Beware of Over the Counter CBD Products

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a Schedule 1 controlled substance. This makes it illegal to buy or sell CBD products in the state of Texas except under the active oversight of a registered physician in the Texas Compassionate Use Program. Still, there are undeniably many CBD products being produced and sold throughout the state. And unfortunately, some of these products are of variable and sometimes questionable quality and safety. In the interest of protecting fellow Texans from potential harm, we offer this checklist of questions to ask when considering CBD products.
