Regulations May Be Coming To CBD Products In New York

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – New York State is on track to regulate CBD and hemp products, with lawmakers saying the rules are needed to protect consumers as the market for such products booms. Those regulations have now come in a bill co-sponsored by state Sen. Jen Metzger. While marijuana legalization overall failed in Albany, this bill was salvaged and passed the Legislature on the last day of the session. “The FDA has not put forward federal regulations yet and it’s kind of been left to the state at this point,” Metzger said. She says the goal is to help the consumer. “That they’re getting a quality product that’s been tested and that has accurate labeling information,” she said. CBD products are popping up everywhere, from ice cream to coffee to pet products. Metzger’s bill mandates licenses...

CBD Infused Foods Have Officially Arrived

Texas might be dragging its heels on more progressive marijuana laws, but that hasn’t stopped local chefs from experimenting in the murky middle ground presented by cannabidiol (CBD oil), hemp’s non-psychoactive compound. The anti-anxiety tincture can now be found in everything from juices (Jugo), to baked goods (Keep Austin Baked), to ice cream (Prohibition Creamery).  Kinda Tropical chef-partner John DiCicco has become something of the de facto figurehead of cannabidiol cooking with his gluten-free CBD waffle that has inundated Instagram feeds with its hemp leaf design. “I never wanted to be the culinary equivalent of Planet K,” he says, “but the flavor is incredibly distinct, and it perfectly matches the tropical vibe of the restaurant.”   Courtesy of Austin Monthly

CBD Could Be Used as Antibiotic, Researchers Say

A cannabis product could be used as an antibiotic one day, Australian researchers say. According to research presented at the American Society for Microbiology’s annual meeting, which takes place June 20-24 in San Francisco, the cannabis compound cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, holds potential for being used as an antibiotic one day. Researchers found CBD “had a similar potency to established antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin, and did not lose effectiveness after extended treatment.” Dr. Mark Blaskovich, one of the researchers from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland, told the Daily News that studies showed CBD worked “in vivo” or in animal models, as a topical treatment or possibly on bacteria on the skin before surgery. From budgeti...

Doctor or Nurse Practitioner Starting Point for Getting a Medical Cannabis Prescription

Medical cannabis has been legal in Canada for almost two decades, but with recreational’s entrance into the regulated space last October, rules around accessing medical cannabis changed. So how does a patient go about getting a prescription? There are two broad-stroke things to do to get the process started: meet with a healthcare practitioner and then register with a licensed producer. The exact guidelines for gaining authorization to medical cannabis can vary from province to province, per the standards of each provincial medical college. Depending on wait times, the process can take anywhere between a few weeks and a year (the time it takes to get an appointment with some clinics sometimes accounts for the bulk of the waiting time). Kira London-Nadeau, chair of Canadian Students for Sen...

FDA Update Offers No New Guidelines for CBD

In a lengthy news release, the Food and Drug Administration said they would apply a “rigorous and science-based approach” in devising regulations for CBD. The update comes three weeks after the agency held its first public hearing on the cannabinoid. The release, authored by Dr. Amy Abernethy, principal deputy commissioner, and Lowell Schiller, principal associate commissioner for policy, indicates that while the agency recognizes the “significant public interest” in CBD products, “there are many unanswered questions about the science, safety, and quality of many of these products.” “The FDA’s approach to cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds has been consistent. We treat substances derived from cannabis just like we do any other substances, and they are subject to the same authorities a...
