It appears the DEA has decided to sneak cannabinoids onto the schedule 1 Controlled Substance Act. Cannabinoids are now being targeted by the government.
Of course, it would be targetted at some point. Cannabinoid extracts can be used to help with many diseases. This change has been pushed through a piece of legislation called “Establishment of a New Drug Code for Marihuana Extract“. This new ‘rule’ has been hidden because the DEA decided to use the obsolete spelling, substituting the ‘j’ with an ‘h’. This is why when you search for it, it is not as easy to find online.
This is obviously another attempt by the government and big pharma to keep us ill. Is there no end to the madness? By implementing this ‘rule’ the DEA is covering all of the different extracts.
(Federal Register 90194)
“This listing includes (unless specifically excepted or unless listed in another schedule) any material, compound, mixture, or preparation, which contains any quantity of the substance, or which contains any of its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers that are possible within the specific chemical designation. For practical purposes, all extracts that contain CBD will also contain at least small amounts of other cannabinoids. However, if it were possible to produce from the cannabis plant an extract that contained only CBD and no other cannabinoids, such an extract would fall within the new drug code 7350.”
DEA Administrator Chuck Rosenberg justifies the rule by quoting outdated international treaties:
“The United Nations Conventions on international drug control treats extracts from the cannabis plant somewhat differently than marihuana or tetrahydrocannabinols. The creation of a new drug code in the DEA regulations for marihuana extracts will allow for more appropriate accounting of such materials consistent with treaty provisions.
The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961 (“Single Convention”) and the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances (“Psychotropic Convention”) provide for the international control of marihuana constituents. Many of the CSA’s provisions were drafted to comply with these Conventions.”
This awful new ‘rule’ is going to be damning to farmers who had hoped to sell their CBD extracts across state lines. Many of these extracts come from industrial hemp which is nothing like normal marijuana. The rule being set into place does not distinguish between the two and bans them from crossing state lines no matter which kind they are.
Cannabinoids are highly beneficial and can do many great things for our health. It is a shame that the government has allowed their greed to run this deep. Conventional medical treatment has not been helping very many people in the past few years while cannabis and cannabinoids have been working wonders. It appears big pharma will stop at nothing to remove anything remotely healing.
Cannabinoid extracts can do things like:
- Reduce nausea
- Combat psychosis disorders
- Suppress seizures
- Fight off inflammatory disorders
- Fight tumors and cancer cells
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce depression
- Aid sleep
- Promote bone growth
- Stimulate appetite
- Treat psoriasis
- Reduce risk of artery blockage
- Reduce blood sugar levels
- Treat fungal infections
