Do you know what's in CBD products? I-Team tests them out in lab

CBD is now legal with no prescription necessary, but it's also largely unregulated, which means consumers don't always know what they're getting.

CBD is derived from cannabis or hemp, but it contains very little or no THC so it does not make you high. Some people said it helps with a wide range of ailments from pain to anxiety.

"Everyone is just trying to jump on the bandwagon. You have grocery stores, gas stations, liquor stores and corner stores that are selling this stuff," said Nicholas Patrick, owner of Embrace CBD Wellness Center in Glen Burnie.

Many retailers are selling CBD products, but no one is regulating them.

"That's absolutely true. At this current moment, there are no (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) guidelines, no FDA restrictions. They have a very loose enforcement policy. So, when you're buying CBD, you could be taking a potentially harmful product," Patrick said.

I've been in terrible pain with a knee injury for 10 years next month. So much pain I have to decide if I need to go to the bathroom or if I can wait to limp in there. TMI.

Doctors won't do anything so finally changed insurance but too much a baby to set up an appointment. Hubby got me some CBD stuff per the health store owner - two in pill form and one ointment. Nothing worked. An M&M would have done better than the pills. A glass of water would have been just as effective as the ointment but I religiously used the jar up over 3+ months just in case I was wrong. I wasn't. Gave hubby the last week's worth of pills when he had a very bad fall and they did nothing for him either.

Save your money.

It is amazing to me how the country has totally demonized tobacco and also decided that a bunch of other stuff is [shrug] perfectly fine to use.

It’s a big change.

Central Business District.

Unless OP is talking about something else. In which case he should define his terms.

I am convinced the whole industry is a big hoax and unless something is done, its legalization has pretty much has sealed the fate of California’s downfall as a state.

I am so sorry to hear about your knee. I pray you find the right people and resources to treat you. There are some great chiropractors, physio-therapists, and acupuncture/acupressurists our there. Hopefully a careful dosage of pain medicine combined with something topically applied will also help. Praying!

reading about how you tried using the whole container (over time) made me think about the radio pitch for Relief Factor. Larry Elder, Dennis Prager, and others sing its praises but they say it doesn’t work for everyone. I have never tried it. The radio pitch says take x # every day for 2 weeks to see if there is any improvement.

and I assume CBD products are like “vitamin C” unregulated and your mileage may vary with different suppliers.

A CENTRAL BUSINESS District (CBD) is the nucleus or downtown of an urban area that contains the main concentration of commercial land use, with the highest percentage of retail shops, offices, and services such as banking and finance.

Now, what products are you talking about?

Office supplies?

Copiers?

What was the strength of the CBD pills you took?

Maybe your health store owner recommended something that's too weak for your level of pain. It's possible he recommended the CBD equivalent to aspirin since you're new to it.

From the article: "Many retailers are selling CBD products, but no one is regulating them."

I searched online and could find many instances of Central Business District, but nothing for Central Business District product.

"Decapitation" -- LOL! I've heard of powerful cures, but that takes the cake.

http://cbdforthepeople.com “Grandaddy Purps” Vape cartridge enabled a friend to cut her prescription Oxycontin use by over 80% for the last year.

She is still with us as a result.

Get the real, uncut, natural stuff and there is a “there” there.
