The CBD Health Debate

It is a good idea to do your own research, and take advice from your primary care physician before making a decision about using products with CBD, including hemp flower. It is important to consider any bold health claims with skepticism. For example, the website of a fly by night company offering CBD oil as cure for aging, diabetes, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis – would not be a credible source of information. Generally speaking, the best sources are: a) Medical Doctors; b) Peer-reviewed studies published in legitimate scholarly journals; c) Official U.S. Government publications. Research articles written by scientists can be hard to understand without a medical or scientific background, and many of them are behind a paywall. Below is a short list of articles from the internet that are helpful in educating oneself about whether CBD has health benefits.
