UK Legalizes CBD- Could USA be next?

Kind Staff

Last week officials in the UK ruled that CBD has been shown to have medical value. The ruling by the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) would allow access to certified quality CBD to UK patients and almost more importantly, would allow for extensive scientific testing that could push our understanding of CBD into a new era. This is widely seen as a positive step in the route to ending the war on Cannabis worldwide.

The official ruling comes mere weeks after the United States and its DEA moved to reschedule CBD in a move that has met with mixed reactions. Some claim the move has made CBD more “illegal” ,while others herald it as a way forward to a new scientific backed understanding of CBD by allowing more research labs and universities access.  Many in our community (rightfully) fear that pharmaceutical companies will soon have free reign in the CBD market and that certain paths to legalization will entrench wealthy players with more extensive political connections and economic standings. -However many patients and advocates hope that future legality will encourage large pharma to also develop cannabis and work on making CBD and other Cannabinoids more effective for human therapeutic uses. Both sides will agree there needs to be more scientific access as well as an immediate  end of the criminalization of its use worldwide.

CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive component in THC that aides in a great deal of illnesses and ailments. There is a great deal of scientific evidence from Europe and Israel that suggests CBD can be revolutionary in treating particular seizure ailments as well inflammatory issues. Currently there is a legal Hemp based CBD market in Europe that sources much of the world “legal” CBD products. Here is Michigan, patents can find CBD products sourced from Europe as described earlier, or if they are enrolled in the state’s Medical Marijuana program they can obtain CBD products sourced from strains of Cannabis with high amounts of CBD, such as Cannatonic #4 or Charlotte’s Web.
