USA|DEA moves CBD medicines off Schedule 1, reclassifying as Schedule 5

o-10163841-570

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has taken some cannabidiol out of the most restrictive class of controlled substances, a move that allows the sale of the first nonsynthetic, cannabis-derived medicine to win federal approval.

It’s a decision that immediately affects CBD producers but also signals the agency’s first admission that the plant has medical value.

The DEA announced Thursday that drugs including CBD with THC content below 0.1% are now considered Schedule 5 drugs, as long as they have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

  1. “The DEA announced Thursday that drugs including CBD with THC content below 0.1% are now considered Schedule 5 drugs, as long as they have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.” This ruling is not a good thing. The FDA basically said that if you are big pharma…GW Pharma in this specific case and you have a CBD isolate then it is completely safe to sell over the counter people can basically consume as much as they want. If you extract the EXACT same thing from the plant using the EXACT same methods, but your company didn’t have the millions it takes to go through trials, it is of no medicinal value and is highly addictive.

    Nope, what this is is yet another Big Pharma play to corner a market that for 100 years now they have spent billions trying to keep elicit and illegal.

    It is a payoff. Plain and simple.

    Should we really be surprised though?

    $330 Million spent last year lobbying Congress. (That’s almost a half million dollars to every member of Congress and each and every Senator.)

    It’s sick. But hey, let’s trust Big Pharma. Look at what they have done for us lately.

    Nope, give the body what it needs – the right nutrients, minerals, and vitamins, and it will heal itself.

    Natural is always best.
