FDA: 2016 Warning Letters and Test Results for Cannabidiol-Related Products


2016 Warning Letters and Test Results for Cannabidiol-Related Products

In February 2016, FDA issued eight warning letters to firms that market unapproved new drugs that allegedly contain cannabidiol (CBD). FDA had previously issued six such letters in February 2015. FDA has tested these products, and many were found to not contain the levels of CBD they claimed to contain. It is important to note that these products are not approved by FDA for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease. Consumers should beware purchasing and using any such products.

The links to the Warning Letters and the test results for the CBD-related products are below:
