According to a preliminary report released by the World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, natural CBD is safe, well tolerated, and does not produce adverse public health effects. The cannabinoid is “not associated with abuse potential” and does not lead to physical dependence. The authors similarly discuss CBD’s therapeutic efficacy on epilepsy, and the preliminary evidence behind its use for Alzheimer’s, cancer, Parkinson’s, and psychosis.
