Same can be said for those MLM companies presenting their products as cures for things there is no scientific (independent, peer reviewed) evidence to back the claims. At least the broad claims they make.
CBD is the latest craze, kind of like DMSO use in the 70's, 80's.
Research on both showed that they showed benefit in a very small number of conditions and when "pure" they were considered safe.
The last statement is the key. Is the product really "pure" and since it's not regulated by the FDA how do you know?
Laws across the nation are starting to change (as State's are starting to exercise their 10th Amendment Rights) but as long as Cannabis and Hemp are regulated by the Fed's it's going to remain possible for a law abiding citizen in one state to become a criminal by merely stepping across a line on the map and also being subject to Federal prosecution where States have "legalized".
The more we travel widely in the country the greater the chance of running afoul of some law.
BTW, for those who travel with prescription medications (who doesn't today
) Don't just take what you will need for the trip from the bottles they came in from the pharmacy and put them in one of those dispenser boxes with doses segregated by day, time of day, and holding a week's supply. Law requires that all prescription med's remain in bottle issued by pharmacy with prescription number, etc on the label. Even removing your name on the label to protect your privacy can in some jurisdictions result in an arrest on "drug charges".
It's even more complex if you travel with a F***arm. Even with a permit from your home state the manner in which you can carry it changes as you cross just about every State line. I have a "chart" I prepare before starting a multi-state trip that tells me what is legal or not by checking each state's laws on the internet. For those who carry CBD or anything controversial like it, check the net and make sure you won't run afoul of the laws in states along your trip.
Travel is fun, right?
