The present invention relates generally to a new food supplement formulation, generally designed to promote overall health that contains cannabinoids, commonly referred to as CBD oil. This oil is derived from hemp and represents a non-tobacco product that has shown significant promise as an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-mutagen, and anti-cancer compound. Furthermore, the product is claimed to improve brain function and wellness, including reduced seizures, and reduce the risk of some forms of cancer. While the claims are based on significant scientific and clinical evidence, the subject is highly controversial in that there are also a substantial number of persons, including professional health care providers, traditional medical practitioners, and parents of children suffering from seizures, for whom the use of CBD has been effective without yielding any side effects.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have placed the USPTO mark on CBD oil with the symbol CBD. The scope of claims is defined by the claims. The claims may describe a method of treating a patient with a condition and/or effecting a cure for that condition, but such claims do not necessarily describe an exclusive method of effecting a cure, provided that the treatment is used in accordance with the claims. Such exclusions are based on the fact that the claims do not identify an exclusive source of CBD, and the mere fact that the claims relate to a source rather than an exclusive source does not preclude the likelihood of a patent being filed based on such information. It should be noted that in prior patents that include references to CBD, the reference was made merely to a source of CBD rather than a method of treating a specific disease or effecting a cure.
It is important when reviewing CBD oil claims to consider that the use of CBD in dietary supplements and cosmetic product formulations has been widely and historically widespread, and that scientific studies have provided substantial evidence supporting the health benefits of this oil. In addition, most of the CBD supplements reviewed and discussed in medical journals are formulated from plant sources rather than animal products. As with other types of dietary supplements, it is important to remember that dietary supplements can be used in place of other substances in any therapeutic application. A good example of this is a prescription treatment for insomnia, which should also contain an extract from the cannabis plant (skunk extract). It should be noted that the FDA has not approved the use of CBD as a remedy for insomnia.
There are many companies that manufacture CBD dietary supplements and other cosmetic products containing CBD. Most of these companies are highly regulated. To make sure that companies manufacture quality formulations using high-quality ingredients, manufacturers must adhere to rigorous standards. All ingredients in CBD dietary supplements and other cosmetic products should meet the most stringent manufacturing safety standards to be considered safe. The manufacturers should also work closely with qualified professionals to ensure the highest purity possible.
Another factor to consider when reviewing CBD dietary supplement formulation is to understand the basic nature of the supplement. As mentioned above, different forms are available and each form has its own unique list of ingredients. In general most supplements contain three basic ingredients: CBD, preservatives, and colorants. It is important to review the list of ingredients in the product to determine if the product is appropriate for you. Some supplements that have high standards of quality and purity have a very low cost per serving. This is an excellent way to determine if a CBD nutritional supplement formulation is right for you. To be sure, you should also be aware of the fact that not all forms of CBD are created equal. For instance, some forms of CBD oil are pure CBD, while others are very low in CBD and include other contaminants that are not necessarily healthy. In addition, the CBD is a rather tricky substance to identify and quantify.
