HMG Offers Physician Recommended, Highest Quality Certified CBD
At Hansa Medical Groupe, may patients have inquired about CBD treatment as an alternative to their current pain or medical needs.
Is CBD Legal?
Yes. The federal government recognizes two forms of the plant Cannabis sativa: hemp and marijuana. Hemp is the least processed form of the cannabis plant and contains high levels of cannabidiol, or CBD – the compound in cannabis known for its medicinal properties – and traces of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis that causes a ‘high’.
In 2018, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (AKA the Farm Bill) legalized CBD that is derived from hemp and contains no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight. CBD that comes from the marijuana plant remains illegal under the Controlled Substances Act since the Drug Enforcement Agency classifies marijuana as a Schedule I Drug.
HMG practices in Illinois where CBD is legal. We also practice in Indiana where CBD is legal for medical use with limited THC content.
How do we find approved CBD products?
HMG is diligent about checking product labels and manufacturers’ websites for any products we distribute. With federal and local cannabis regulations still being worked out, finding CBD products that are legal and approved requires a bit of leg-work.
What does HMG do before approving a CBD product for distribution?
Origin of hemp: We look for products made from hemp grown in the United States. Hemp grown overseas are at the mercy of that country’s production rules and regulations – or lack thereof.
Certificate of Analysis: This document, also called a COA, shows the results of independent lab testing that checks for things like potency (see below) and contaminants. The batch number on the COA should match the number on the product’s label or packaging. Some states make it easy to find this information.
For instance, Indiana requires that all CBD products include a QR code on their label that allows users to download the COA to their phone.
Testing Methods: When reading the COA, make sure the lab doing the testing meets “ISO 17025” standards. The testing methods should also have been validated by one of three national regulatory organizations; The Association of Official Agricultural Chemists, the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, or the U.S. Pharmacopeia.
Potency: The COA should also confirm that the product contains the amount of CBD and THC listed on its label – both in total and by dose.
