With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, cannabidiol (CBD) was removed from the schedule of controlled substances and has gained high popularity in the general public for the self-treatment of several conditions such as pain, anxiety, and sleep disorders. However, evidence is extremely limited for efficacy. Recent studies have been published that demonstrate inaccurate labeling of concentrations of over-the-counter products, raising significant safety concerns. With CBD products available on the internet, in convenience stores, and in pharmacies, pharmacists need to be educated and prepared to counsel patients on the safe and efficacious use of CBD-containing products..
