CBD DOSAGE FORMS

The statements regarding CBD have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. CBD is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

CBD has become extremely prevalent among tens of millions of Americans. This has happened largely without the blessing or guidance of the FDA. Because of the unique scenario in which the CBD industry finds itself, people purchase CBD for a wide variety of reasons, and there are no empirically determined dosing recommendations. In fact, because the FDA hasn’t approved the off-label use of CBD, it’s federally illegal for a CBD manufacturer or seller to make dosing recommendations.

One caveat to this situation is the FDA-approved usage of Epidiolex®, which is produced by GW Pharmaceuticals and indicated for several childhood seizure disorders. Because this drug – of which cannabidiol is the only active pharmaceutical ingredient – is FDA-approved, and therefore has specific manufacturer-determined doses, the rest of the CBD industry has loosely taken cues in formulating the concentration of their products, without making direct dosing recommendations for users.
