Do Doctors Approve Of CBD?

If you’ve heard of CBD, you’ve probably wondered about the research and science behind the rapid growing popularity of the product. We did the research for you, so you don’t have to. Keep reading to see if doctors approve of CBD and its benefits. Keep in mind, and different professionals might have various opinions but this is overall the response we found from experts regarding CBD.

It’s important to note that the US Food and Drug Administration don’t regulate the supplement industry, and CBD companies have to be careful to not make any health claims in their posts, products and pages. There is no proof to claim that CBD works in treating anxiety and other conditions. However, CBD can affect each person differently, so we recommend trying it for yourself and seeing how it makes you specifically feel.  

Moreover, make sure that whether you chose Revital Outdoors or another CBD product, you’re checking reviews, their process, and other important information on the company and their products to ensure that you’re making the best possible decision for your health.

Upon research, we found that many doctors recommend tracking your progress once you start taking CBD on a regular basis. This will help track your mood, energy levels, and overall well being. The only way to know if CBD is having any effect on you, is to keep a symptom diary. Many studies show that you should see the benefits of CBD within five days. CBD does show that the more consistently you take it, the better you’ll feel.  

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) , CBD oil is safe. Most doctors even give some acceptance to the guidance by the WHO. In 2018, WHO affirmed that CBD was safe and fine for humans and animals. In their findings, they also clarified that it was not associated with any negative public health effects. There is also introductory evidence showing that CBD may also be a useful treatment for several other medical conditions.  

Unlike THC, CBD does not have the intoxicating effects. CBD produces no ‘high effect’ and is legal at the Federal level due to the 2018 Farm Bill. There are only three states who have not yet made CBD legal at the state level including: Idaho, Iowa, and South Dakota.) However, Federal Law defines CBD as products containing less than 0.3% THC. Research shows that THC levels when they’re around the upwards of 20%, product psychoactive effects. Take note that not all CBD products are completely THC free. Broad-spectrum and isolate CBD products have no traceable amounts of CBD, according to the labs. However, full-spectrum CBD oil can produce trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3%.  

As stated by the US Food and Drug Administration, the FDA is working to answer questions about the science, safety, and quality of products containing cannabis-derived compounds, particularly CBD. Now, the only FDA-approved CBD medication is Epidiolex, which is used to treat certain types of seizures. While this is the single FDA-approved product currently, they are looking at CBD in more depth.  

Do your research and consult with your doctor 

All in all, there needs to be more research on CBD. Doctors like data and with the lack of data regarding CBD thus far, it’s difficult to know exactly what they think. CBD research is still in the early stages. Scientists want to see more research done about the long-term effects of CBD. We’ve seen many articles where doctors state that they are cautious of recommending CBD before more research is done. While patients may come into their offices and rave about CBD and what it’s done for them personally, research is still ongoing and there hasn’t been one affirmative answer on the benefits or harm.   

While CBD looks promising, it’s always best to consult with your doctor if you have any underlying health condition. This is mainly due to the fact that there are no long-term studies on the effects CBD can have on the body. Additionally, there have been no studies on children yet.   

While research is still in the early stages, many scientists concur that CBD could play a part in our wellness and help maintain homeostasis. It’s important to note that every patient does not have the same experience with CBD. That’s why it’s best to consult with your physician before trying any therapies, including CBD.
