CBD (cannabidiol) is having a moment~ it is in everything from cocktails to hand creams. However, there is very little science to support the use of cannabis-derived products for general consumer usage. Even more, for parents who may be considering CBD for their child, it is a struggle to navigate the maze of CBD products and understand how online or in-store versions differ from an FDA-approved prescription product. What is particularly concerning is that not all CBD is made equal as online/in-store CBD products are not regulated or monitored the way that FDA-approved medicines are, and sometimes you don’t know what you are getting with non-FDA-approved CBD. There was even a study published in JAMA [jamanetwork.com] which found that almost 70-percent of all CBD products sold online did not contain the amount of CBD stated on the package.
