CBD is a cannabinoid found in cannabis, A.K.A. marijuana. It has been approved by the FDA to treat Dravet’s syndrome and other seizure disorders, and is currently used in over-the-counter form by millions of Americans.
Unlike THC, CBD does not result in a high, but it does cause mild relaxation. Many Americans turn to CBD hoping to get the benefits of marijuana without the high, so it has become quite a fad.
The point of this post isn’t to debate whether or not CBD is beneficial, but to show the enormous disparity in reasoning between the FDA’s stance on the experimental mRNA “vaccines,” and the non-psychoactive isolate of a thousands-of-years old plant that has literally been used safely by billions of humans throughout millennia.
The most obvious disparity is that we have trouble agreeing on whether cannabis has EVER been the sole cause of death for a user, while the mRNA jabs are already KNOWN to have killed thousands, if not millions worldwide through blood clots, cardiomyopathy, miscarriages, and other adverse reactions.
The FDA cites three reasons for their continued enforcement against CBD:
1) CBD can cause liver injury (they did not cite the infamous 2019 study)
2) CBD can affect how other drugs work (not disputed by this author)
3) Male reproductive toxicity has been reported (not addressed here)
The FDA does not cite the liver harm study, but we will: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6539990/
They found liver damage after delivering doses equivalent to 1300mg CBD per day. This is much higher than a normal person would take, but this author agrees. If you find anything to be toxic at levels that can potentially be consumed, it warrants further study.
So, the FDA is still advising caution regarding CBD, which has been used safely by millions, if not billions across the world, and which has yet to cause a single undisputed death.
How does this compare to their attitude about the vaccines?
And for any who argue that the benefits don’t outweigh the risks for CBD vs. the COVID vaccines, please understand that CBD has been approved to treat seizures, which are estimated to kill roughly 50,000 people in the U.S. alone per year. It’s obvious that the benefits outweigh the risks. Mere common sense says so considering the lack of deaths caused by CBD. https://theepilepsynetwork.com/facts-and-statistics/
It’s NOT obvious that the benefits of the COVID vaccine, if there are any, outweigh the risks of the disease. Indeed, there are a growing list of horrific injuries caused by this therapeutic that is being marketed as a vaccine. https://vaers.hhs.gov/data.html Yet, studies continue to show the waning efficacy of the jab while COVID presented virtually no harm to children and young adults…till the jabs were rolled out.
It’s just another example of their bald hypocrisy, and agenda-driven approach to medicine.
Food for thought.
