Cannabidiol (CBD) According to the FDA, cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid prepared from the Cannabis sativa L. plant and is a new molecular entity. It is structurally unrelated to other drugs approved for the treatment of seizures. CBD is currently a Schedule I drug. The exact mechanism of the anticonvulsant effect of CBD is unknown but does not appear to involve an interaction with cannabinoid receptors. As reported by Medical News Today, CBD is not psychoactive, unlike THC. Thus, it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. Moreover, it does appear to produce significant changes in the body and has been found to have numerous medical benefits.
FDA Safety Advantages The FDA approved a purified form of the drug cannabidiol (CBD) on June 25, 2018. This CBD approval establishes ingredients derived from marijuana can indeed demonstrate sound therapies thereby, providing new options for patients. "The approval is a milestone in medical advances and we recognize that many states allow the manufacture and sale of topical CBD products for adult consumers, however many are intended to be drank or eaten. This makes it a food product and our concern is food safety," said Hunter Young, Founder and CEO, Food Safety Solutions Consultants. "We are able to offer expertise to manufacturers, processors, packagers, and distributors of CBD ingestible products to become and remain compliant to Good Manufacturing Practices production, particularly those designed for food use. Our experts determine safe processing methods, testing of in-process and finished product solutions, appropriate potency and concentration with the aid of lab analysis, lethality guides for cooking and to quantify bacteria death rates in cooking processes, ideal moisture parameters, and fundamental Good Manufacturing Practices for handling to reduce the likelihood of hazards in formulating and selling CBD products. Compliance with the state requirements is essential and we help manufacturers determine how to do that."
Deploying Assurance and Safety Evaluation by the FDA generates benefit versus risk. The FDA has taken recent actions against companies distributing unapproved CBD products. In states where the product is legal to be ingested, food poisoning comes in many forms but is in general caused by the human consumption of toxins released as a by-product of bacterial growth within a food. "To limit bacterial growth it is imperative that handling, processing, storage and transportation of food is carried out correctly," said Young. "Food Safety Solutions Consultants provide food safety training for employees, inspection of the facility for good handling practices and development of food manufacturing controls such as batch processing methods and temperature controls to help producers take the next step towards manufacturing CBD products that are safe and effective."
