The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report stating CBD oil is a safe and effective medicine. The report affirms the medicine’s effectiveness while adding there are no known side effects or potential for abuse.

“To date, there is no evidence of the recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD,” the report states.

To take this further, WHO even defined CBD oil as an effective medicine for epilepsy in children, adults and animals. The organization said there is also preliminary evidence that CBD oil has positive results in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, psychosis, Parkinson’s disease and other conditions.

This report’s findings are at odds with the federal government, as CBD remains inaccurately classified as a Schedule I controlled substance. This classification means the substance has a high potential for abuse and no medicinal benefits, which has just been disproven by WHO.

The report did point out that the United States is not among several countries who have amended their regulatory framework in light of CBD’s medicinal benefits.

The Food and Drug Administration has repeatedly declined to update its position on cannabis products despite ever-growing research on the subject. The administration will be advising WHO in its final review of CBD.
