The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has sent warning letters to multiple companies involved in the distribution of products containing cannabidiol (CBD).
fdaThe FDA sent warning letters today to four CBD-related companies claiming them to be making unsubstantiated claims “related to more than 25 different products spanning multiple product webpages, online stores and social media websites”. The companies are Natural Alchemist (California), Greenroads Health (Florida), That’s Natural! Marketing & Consulting (Colorado), and Stanley Brothers Social Enterprises LLC (also Colorado).
“As part of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s ongoing efforts to protect consumers from health fraud, the agency today issued warning letters to four companies illegally selling products online that claim to prevent, diagnose, treat, or cure cancer without evidence to support these outcomes”, states a Wednesday press release. “Selling these unapproved products with unsubstantiated therapeutic claims is not only a violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, but also can put patients at risk as these products have not been proven to be safe or effective. The deceptive marketing of unproven treatments may keep some patients from accessing appropriate, recognized therapies to treat serious and even fatal diseases.”
