CBD and The Law

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

In February 1997, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a report detailing its potential medical uses for marijuana and the most productive research pathways. The report highlighted five areas of medical care that he felt were most appropriate.

1. Encourages appetite and relieves cachexia (general and life-threatening weakening of the body in case of cancer and other serious diseases).

2. Reduces chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.

3. Reduces eye pressure.

4. An analgesic.

5. Also effective in neurological and movement disorders.


CBD rich oil

In 2009, a handful of CBD-rich cannabis strains were discovered fortunate in northern California, where certified patients can legally get medical marijuana.

This is how an important laboratory experiment began with the involvement of CBD-rich medical cannabis. The nation's (American) attitude to cannabis has changed with the medical use of the whole plant's CBD-rich oil. It is no longer a question of whether or not medical marijuana is working - it is only now that we can make the most of this opportunity. But most health experts have little experience in the subject. For this reason, Project CBD has made a CBD user guide for healers who have key questions about cannabidiol and cannabis therapies.


Seven US states have legalized the use of cannabis

Cannabis at the federal level (nationally) is still illegal, although recreational use is already legal in four states - Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Colorado - plus the Washington Columbia District (D.C.).



Californians voted in favor of proposal 64. on the legalization of cannabis. This is the end of cannabis banning in America's largest state. A regulated system of authorized cannabis retailing is also allowed under the measure.



Question 2 on the legalization of cannabis was voted in Nevada. Question 2 was almost entirely based on Colorado's 64th Amendment, which was voted in 2012. The measure allows those over the age of 21 to own an ounce of cannabis. It also allows them to grow six plants and allow a controlled system of regulated cannabis retail stores. The initiative clearly enables for non-residential to legally buy and use cannabis.





Maine’s voters have approved Question 1, which legalizes cannabis. The initiative legalizes the possession and individual cultivation of cannabis over the age of 21. The law also legalizes cannabis retail outlets supplied by cannabis production centers. The State Agriculture and Forestry Office will regulate the cultivation and marketing of hemp as an agricultural product.(10% sales tax on cannabis)



By voting on Question 4, Massachusetts became the 5th State in the US where it ended the cannabis ban after Washington, Colorado, Alaska, and Oregon. A regulated system of authorized cannabis retailing is also allowed under the measure.



The majority of Florida voters have approved Amendment 2. Following its entry into force, the amendment to the Constitution has legalized the use of cannabis as a medicine, including the system of cannabis pharmacies.


With the approval of Amendment 2, Florida became the first southern state to fully legalize medical cannabis. The law allows for the possession and use of cannabis for medical purposes for those who have the advice of their physician. The initiative will create a regulated pharmacy system that can be used by any authorized patient.



Case 6 legitimizes the medical use of cannabis and its distribution in licensed stores. The state and local governments may impose taxes on medical cannabis, and some of these tax revenues will be recycled into an education and health project by law.


North Dakota

Measure 5 allows for the possession and use of cannabis for medical purposes for those with medical recommendations. The initiative allows patients to “buy medical cannabis from strictly regulated public benefit centers that have been licensed to produce and sell a limited amount of cannabis from the state”. Those who live more than 40 miles from such a center, they can grow in their own homes.

This list of diseases for which someone can use medical cannabis under Measure 5:
