Common issues that most people seek relief for are pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD was put under the authority of the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for oversight. Since its legal status is relatively new there is not enough research for the FDA to allow for any definitive statements regarding medical use. More and more clinical studies are coming out that are showing the value of CBD in various scenarios. It will take some time for medical research to have the data it needs. However, the FDA has asserted that CBD extracted from hemp is safe and legal. The federal government defers to the individual states for specific guidelines. Those who use CBD will attest to the benefits they have gained. It can be helpful to engage in a conversation with other CBD users, to gain insight from their experience on how it might help you. Direct medical benefit is not being asserted at this time until the FDA has more information.
