Hemp oil extracts containing CBDs (cannibidiols) are such a threat to the pharmaceutical industry that the FDA is now invoking totally insane justifications for outlawing them.

CBDs are non-psychoactive compounds found naturally in hemp plants. They work so well as powerful natural medicine that people everywhere are realizing CBDs work better than pharmaceuticals for treating epilepsy, seizures, neurological disorders and other serious health conditions (including HIV infections).

So the FDA has just launched a massive regulatory assault against CBDs by invoking the most insane logic you’ve ever heard. Here’s how it goes:

1) CBDs work so well that drug companies are now investigating them to be approved by the FDA as medicines.

2) Because CBDs are being investigated by drug companies, the FDA has granted CBDs status as being “investigated as a new drug.” In the FDA’s own language from their website, “FDA considers a substance to be ‘authorized for investigation as a new drug’ if it is the subject of an Investigational New Drug application (IND) that has gone into effect.”

3) Because CBDs work so well and have been authorized for drug investigations, the FDA is now attempting to regulate them out of existence as dietary supplements. Per the FDA’s own website: “FDA has concluded that cannabidiol products are excluded from the dietary supplement definition under section 201(ff)(3)(B)(ii) of the FD&C Act. Under that provision, if a substance (such as cannabidiol) has been authorized for investigation as a new drug for which substantial clinical investigations have been instituted and for which the existence of such investigations has been made public, then products containing that substance are outside the definition of a dietary supplement.”

4) Now the FDA has begun sending warning letters to CBD makers, claiming they are in violation of FDA regulations because they are selling “adulterated products.” Adulterated with what, exactly? CBDs, of course! “The debate over hemp CBD’s legal status continues after FDA sent eight warning letters to manufacturers of CBD dietary supplement and food products earlier this month,” reports Nutritional Outlook. “The warning letters cite impermissible health claims used to market the products, as well as CBD’s invalid status as a dietary ingredient due to its presence in two drug applications currently under consideration.”

The FDA just criminalized one of the most miraculous healing medicines in the world by handing it over to Big Pharma

In other words, the FDA just handed Big Pharma an absolute monopoly over CBDs (hemp oil extract) by ridiculously claiming such natural products are “adulterated” with molecules (CBDs) that the FDA says might one day become a drug.

“Drugs,” according to the FDA, are substances that are proven to treat, prevent or cure a disease, and thus the FDA’s own logic admits that CBDs must be able to treat, prevent or cure diseases, otherwise they would be useless as “drugs”.

But when a dietary supplement company makes the same claim, they are hit with aggressive warning letters from the FDA, threatening to shut them down, confiscate their products and seek criminal prosecution of the company executives.

This is how the FDA can instantly criminalize any vitamin or plant extract

Do you see how this twisted, corrupt regulatory tactic can allow the FDA to instantly criminalize any dietary supplement, vitamin, herb or plant extract?

Vitamin D, for example, could be outlawed by the FDA announcing that it has granted “Investigational New Drug application (IND)” status to any drug company studying vitamin D.

Using this same corrupt, mafia-style tactic, the FDA could essentially “outlaw” resveratrol or even vitamin C, denying Americans the right to access safe, affordable, natural substances that are routinely found in nature.

  1. Shame on the FascistDrugAssociation. They are reprehensible in their relentless pursuit of money at the cost of good health and citizen’s lives! Our Creator put the medicinal plants on earth for us to use for our benefit cost free.

  2. I don’t know how many times I have to say this. I’m damn near 59 years old. I’ve seen and tasted the damage and destruction done by the ILLEGALITY of Marijuana in these so called, United States. NO one has the right to say what you can and cannot put in your body. Yet, millions have been jailed for doing just that. Use Weed IF you want. It is NOT harmful- in fact it’s the greatest plant ever gifted to Man. The Users of Society will go to all lengths to keep this and ANYTHING they want out of our reach. I’ve used Cannabis for over 46 years. I’m still here safe, sane and free. To HELL with the DEA and the FBI and the FDA and the rest. Don’t you get it? They are NOT here for us…we are here for them. And all they want? Is our money. Wake up.

  3. Unbelievable of course if you check out your congressman senators and representatives you will find most receive six figures for there campaign so their going to do anything they can to keep that money coming even if it means the death of thousands of children cancer sufferer and hiv, and aids victims who cares they make six figures and we pay all their benifits.The drug companies pay all their campaign fees so know surprise there Fed’s raiding pot festivals in state where just legalize trump coming at you plus deporting hope your all happy

  4. Is anyone going to take them to court over this?..it’s like they’re a Mob..they need to legalize it all (cannabis)..and i also think it goes hand in hand with prisons for profit..to put more people away..

  5. This is ridiculous, crony capitalists using the State for their benefit. Progressive States and companies must fight this in court.

  6. Right now this is how I see this, I think the current Obama FDA administrator is trying to make a quick move here against cannabis on behalf of big Pharma before Trump can get his own new FDA director in.

  7. Ban the FDA. They are all obviously criminals so send them a letter warning them if they continue they will be arrested for damages to humans who benefit from it.

  8. The FDA are worse than the drug lords!! They are despicable!! They get paid millions, billions of dollars at our expense!! They have to be stopped!!!?

  9. There are still many companies shipping Hemp Extract Oil that has CBD in them. They just can’t market the products as a dietary supplement. At least that is what FDA is saying but they have not stopped anyone. In fact GW Pharma recently said they would play nice and only look at specific diseases they are in clinical trial on and they would NOT be trying to shut down CBd industry.
    Water Soluble CBD Capsules can still be purchased at site like http://www.BioCBDPlus.com and they will, like most other companies, move to a label that doesn’t mention CBD.

  10. Here’s how you handle that problem.
    Pay no attention to the FDA by not recognizing their authority.
    Hold their authority to the 9th amendment of the constitution which reads:
    “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
    Those rights include but are not limited to : Freedom, Liberty, the pursuit of happiness, The right of self preservation and last but not least free will.
    The FDA and any other government agency or authority only has as much authority as you allow anyway despite their claims otherwise.
    I find it ridiculous to think that they could possibly throw everyone in jail.

  11. The Feds have 13 patents dating back to 1942! Google government patents Marijuana for a wealth of knowledge on how beneficial MJ is. Screw big pharma!

  12. Lol… if you believe then another human being has the right to do this… Then you are totally a zombified and government controlled! In my life experience they have no right to tell me to do or not to do anything. That is a universal law. You better get to know the universal laws because they’re breaking every one of them and you’re allowing them to do it against you. You are a god for your life! You create your own life! THEY have your brain in slavery. That’s what the word government means= control by way of the Mind.

  13. This is a VERY one sided view of the scenario. CBD stops the production of certain enzymes in the liver. Without these enzymes our bodies can not rid it’s self of most over the counter medications. It needs these REAL studies to bring out real medicines and answers. Stop defending your stupid tinctures and allow research and medicines to be made!!!

  14. we MUST push FDA et al to correctly reclassify #marijuana, and for #cannabisindustry to unilaterally speak correctly. Despite imo some sources’ misleading use of vocabulary, it is a plant, a plant that is made up of naturally occurring elemental organic constituents, NOT a drug and NOT made of compounds: it is not a chemical drug, it is not made up of extracted or synthesized compounds, and it should never have drugs/chemicals/poisons/preservatives/pharmaceutical compounds added to it. While cannabinoids are compound molecules, they are not compounded, as in synthesized, like a pharmaceutical drug, so using the term compounds in reference to naturally occurring compound molecules, and using the term drug for a plant, is misleading.

  15. There will never be a way to FIGHT BIG PHARMA. I have inoperable back pain. I have a Pace Maker / Defibrillator, therefore unable to have and use a (tens unit). To use a tens unit, would change the settings for my Pace Maker / Defibrillator and would then most likely die. It is the Pace Maker / Defibrillator that keeps my heart beating in the proper rhythm. And because my heart is so weak, it prevents me from having the surgery that my back needs to repair it in order to relieve the pain. If I had the use of the marijuana oil or marijuana capsules, I could most probably live pain free. I would be able to go shopping and not have to use an electric cart or wheel chair. My feet would not fall asleep and have so much pain in my legs that I would collapse on to the floor. I could get down on the floor and play with my Great Grandson. I could have a normal life. BIG PHARMA, leave the growth, harvesting and sale of MARIJUANA alone. Many states have legalized the sale and use of it, so, let it be.
