WHO Issues Preliminary Report – No Health Risks or Abuse Potential For CBD

Last month, our very own Raul Elizalde went to the World Health Organization’s 39th annual meeting of the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) last November 6th-10th. Just like you, we’ve been waiting for the World Health Organization to release its statement on the substances in review.

At their annual meeting, cannabidiol was reviewed alongside substances such as Tramadol, Pregabalin, Etizolam, Fentanyl, Carfentanil, and many other prescribed drugs. The full list can be found here.

The World Health Organization (WHO) report found no adverse health outcomes associated with cannabidiol use. Instead they see several medical applications despite current policies for cannabidiol.

Score one for Team Green

The WHO report goes on to state, “To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” This is long-time knowledge held by many inside the CBD community, anecdotally, yet has been the backbone for the growth of this arm inside the cannabis industry.

The report goes on to state there are multiple research studies showing the positive effects of cannabidiol for conditions that impact the quality of life for those who suffer. This is great news for anyone who wants to try CBD without fear of the side effects from THC. The WHO report also noted,”CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.”
