The United Nations is trying to figure out how to categorize cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive and medically beneficial cannabinoid contained in cannabis. And UN officials, through the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), are asking for your help.

The FDA declared that ‘CBD has been shown to be beneficial.’ Now the agency needs your comments to back it up.

FDA officials put out a call for comments in this morning’s Federal Register, seeking information about CBD and how the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO) should designate it under the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances. In doing so, the FDA acknowledged the ‘beneficial’ effects CBD has shown in patients with neurological disorders.

All those who have information on, or experience with, the use of CBD as a healing substance are encouraged to comment at this federal website. Sept. 13 is the deadline for public comment, and no input will be considered after that date.

    I have chronic migraines, cervico- genic migraines,chronic neck and back pain, spinal stenosis, bulging discs and neuropathy and fibromyalgia.I take Tramadol hcl er 200 mg every morning, and I have norco for break through. I have migraines and pain everyday.CBD ( hemp) oil has lessened my pain some and helped decrease an excruciating migraine down to tolerable; without going to the er or without horrible side effects. I found a migraine preventative that works real good for me. Topamax , but I can’t stay on it long cause it causes me to get bad kidney stones.
