Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many active ingredients of the marijuana plant, but it is also derived from the hemp plant, which is considered a cousin of marijuana plants.
The Food and Drug Administration allowed researchers to begin studying the health benefits of CBD in late 2015.
It has been found effective in treating childhood epilepsy, and in some cases, CBD was found to stop seizures altogether.
In addition, CBD is also used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.

The federal government is moving slowly when it comes to regulating the testing and purity of CBD products. Some states, and the hemp industry itself, have begun regulating CBD products to ensure their safety.
CBD oil products are not tested on a regular basis and are not subject to regulations that require testing. A third-party testing company recently reported that many supplements advertised as CBD products have little, or no CBD in them at all.
Consumer Reports writes that in 2017, some 30 people were treated in Salt Lake City emergency rooms for seizures, agitation, confusion and loss of consciousness after taking a pill labeled Yolo CBD. Testing revealed that the pills contained no CBD, but instead a dangerous synthetic cannabinoid.
In recent years, supplements on the market have tested positive for inactive ingredients that might cause an allergic reaction in some people. Rice powder, asparagus, houseplants, soybeans and other fillers have all been found in unregulated supplements. These fillers might be found in CBD-based products as well, including gummies, capsules, edibles and liquids.
The supplement industry has a history of facing allegations that it mislabels the primary ingredients in their supplements.
For example, in 2015 the New York attorney general’s office released results of tests that were performed on several herbal supplements sold by GNC, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart and found that a majority of them did not contain any of the herbs that were advertised on the labels, according to The New York Times.
In place of the actual supplement, the products contained fillers such as rice powder, asparagus, houseplants, and other ingredients that contained possible allergens. The same may be true of several False Labeled CBD products and supplements.
