The CBD Explosion – Keeping Out of Harm’s Way

July 15, 2020

Since the legalization of hemp, the sale of cannabidiol (CBD) product has exploded everywhere, from pharmacies to gas stations. Consumers can find CBD in an ever-growing variety of products, from an FDA-approved drug to dietary supplements and topicals, but are they all legal? Science has shown there are numerous pharmacological effects on many physiological systems in the human body, but what about the potential for interacting with other drugs? What do regulatory bodies, such as the boards of pharmacy, and pharmacists need to know to protect the public from harm? Experts on CBD provided webinar attendees the facts on CBD pharmacology, as well as the regulatory landscape in the United States and whether this explosion can be controlled.
