The popularity of CBD continues to grow globally, contributing to the resumption of a healthy dialogue about cannabis.
Cannabidiol is just one of many compounds produced by cannabis sativa, the most famous of which is the psychoactive THC.
Unlike its sibling, CBD does not add to the buzz in consumers.
Today, this cannabinoid is found in a wide variety of products from capsules and oils to gummies, chocolate and skin care products.
Although CBD is non-mind-altering, safe and well-tolerated according to the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD is still prohibited from sale to anyone under the age of 18.
Hemp & CBD Products
Medical cannabis has come a long and difficult journey in recent years.
Medkon is currently recommended by the National Institute for Advanced Studies in Health and Medical Services (NICE) for a range of disorders and diseases.
A growing number of private clinics are available to prescribe hemp therapy.
The change in the status of cannabis in 2018 allowed it to be used for medical purposes.
Two high-profile cases of childhood illnesses with rare forms of difficult-to-treat epilepsy contributed significantly to this reform.
The parents of Billy Caldwell and Alfie Dingley discovered that the cannabis-based medicine proved to be an effective medicine for their children.
Categorical age restrictions
Although CBD is added to many foods that can attract children, such as gummy bears, chocolate and soda fruit drinks, the British Cannabis Trade Association has recommended not selling them to anyone under the age of 18.
In addition to the listed “baby” foods, CBD is sold as part of “adult” products, including beer, spirits (rum, gin, vodka) and for vaping.
While CBD companies may claim (and may be right) that their product is safe for children, reputable brands are not going to sell it to people under the age of 18.
There are surprisingly few guidelines for parents who think CBD may be beneficial for their child.
Apparently, this decision should be made carefully and deliberately, based on the circumstances.
