Please note that the medical use of Cannabis is not lawful in every state, and in the states where it is lawful the legal and medical standards for use vary from state to state.  CBD is not approved by the FDA.  States have passed some regulations regarding CBD, but there are still many questions about the legality of CBD. It is critical that physicians and healthcare professionals apply their knowledge keeping in mind the legal limits and standards in the state and area they practice.  It is incumbent on physicians and healthcare professionals to ensure that any products they may use or recommend are manufactured under strict standards to ensure the highest quality control.
