Current Pharmaceutical Design published an online article stating that
cannabidiol is safe for humans to take orally. It is a non-psychotropic
cannabis plant which is well tolerated by humans. It is known as "CBD."
There was significant research which led up to the report. Kings College
in London evaluated effects of both THC and CBD and compared it to placebo
in 16 people. While the oral administration of 10 mg of THC was linked
to various physiological and behavioral effects, including increased heart
rate and sedation, there was no such link with those taking 600 mg of CBD.
The conclusion was that, "There were no differences between CBD and
placebo on any symptomatic, physiological variable." They also stated
that, "CBD has proven to be safe and well tolerated." Similar
conclusions were made last year by Current Drug Safety.
Furthermore, there has been research which points out that CBD possesses
a variety of therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic,
anti-epileptic, anti-cancer, and bone-stimulating properties.
However, Cannabidiol is illegal under federal law as it is an organic component
of cannabis, and is classified as a schedule I prohibited substance.
As we know, Under State law, many states allow marijuana. Kansas is not
such a state. If you are caught with in possession of MJ or CBD in
Kansas, you should consult a Kansas
criminal defense lawyer immediately. Sadly, studies like this likely won't be used by your
drug defense attorney in court as it likely wouldn't be deemed relevant
by the court.
