FDA has concluded that this is not the case for CBD.”
