"This is the key difference between products that rely on CBD and what’s called CBD isolate — the raw, plant-only material. CBD isolate is pure CBD, without the natural additions found in the cannabis plant. Pharmaceutical products that list CBD as the active ingredient replace the natural additives, like terpenes, with chemical substitutions, which are designed to change the look, texture, or shelf life of the product. But in cutting out the natural benefits of cannabis, some drug makers making their products harmful."

The argument which says because cannabis is “dangerous” it must be controlled and regulated is false. This argument does not deal honestly with the evidence and fails properly to advance the cause of reducing the harms of cannabis and cannabis policy. Healthcare records and statistics prove if cannabis is 'dangerous', then peanuts are 'very dangerous'. The real reason cannabis must be regulated is because prohibition is dangerous.

"In his book, 'Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence', reporter and novelist Alex Berenson attempts to stir up public fear over cannabis legalization. This sort of alarmism has been around since the earliest days of prohibition. Rather than contributing to thoughtful debate, his work is a polemic based on a deeply inaccurate misreading of science."

"The European Commission (EC) is fighting to reclassify CBD as a “novel food”, meaning that cannabidiol and hemp-derived food supplements will soon be illegal to sell throughout the entire continent. Although this isn’t an official ruling, a final opinion on this amendment is coming next month, in March 2019. The European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) is considering allowing a novel food application for up to 130 mg of CBD in food supplements for adult use. Should it pass, products are expected to be available within 7 months."
