CBD Toxicity Study Guiding FDA Regulation to Kick Off this July

A study protocol, being developed by clinical research company ValidCare, will commence this July and determine any potential liver toxicity and the safety of CBD. The study—with generous support from several top CBD brands—is being interpreted as a critical stepping stone as it will help to guide the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on CBD regulation.

ValidCare will investigate whether or not CBD demonstrates any hepatotoxicity or effects on the liver.

What happens to weed that gets seized by the cops?

Cannabis seizures are unlikely to inspire too many positive thoughts in the minds of weed enthusiasts, but Thailand’s decision to use almost 22 tonnes of confiscated weed to help advance related medical research isn’t likely to be met with protests among too many stoners.
