What Is CBD? Here’s What Marylanders Need To Know

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — CBD or cannabidiol can be found all around Maryland. Sometimes it’s infused candy, oil, bath salts or in products marketed as dietary supplements.

In fact, there are nearly 100 dispensaries up and running across Maryland that distribute and sell medical marijuana and CBD products.

There are also companies that sell CBD oil, CBD-infused gummies or foods, and other health-based products, often used to quell anxiety or help someone sleep.

CBD products come in a variety of forms.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a nonintoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp that is sometimes used medicinally. It’s also often infused into certain food products or oils.

The products sold in these stores are wholesome hemp properties THC-free products sourced from hemp. Purchasing CBD products is federally legal as long as it doesn’t contain more than 0.3 percent of THC, according to the Food & Drug Administration.

The FDA, however, does warn the public they believe some of these products make “questionable health promises about CBD” and there are no other FDA-approved drug products that contain CBD.

Unlike marijuana-based products, hemp-derived CBD oil within the FDA’s requirements is fully legal in Maryland.

Under the 2018 Farm Bill, industrial hemp and hemp-derived cannabis extracts are allowed in all 50 states unless the in-state laws say otherwise.

What’s The Difference?

CBD oils or products that have less than 0.3 percent of THC are commonly used to help people with anxiety and various health issues.

So, when the FDA says that CBD products aren’t considered legal, they are referring to CBD derived from marijuana. It is still illegal to market that type of CBD by adding it to food or labeling it as a dietary supplement, according to the FDA.

There is only one federally legal product in the U.S. derived from marijuana, a prescription drug product to treat two rare, severe forms of epilepsy, according to the FDA.

Where Can I Try It Out Legally?

Buying CBD oil online is easier than it has been in years past, but there are also local shops with CBD-infused products and medical marijuana products if you have a prescription.

Some popular local shops, according to Yelp, include CBD Supply MD in Towson; Innerzen, a vitamins and supplements shop in Hampden; Embrace CBD Wellness Center in Glen Burnie and SoBotanical in Federal Hill, to name the top few.

Essential oil companies have gotten in on the CBD mania, including Young Living, a popular wellness company partnered with Nature’s Ultra.

They’ll offer uses including quelling your anxiety, helping people sleep easier and even to help your body when working out, often mixing in other scents to make them more appealing to users. Some of these products are even often used on people’s pets to help them as well.

Companies like these market the CBD-infused oils as health-based, though the FDA believes these types of products are marketed with unproven medical claims.

The FDA does say CBD has the potential to harm those who use it, adding that while they have not approved any other CBD products other than the one that treats epilepsy- there is very limited available information about CBD, including its effects on the body.

The risks of certain effects the FDA does warn about include liver injury, increased adverse effects or decreased effects of other medications if they interact, changes in testicular size, inhibition of sperm growth and development, as well as decreased circulating testosterone.

They said they are still actively working to learn more about what happens when people access CBD through foods, CBD-infused skin creams and other products regularly. They also are still working to determine how it affects animals, the elderly, children, adolescents, as well as pregnant and lactating women.

CBD or cannabidiol can be found all around Maryland. Sometimes it's infused candy, oil, bath salts or in products marketed as dietary supplements.

Yes, cannabidiol (CBD) oil is legal. In many ways, CBD laws in Maryland predate many of the most important provisions of the 2018 Farm Bill, which effectively legalized the production of hemp plants and hemp-derived products. Most notably, in 2015, state lawmakers passed a measure that established a legal difference between marijuana plants, which contain more than 0.3% THC, and “industrial hemp” plants, which contain only trace amounts of THC and can legally be grown, harvested, processed, and sold in Maryland. Importantly, this distinction opened the door to legally selling and buying CBD and CBD products derived from low-THC hemp plants before the 2018 Farm Bill was passed.

With this critical distinction in place, Maryland has established itself as a relatively friendly state for CBD and CBD oil.

What is CBD?

THC and CBD are the cannabis plant’s two most prevalent cannabinoids. Generally speaking, THC produces marijuana’s intoxicating effects while CBD does not, but both are thought to provide numerous therapeutic and medicinal qualities.

To date, researchers have identified a number of potential health benefits linked to CBD, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-anxiety, and anti-seizure properties. This non-intoxicating cannabinoid has shown promise in treating pain; epilepsy and other seizure disorders; mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis; and many other medical conditions.

Why is CBD sometimes illegal?

Even though most industrial hemp plants don’t produce enough THC to cause intoxication, all types of cannabis, including hemp, were considered illegal under the 1970 Federal Controlled Substances Act. The legislation swept all cannabis under Schedule 1, which defined cannabis as a substance with a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use, and a likelihood for addiction.

The 2018 Farm Bill, which was signed by President Donald Trump on Dec. 20, 2018, legalized industrial hemp cultivation and effectively created a legal divide between marijuana and hemp. Under the federal law, hemp is cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, and marijuana is cannabis that contains more than 0.3% THC.

To meet federal legal criteria, CBD oil must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC. Photo by: Gina Coleman/Weedmaps

Image lightbox

Hemp-derived CBD was thus descheduled by the bill, but CBD that is derived from marijuana plants with more than 0.3% THC is still considered federally illegal because marijuana is categorized as a Schedule 1 substance. While hemp is now considered an agricultural commodity, it still must be produced and sold under regulations that implement the bill. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has yet to implement these regulations.

The 2018 Farm Bill also granted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) power to regulate CBD’s labeling, therapeutic claims, and its use as a food additive. Despite the passage of the Farm Bill, the FDA has taken the stance that even hemp-derived CBD may not be added to food and beverages, nor marketed as dietary supplements.

While the FDA has begun a process of reevaluating its stance on such CBD products, it has yet to revise its rules or specifically regulate CBD products, leading to further confusion. The FDA has been strict when it comes to health claims and content that could be construed as medical advice about CBD.

The federal legislation thus still highly regulates the production and sale of hemp, and its cannabinoids, including CBD. The Farm Bill also provides that states may regulate and even prohibit CBD cultivation and commerce. In addition, states may attempt to regulate CBD products including food, beverage, dietary supplement, and cosmetic products, independently of the FDA finalizing its views on such products.

Maryland CBD laws

State laws regarding CBD oil in Maryland align with federal laws established under the 2018 Farm Bill.

In 2015, state lawmakers passed HB 803, which laid out an important new definition of “industrial hemp,” in contrast to “marijuana,” which this law defined as plants containing more than 0.3% THC by weight. HB 803 defined “industrial hemp” as plants with less than 0.3% THC by weight.

HB 803 also made it legal to grow, possess, sell, or buy industrial hemp in the state. Another important provision of HB 803 is that it also legalized also any part of the hemp plant, including CBD. As per this law, a person must register with the state before legally planting, growing, harvesting, or processing industrial hemp plants or any products from these plants.

Following HB 803, Maryland lawmakers passed H B 443 in 2016. This bill broadened the legal cultivation and production of hemp plants by allowing educational institutions to grow plants for research purposes. This law was later expanded in 2018 with H B 698, which allowed industrial hemp grown or cultivated under the state’s hemp program to be sold, distributed, transported, marketed, and processed both in the state or outside of the state.

In Maryland, it is currently legal to purchase, possess, and consume CBD and CBD products as long as they are derived from plants that meet the legal definition of industrial hemp. Medical marijuana is legal for Maryland residents and non-residents who have a qualifying medical condition and register in Maryland’s medical marijuana program. These patients are allowed to purchase, possess, and consume products that contain both CBD and THC.

Maryland CBD possession limits

There are currently no limits to how much CBD a person can purchase, possess, or consume as long as the product is derived from an industrial hemp plant.

For registered medical marijuana patients, there is also no limit specific to CBD. Instead, patients with a medical marijuana card are limited to 120 grams, or 4 ounces, of medical cannabis; or 36 grams, or 1.3 ounces, of concentrates in any 30-day period unless a doctor recommends more, in which case the state may increase an individual patient’s limits.

Where to buy CBD in Maryland

You can purchase CBD either online or in stores.

When it comes to online sales, CBD is most frequently found on brand-specific websites. On these sites you can generally find important product details including what form the CBD is in (e.g., oil, capsules, topicals, tincture, etc.), how much CBD the product contains, what other chemicals or ingredients are in the product, and more. After making your purchase, expect shipping to take anywhere from 3-5 business days to as long as 2 weeks.

In Maryland, you can also purchase CBD and CBD products in several different types of stores including smoke shops, convenience stores, health food stores, or shops that specialize exclusively in CBD products. Additionally, CVS announced in March 2019 that it would begin selling CBD topicals in Maryland.

When purchasing from a shop that offers CBD, especially if it’s a CBD specialist, you can typically get in-person help and expertise from an employee. Explain what you’re looking for and your reasons for consuming CBD and they can point you in the right direction.

How to read CBD labels and packaging

Most reputable CBD producers will typically include the following information on their CBD product labels:

  • Amount of active CBD per serving
  • Supplement Fact panel, including other ingredients
  • Net weight
  • Manufacturer or distributor name
  • Suggested use
  • Full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate
  • Batch or date code

One of the most important things to pay attention to is whether a CBD product is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate.

Full spectrum means that the CBD has been extracted from a hemp plant along with all other chemicals in the plant, including terpenes and whatever amounts of THC the plant may have produced. Consuming full-spectrum CBD may yield better results from the entourage effect, a phenomenon in which the entire mixture of cannabinoids and terpenes work together and complement one another inside your body.

Broad spectrum means that the product contains CBD and terpenes, but has undergone additional processes to strip out THC.

Finally, CBD isolate is a product that has gone through more intensive processing to remove everything except for CBD. Consuming isolate may produce different effects than full or broad spectrum CBD, as these products do not produce the entourage effect.

CBD edibles vs. CBD oil

Which CBD product is right for me? It’s a question we get A LOT. For those who decide to take CBD orally, the choice often comes down to edibles or tinctures. So what’s the difference? For one, how quickly and how long you’ll feel the effects of the CBD. Edibles take longer to kick in (between 30 minutes to 2 hours), and the effects typically last longer. That’s because edibles are processed through your digestive system, and the CBD is metabolized through your liver, which takes longer and provides a bit more of a time-released effect. With tinctures taken sublingually (held under the tongue for 30-90 seconds), the CBD enters your bloodstream directly and almost immediately (similar to smoking CBD or THC flower)—with full effects within 20 minutes. If you’re wondering which might be right for you, we advise experimenting with both to see how each method affects you.

  • What are CBD gummies?

CBD gummies are just what they sound like—gummy candies than contain CBD. It sounds simple, but choosing the right brand of CBD gummy can be anything but. Because gummy production at scale can be difficult, and mass production of gummies involves expensive machinery, most CBD gummies are white-labeled, meaning they are purchased wholesale and then marked up in price. Worse, some CBD gummy brands purchase commercially made candy (without CBD) and spray the CBD onto the surface of the candy. This isn’t ideal for obvious reasons—there can be issues with consistency, and the CBD can “rub off” during bottling, transport, etc. At Half Day CBD, we make our gummies in a state-of-the-art, FDA-certified facility. Our experienced candy-makers have perfected the recipes and flavors—always infused with CBD, never sprayed. We make them in small batches to ensure freshness, store them in a temperature-controlled facility and get them to you quickly to ensure they’re delicious and effective.

CBD gummies vs. CBD oil—what’s the difference?

Edibles and oils are arguably two of the most popular forms of CBD, so it’s no surprise than many people wonder if they should use CBD oil or CBD gummies. The answer depends on several factors. CBD oil, when taken sublingually (under the tongue) typically takes full effect within 5-20 minutes, where as edibles such as gummies can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours. This is because edibles are metabolized through your digestive system and liver before entering your bloodstream, where as sublingual application of oil enters your bloodstream directly via the capillaries under your tongue and in your cheeks. For this same reason, the effects of CBD edibles tend to last longer than oils. Absorption (also known as bioavailability) of CBD is slightly higher when taken sublingually vs. metabolized via the digestive system. Finally, because of the body absorbs CBD differently during sublingual oil application vs. digestion (eating a gummy, for instance), some CBD users report slightly different effects/feelings.

Can CBD gummies help with anxiety?

Many people have questions about how CBD can help with anxiety. While Half Day CBD gummies are not intended to to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, many of our customers say they use CBD gummies to help with daily stressors and bring a feeling of calm/balance. As we say, it’s not about what you feel—it’s about what you don’t feel.

Will CBD gummies help with pain?

Half Day CBD gummies are not intended to to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. However, according to Harvard Health, two recent studies have shown than CBD “may offer an option for treating different types of chronic pain.” While more human trials are needed to substantiate this evidence, many of our customers say they use gummies to help with general relief and recovery.

Will CBD gummies help with sleep?

While Half Day CBD gummies are not intended to to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, some customers use it before bed and say it provides a sense of calm. Because CBD gummies tend to last longer than other methods of CBD consumption, many enjoy taking them at night, an hour or so before bed.

Can I use CBD gummies for focus?

Stress, anxiety, pain and sleeplessness can all interfere with your ability to focus and be productive. While Half Day CBD is not intended to to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, many Half Day customers say CBD gummies provide a sense of balance and calm they feel helps them improve daily focus.

Are CBD gummies addictive?

While Half Day CBD gummies are not intended to diagnose, treat. cure or prevent any disease, many users seek out CBD as an alternative to potentially addictive medications. A 2018 report from the World Health Organization asserts than CBD does not cause physical dependence and is “not associated with abuse potential.”

Farm fresh, and we're not talking about the berries. Our strawberry CBD gummies have great flavor AND are made with American-grown hemp-derived isolate—lab-tested for quality and potency.

Mango / Blackberry / Watermelon.. taste amazing… I buy These in bulk because I give then to my 5 year old every morning with his breakfast. This has helped him in so many ways from ADHD, temperament, he hasnt been sick since we started him on these.
** Now in regards to my review… I was Originally introduced to ( Flower of Life-CBD gummies on a cruise. I was feeling motion sickness, nausea and awful. I was given a pack of Mango gummies and my friend told me to try one, that I will feel better…. I wasn’t a believer and honestly thought no way.. one little gummy bear won’t make me feel better. BUT within 20 min I felt like a whole different person. I had 4 gummies in the pack left and I took them the rest of the cruise. I’m telling you, I got NO head change, no high feeling besides feeling better and not sick. I’m so grateful for the work and efforts of Flower of Life. I’m forever grateful.

I have to say I’m very pleased. I have been using CBD oils for over a year now but have only just switched to Platinum CBD after a reccommendation from a family member. I bought a couple of oils and lots of gummies. The oils are great but the gummies are just so much better and super convenient and I need convenient.

Unfortunately for me CBD doesn’t do much for my pains once the pains have started but it helps tremendously with my muscle issues, not 100% but so much more than mainstream medication does and it allows me to do a lot more physically demanding things than I would otherwise be able to as I find it quite debilitating without that help.

Great service from Connor, thanks.

They work brilliant with helping me…

They work brilliant with helping me muscle pain, help me chill out and they help with my ADHD which stops me from sleeping and shutting off

Love Love Love the gummy bears

Love Love Love the gummy bears! They’ve honestly been a god send, I have adhd and are constantly on edge and these have helped so much with my sleep, restless brain and anxiety! Will certainly be ordering again! Thankyou platinum! x

I bought this product to help with a wide range of iss

I bought this product to help with chronic wisdom tooth pain plus a metal plate that needs removing, anxiety, stress sleeplessness and a few other problems. I had been taking in excess of 30 painkillers perday whilst waiting for operation date to come through I wanted to try the gummies to see if they would help a range of my problems and I can honestly say they have. I’m now only taking 15 to 17 painkillers, I’m sleeping better my anxiety and stress have greatly decreased. I thought it was just a placebo affect so I stopped taking them for a few days and I definitely won’t be doing that again. They really do help and I will continue to order from this company.

cbd gum golf

What gum does Tiger Woods chew during competition?

Tiger Woods’ ascension to the top of the golf world (again) has pointed many cameras back in his direction. Most of the time, you might notice, the man is chomping on some gum.

Woods chewed gum all throughout his 2019 Masters victory, and he might be onto something with it. Various studies have shown greater brain stimulation can occur when chewing gum.

Is Woods chomping CBD gum? That industry has exploded in recent years. Numerous golfers have dabbled in CBD oil through a chewing product, and some are even sponsored by CBD companies.

According to Eldrick, the gum is some type of Trident gum. Woods did a recent GOLFTV Q&A with fan-submitted questions, and when asked about the gum, he gave a less-than-convincing answer.

“Joey (LaCava, Woods’ caddie) has this, um, orange, I think, I believe it’s Trident,” Woods says to his longtime friend Rob McNamara. “I ended up getting hooked on it too because I like the sugar and the flavor. So yeah, that’s what Joey and I end up chewing to wake ourselves up.”

You can check out Woods’ answer to that below, as well as some other questions like “Who will be the best player of the 2020 decade?”

Tiger Woods has been seen chewing gum during competition throughout his recent rise. What type of gum is it?

Is this golf’s magic potion?

As Andrew Stephens describes it, he was “burning the candle at both ends.” The 2018 Kentucky PGA Section champion was battling through a partially torn ligament in his left hand, all while trying to maintain a teaching academy, buy his local driving range and, as he says, “raise the 2040 Masters champion” with his wife, teaching partner and range co-owner, Sara. “It was an extremely stressful time,” he says. “Definitely the anxiety level was up.” So when Stephens came across a booth at January’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando touting a product that seemed to solve all his problems, he was intrigued.

As it turns out, what he found might be the hottest product in golf this year. In fact, it might be the hottest product in any industry this year. Cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound extracted from cannabis plants, is finding its way into everything from droppers of ingestible oils and topical creams to pizza and milkshakes. Its claims of curative powers seem to run the gamut of diseases and maladies, from Alzheimer’s and cancer to first-tee jitters and golfer’s elbow.

Stephens, 34, started taking CBD oil in the form of a tincture, using a dropper full of extract every morning, just like a daily dose of vitamins.

“It definitely feels like it’s got a bit of a calming factor,” he says. “Whether that’s real or a placebo, I’m not sure. But I feel like it’s lowering anxiousness, especially before a round of golf. You don’t get quite as amped up, the butterflies aren’t quite as powerful as they sometimes are. It’s subtle. I’m also trying to monitor the wrist to see if taking it sort of dulls some of the pain or makes it a little easier to swing as hard as I have to. If it’s a natural pain-reliever, that’s probably better than putting a bunch of pills in your body.”

And there is the argument and the uncertainty for CBD. The fundamental issue is that because the compound is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, its claims have not been fully sussed out. There is research—gobs of it, in fact—but not much clarity. A public hearing by the FDA on the questions surrounding the bursting CBD industry in late May drew more than 100 speakers, caution and enthusiasm trading the microphone back and forth through every five-minute presentation. Even acting FDA commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless acknowledges that the federal government is overwhelmed, that there already are “significant gaps” in the FDA’s understanding of all aspects of CBD’s features and usages.

“While we have seen an explosion of interest in products containing CBD, there is still much that we don’t know. . . . There are lots of questions we will need to answer to ensure that the FDA is taking an appropriate, well-informed, and science-based approach to the regulation of cannabis and cannabis derivatives, including CBD.”

Does it get you high? Is it legal

Before we go farther, a brief science lesson. First, CBD is not marijuana. Rather, it is one of many cannabinoids or compounds that can be extracted from the cannabis plants that include the closely related marijuana and hemp plants. CBD and THC are the two compounds that get the most attention when it comes to cannabis research. THC is the psychoactive element that produces marijuana’s high. CBD is not psychoactive, and according to a World Health Organization report, unlike THC, CBD “is generally well tolerated, with a good safety profile. . . . [and] is not associated with abuse potential.”

Unlike marijuana, which is not a legal substance in most states, hemp-derived CBD got what amounted to a federal endorsement with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. That legislation legalized the production of hemp, which previously had fallen under a 1937 law that essentially prohibited the production of all cannabis plants. (In recent years, 10 states have legalized marijuana for recreational use, and most others allow it with a prescription.)

Under the Farm Bill’s new guidelines, as long as the cannabis plant has less than 0.3 percent of the psychoactive compound THC, it’s much easier to grow, sell and possess.

“The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill was the final step in our company’s process to go to market,” says John Hawkins, CEO of Pure Swing CBD, a line of CBD products aimed specifically at golfers.

After the new legislation, all sorts of CBD companies and brands are flowing with cash. A cannabis industry group estimates the CBD business could reach $22 billion in the next three years as it moves beyond the realm of alternative remedies and into mainstream products and food additives.

CBD companies already have secured endorsement contracts with PGA Tour players, and rumors swirled at the Masters that Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods were using CBD products, including tincture and chewing gum. Though video surfaced of Mickelson taking a swig from a dropper mid-round, neither have indicated they use CBD products, and representatives for both players did not respond to requests for comment in early June.

Regardless, CBD is not merely a fringe product being whispered about in golf circles but nearly mainstream. Ben & Jerry’s has promised its customers that a CBD-infused ice-cream flavor is coming. In May, CBD company Medterra announced a deal with Worldwide Golf to sell its products in golf ’s second-largest retail chain. CBD products even are sold in the golf shop at Muirfield Village, and head pro Larry Dornisch says he has reordered the supply twice already this season.

Jason Fryia, who owns the Golf Exchange retail chain of five stores in the Greater Cincinnati and Lexington, Ky., region, says he was “blown away” by the response to a CBD question on the company’s Facebook page.

He says 81 percent of respondents were interested in buying CBD in April, and by May he decided to stock the Medterra products in his stores.

“We could post an image of a new 2020 Pro V1 and ask, ‘Are you interested in trying this?’ and I’m not sure we would get 81 percent of people to say ‘Yes,’ and that’s the highest market share, most universally loved golf product there is,” Fryia says. “I just don’t think there’s anything else right now that has that sort of enthusiasm surrounding it.”

Fryia admits the price of $55 a bottle for a month’s supply might be a hurdle, but he also plans to bring in a CBD chewing gum that will cost customers $10 for a pack of eight. “As a golf product, it’s unique in that it’s something everybody who plays can use, and it’s literally a consumable, so they’ll go through it the way they would golf balls,” Fryia says. “Plus, it’s unique because it seems that it’s a product they’re already buying, but not in golf shops. It could be a little like selling beer at golf courses, and that’s worked out pretty well.”

Anecdotal evidence versus science

CBD’s penetration as a retail product entails some distinct challenges for marketers. Those include not only explaining how CBD might be beneficial, but also allaying the confusion about what consumers are getting and how they should be using it.

At the moment, CBD companies have to walk a fine line that includes some stern fine print from the FDA. Technically, CBD cannot be used as a food additive in restaurants, although that stipulation hasn’t exactly deterred the practice. Still, states and municipalities are formulating rules while the FDA considers how far it will reach into CBD-infused menus. In a Washington Post story, one store owner in Colorado said adding CBD to his smoothies “makes everybody better . . . I tell people, ‘CBD—it’s a natural Tylenol and Xanax mixed together.’”

Every standalone CBD product must carry an FDA warning: “These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.” The agency has issued dozens of warning letters to companies promoting CBD products since 2015.

Still, CBD mania proceeds at an almost pandemic pace. The reasons are largely anecdotal, not the clinical verification you might see from experimental drug therapies. There is no doubt that CBD has real documented promise when it comes to treating specific childhood seizure disorders. CBD oil-based alternative treatments for a rare childhood epilepsy known as Dravet Syndrome spawned a cottage industry.

The FDA approved Epidiolex last year after controlled trials showed it significantly reduced or eliminated seizures in children with previously drug-resistant epileptic seizures. That made it the first FDA-approved, plant-derived cannabinoid medicine. A typical regimen costs $32,500 a year.

Its proven success in this specific case is compelling, but no doctor is handing out prescriptions for Epidiolex to help you battle the yips or loosen your frozen shoulder—certainly not at that price. But CBD also has been studied for more common maladies.

Those include an experiment involving improved public speaking, as well as animal studies evaluating CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties.

Currently, there are more than 150 ongoing studies of CBD’s effects, says Dr. J.H. Atkinson, co-director of the University of California’s Center for Medical Cannabis Research. But the picture isn’t entirely clear.

“There is very little evidence of efficacy as far as its use as an anxiolytic [anti-anxiety agent] or for pain and muscles aches,” Atkinson says, but he notes there are studies that show CBD acting on parts of the brain tied to emotions and the serotonin receptors thought to be involved in anxiety.

“How this might translate to ‘performance anxiety’ under competitive conditions is unknown,” he says, but “again, the potential here is certainly worth investigating.”

Just because interest in CBD is fueled by anecdotal claims doesn’t mean those claims aren’t valid. Rather, those with expertise in the field wish for more knowledge, a difficult commodity given that up until late last year, cannabidiol was a Schedule 1 drug and obtaining it for research purposes and getting that research funded was as problematic as funding marijuana research.

If CBD were only available as the high-priced Epidiolex, it likely would never have become the hot topic it now is for consumers, says Kent Hutchison, professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of Colorado and founder of the Center for Research and Education Addressing Cannabis and Health. He has received funding from the National Institutes of Health to study the effects of CBD and served on a National Academy of Science committee that produced a 2016 report on the health effects of cannabis.

“We’re at the very beginning; we really don’t know yet,” Hutchison says. “I think in the long run this could be useful to people, just not in all the ways people are currently marketing it for.” Hutchison points out that past clinical trials of CBD sometimes have used much higher doses than what is often available at retail.
For example, in the study that involved reduced anxiety in public speaking, patients took 600 milligrams of CBD right before their speeches. That’s nearly a month’s supply in some CBD oil tinctures.

Hutchison is particularly wary of problems with CBD’s retail dosage and Labeling. Given that CBD products are not only in golf shops but supermarkets, drugstores and gas stations, the buyer-beware aspect of this phenomenon can be overwhelming. Though CBD doesn’t appear to have any significant side effects at this point, it’s not entirely clear that what you’re getting is what’s on the label. And because CBD isn’t regulated by the FDA, there are no standards or guarantees. Depending on what you purchase, the possibility exists that there could be enough THC in it to have you fail an employer’s drug test. Conversely, any product could tout any amount of CBD it wants on its label, and it might not have any CBD in it at all. At the FDA’s public hearing in May, Dr. Rosemary Mazanet, chief scientific officer for the medical marijuana company Columbia Care, testified that as much as 69 percent of CBD products in one study were mislabeled.

That can put the onus on an uninformed or unsuspecting consumer, Hutchison says, and that’s not an ideal scenario. “The reason that’s happening is because the federal government has been outside the equation for so long,” he says. “They abdicated their role in informing the public, and the companies sort of took over.”

Given the complexity, the acceleration and the constantly evolving nature of the CBD industry (it’s in everything from medicated patches to $20 chocolate bars), the government has much catching up to do. What might be more likely is some form of self-regulation. There is the beginning of a certification process from an industry group called the U.S. Hemp Authority that will review and verify CBD products for how they are produced and marketed, although that group has not yet been fully embraced by all levels of the CBD industry.

“If you’re going to try it, you should give it the best possible try, which is to find a reputable company to where you can have some confidence that what they say is in the bottle is actually in the bottle,” Hutchison says.

Of course, if consumers are looking for the FDA to somehow stabilize the CBD marketing rocket ship, consider this: It took the organization and the medical community nearly 45 years before Epidiolex got to market, despite evidence as early as 1973 that CBD might have a positive effect on seizures. That’s one drug with clear clinical results to treat a disease that affects only one in 16,000 children. By comparison, the current CBD industry is targeting nearly every man, woman and child—even pets. By one estimate, in the past three years alone, more than 1,500 CBD products have come to market, all essentially unregulated by the FDA.

The CBD-based opportunities for golfers already seem more vast, variably sourced and as inscrutable as trying to find the right golf ball. And yet there appear to be mountains of anecdotal evidence that something at least intriguing if not remarkable is at work with these compounds.

But companies have to be careful in what they say CBD is doing or risk drawing those warning letters from the FDA. Jay Hartenbach is founder and CEO of Medterra, which sells CBD in tinctures, gel capsules and creams. He’s a user and a golfer.

“I’ll be careful in what we can talk about, but yes, I think golf and CBD are a natural fit,” he says, specifically referring to using a topical cream to loosen up sore and stiff muscles and joints. “With CBD having the potential to be a really strong anti-inflammatory, I think it really can work well with all ages as they either get ready for their next round or practice session or recover from the round they finished. Certainly golfers who are struggling with those issues should be strongly considering CBD.”

There is a sense that CBD is seen as a critical asset for members of golf ’s aging population, possibly keeping them in the game longer. And if they stay in the game longer, they continue to spend money on their games.

“CBD might not grow the game, but is it possible it could help the game from shrink ing and losing players?” says Fryia, the retailer. “I don’t know, but it’s something worth talking about. A guy who just gets fed up with pain or frustration—who knows what this might do for him?”

Laura Baldwin thinks she has seen what CBD can do. Baldwin, a physical therapist, developed BestBall CBD working with her teaching-pro husband, Robbie, and his father, Robert. The two men run the golf operation at Winchester Country Club, a half-hour outside Lexington, Ky., where the elder Baldwin has been the head pro for nearly four decades. When an aging membership began complaining about aches and pains, the Baldwins turned to Laura to see if physical therapy had any answers.

“There are only so many stretches and so many exercises you can give someone, and if they don’t help, then they’re just not going to help, no matter how many times they do them,” she says. What was helping was a CBD formula developed from hemp grown in their home state, which has become an epicenter for hemp-derived CBD oil and CBD oil processing. Baldwin says she can check in on her hemp crop in nearby Paris, Ky., whenever she wants.

The CBD effect on Winchester’s members was dramatic, Baldwin says. Not only were golfers feeling better, the golf course saw increases in rounds played, cart revenue and golf-shop business. She says that if you would have asked members over the age of 60 about their general level of pain a year ago, most would have rated it at five out of 10 or worse. “Now, I would say it’s three or less,” she says, talking about 80-year-olds spending two hours on the range like a scene out of the 1980s fountain-of-youth movie “Cocoon.”

“I can see that the excitement has returned,” Baldwin says. “They’re getting to do something that they don’t have to dread anymore. Before, they would still love it and go out and play, but then they’d be miserable. They’re not having those same feelings anymore. There’s just the same, familiar, pure joy of being out there with their buddies. It’s good for their mental health, it’s good for their emotional health. I’m not saying that the product is changing their emotional health. It’s just allowing their love of the game to return.”

Al Morris, president and CEO of Worldwide Golf, sees the same opportunity from a business standpoint for his main Roger Dunn store in California and Worldwide’s extensive online retail business. The word-of-mouth effect Medterra shared with him was convincing, Morris says.

“We read countless testimonials they had received from consumers who swear by the products,” Morris says, noting that making the product free of THC was vitally important. “Many of which specifically referenced their ability to play golf better or return to playing the game due to pain relief. Obviously we make money selling it, and if it’s an unchartered revenue stream for us, why wouldn’t we try it? We carry aids for backs, knees and elbows. We sell sunscreen and sunglasses. We offer SPF sleeves and long-sleeve shirts for sun protection. It is my hope that these CBD products turn into a category such as these that help the golfer feel better and
play more golf.”

There still is the matter of educating a consumer that is being bombarded with CBD products at every turn, including new deals that have them showing up on the shelves of Walgreens and CVS, as well as in the fliers you get in the mail from Bed Bath & Beyond. CBD is at a kind of tipping point, but not necessarily one that leads to it becoming a staple like vitamins or aspirin.

“We get really excited about first of all having a compound that is coming from a naturally derived source as opposed to some thing that’s synthetic in a world where there are so many synthetic solutions out there, and at the same time having no side effects,” Medterra’s Hartenbach says. “But I agree a level of caution is essential because what we do have is this wonderful compound. If we as an industry get overly aggressive in how we market it, and we don’t do the necessary research, then there is this chance that this industry goes to the wayside. That’s why we have lots of CBD companies doing safety studies. We have to be careful because this has the potential to be a huge industry and help a lot of people, but with that comes a lot of responsibility.”

Clearly, the industry needs some kind of oversight in terms of purity, dosage and labeling, as well as clear restraint on outlandish or unsubstantiated claims. Ben Cort, author of Weed, Inc., has been a leading critic cautioning against the overcommercialization of cannabis products. He thinks there’s a place for non-THC, hemp-derived CBD, but he urges regulators and consumers to view CBD with a more discerning eye.
“As long as people are looking at a separated-out part of CBD, you can have a good conversation about a good homeopathic remedy that’s got some real potential,” Cort says, noting that it is not an easy process to get pure CBD oil and that the lack of oversight can be especially dangerous when you’re talking about the potential for the presence of pesticides and heavy metals in imported CBD oil.

“When you have a product that’s celebrity-endorsed yet non-FDA-approved, we really run the risk of creating a massive excitement and culture around this thing where we don’t know what people are using, nor do we know a lot of the long-term effects,” Cort says. “The safe answer is that anything that’s stamped ‘FDA’ has consumer protections in it, which means we know exactly what it is. But buyer beware. If somebody tells you something that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

The CBD industry is making big claims about what it might do to enhance your life (and your game)

Glaucoma, Marijuana & CBD: Facts & Myths

Table of Contents
  • The Search for Lower Intraocular Pressure
  • Can Medical Marijuana or CBD Help Glaucoma Symptoms?
  • The Science of Marijuana’s Impact on Glaucoma
  • Medical Studies
  • Eye Doctors Understand

Glaucoma involves high intraocular pressure and damage to the optic nerve. The most common type of glaucoma, open-angle, is a chronic and progressive disease that can be tough to manage. As medical marijuana becomes more popular, more people are interested in the suggestion that marijuana or CBD oil can help this eye condition. (Learn More)

Medical professionals agree that no form of medical marijuana, especially CBD products, helps to manage glaucoma symptoms. In fact, some types of medical marijuana can make symptoms worse and cause further eye damage. (Learn More)

The few medical studies conducted on marijuana and intraocular pressure found that THC, not CBD, temporarily lowers IOP. But this result does not last long enough to make it a good medical treatment. And marijuana can be addictive. (Learn More)

Further medical studies have shown that CBD in medical marijuana can slightly raise intraocular pressure, and marijuana decreases blood flow. Both of these things can further damage the optic nerve. (Learn More)

The best way to treat glaucoma is to follow your eye doctor’s treatment plan. (Learn More)

Glaucoma & Marijuana: The Search for Lower Intraocular Pressure

The term glaucoma covers several eye diseases that involve high fluid pressure and damage to the ocular nerve, leading to vision loss.

Open-angle glaucoma is the most common type. This is a progressive, chronic disease that leads to tunnel vision and eventual blindness if it is not treated. Other types of glaucoma may develop suddenly, and some even constitute a medical emergency and require immediate surgery.

Most people who develop glaucoma will not notice symptoms. An optometrist or ophthalmologist will diagnose high fluid pressure during your regular eye exam and conduct further tests to measure any potential vision loss. Then, your eye doctor will recommend medical treatment like eye drops or surgery to reduce your vision loss. While you cannot recover lost vision, you can slow the progression of open-angle glaucoma.

Eye specialists continually search for better treatments to slow the progression of chronic forms of glaucoma. The first study examining marijuana’s impact on glaucoma occurred in 1971. It found a 30 percent overall decrease in eye pressure among participants who smoked a marijuana cigarette an hour before undergoing an eye exam.

Since then, this and related studies have been used to promote now-legal medical marijuana like cannabidiol (CBD) to treat glaucoma. However, this treatment is not recommended by medical professionals.

Can Medical Marijuana or CBD Help Glaucoma Symptoms?

Medical professionals agree that marijuana, including CBD, is not an effective treatment for glaucoma. This means that, even if medical marijuana is legal in your state, your optometrist or ophthalmologist will not prescribe it as a medical treatment for this condition.

First, glaucoma must be managed 24 hours a day, and no form of marijuana is a practical treatment for ongoing management of any condition. The drug’s effects only last a few hours, while many chronic conditions require medication that lasts at least half the day.

Additionally, there is little medical research into how marijuana affects glaucoma. The research that does exist suggests that the drug does not help eye pressure for long, and it can be detrimental to the condition over time.

Finally, it is well known that marijuana is an addictive substance. While it may not be more harmful than alcohol, it is a drug that causes intoxication, impaired judgment, and changes in brain chemistry and structure that impact the rest of your life.

The Science of Marijuana’s Impact on Glaucoma

While there were some studies in the 1970s and 1980s that found marijuana could lower intraocular pressure, the real association between the drug and glaucoma treatment occurred due to a landmark medical marijuana court case in 1974.

A man named Robert Randall, who was 26 years old with high intraocular pressure and poorly treated glaucoma (unusual for his age) reported that the halos he saw around lights, which were a symptom of his eye condition, decreased when he smoked marijuana. He began to grow his own pot so he would have access to “medicine” that seemed to work for him. Soon, he faced federal criminal charges for growing the illegal plant, but he was able to persuade the federal judge that he needed marijuana as a medical treatment.

California became the first state to legalize marijuana in any form, in 1996. Glaucoma treatment was cited as one of the potential conditions that medical marijuana could help.

Although CBD has more recently been associated with medical marijuana, the chemical that works on intraocular pressure is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This chemical has been shown to lower intraocular pressure by 60 to 65 percent in anyone, including people who have glaucoma. One study found that, over the course of marijuana’s primary effects on the body, IOP lowered 25 percent overall. This could seem to help glaucoma patients, but it is not a long-term solution due how THC is metabolized.

THC’s peak effects in the body last for three to four hours. For any medical marijuana treatment to be effective for glaucoma, you would need to take a dose several times a day. Not only is this disruptive to work, school, or a regular daily routine, it also means you will be consistently intoxicated, which can be very dangerous. Marijuana, especially types high in THC, is addictive.

Short-term effects of marijuana include:

  • Altered senses, like seeing brighter colors.
  • Altered sense of time.
  • Changes in mood.
  • Impaired body movement.
  • Difficulty thinking clearly.
  • Problems with memory.
  • Trouble solving problems.
  • Hallucinations, delusions, and even psychosis, when used at very high doses.
  • Paranoia or anxiety.

When used on a long-term basis, marijuana changes your brain’s development and alters structures in the brain associated with the reward system. Some medical studies have found that consistent, long-term abuse of this drug lowers intelligence and cognitive abilities, leads to a significant decline in general knowledge, and can lead to memory problems.

Mood problems can also arise. You may become more anxious or aggressive when you are not intoxicated.

Additionally, marijuana has been associated with eye problems, including:

  • Conjunctival hyperemia (discharge from the eye).
  • Less tear production.
  • Light sensitivity.
  • Ptosis, or drooping eyelid.
  • Blepharospasm, or uncontrolled twitching eyelid.
  • Nystagmus, or shaking eyes.

Medical Studies Show That Alternate Forms of Marijuana Can Cause Harm to the Eyes

Today, there are new methods of ingesting medical cannabis that could be less addictive. For example, lozenges, topical oils, and creams have all been developed to reduce the risk of getting high while benefitting from potential medical effects.

Unfortunately, these newer methods of medical marijuana use do not work to lower intraocular pressure. A study found that eye drops containing THC did not lower intraocular pressure at all. Another study found that smoking marijuana lowered intraocular pressure, and the amount of cannabis ingested would lower IOP in measurable ways, but ingesting more cannabis would not lead to effects that lasted longer. The body still metabolized THC’s peak effects in three to four hours.

Because the effects on IOP last only a few hours, medical marijuana does not help to maintain stable low eye pressure, which is necessary to reduce damage to the optic nerve.

Some studies suggest that marijuana can increase optic nerve damage. Cannabis use decreases blood flow throughout the body. If the optic nerve does not receive enough oxygen through the bloodstream, it will begin to die, which will lead to further vision loss.

A study on CBD oil in laboratory rats found that there was a paradoxical harmful effect. Since THC seems to be the chemical that lowers IOP, using medical marijuana with less THC can be worse for your eyes. The study reported an 18 percent increase in intraocular pressure in the rats who used CBD oil, which lasted for about four hours.

Eye Doctors Understand the Best Course of Glaucoma Treatment

Ultimately, the best treatment for glaucoma keeps eye pressure in a healthy range all day. Eye drops and some forms of surgery can help to maintain lower eye pressure for months or years. Eye drops must be applied consistently, but they will be used less often than medical marijuana would need to be used, and they have fewer impactful side effects.

People who have glaucoma often wonder if there are better forms of treatment than eye drops or surgery. This led to an interest in marijuana, including the use of CBD. Learn what studies say about the effect of marijuana use on glaucoma.

Glaucoma, Marijuana, & CBD Oil

As marijuana use becomes more accepted and increasingly legalized, glaucoma patients frequently ask if marijuana can really treat glaucoma. We need to explain some truths and dispel some myths.

Marijuana is legal for medical use in 30 US states and for recreational use in 9 US States. It’s legal across Canada for recreational use. Despite the relaxed attitude around marijuana, it is still classified by the federal Drug Enforcement Agency as a Schedule I controlled substance (the same category as heroin and LSD ).

Does Marijuana Lower Intraocular Pressure?

Marijuana’s ability to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) was discovered in the 1970s. Elevated IOP is the major risk factor for developing glaucoma and for the progression of glaucoma. Treatment is focused solely on reducing IOP. Many have wondered whether marijuana could be used as a therapy to lower IOP and prevent glaucoma from getting worse or causing blindness.

While marijuana does lower IOP, it has major drawbacks as a treatment for a chronic, long-term, disease like glaucoma:

  • First, unlike glaucoma eyedrops (some of which are effective for up to 24 hours), smoking THC reduces eye pressure for only 3-4 hours. Marijuana would require 8-10 doses per day.
  • This would cost more than typical glaucoma treatment
  • The physical and mental side-effects of frequent marijuana use would reduce one’s productivity.
  • Marijuana also impairs judgment and coordination, increases paranoia, elevates heart rate, and irritates the eyes.

Are There Long-Term Side Effects of Marijuana?

Marijuana can cause permanent lung damage when smoked, and possible permanent adverse effects on cognition and mental health. With regular use, tolerance to the eye pressure-lowering effects develops, meaning that increasing drug levels would be required to prevent progression of glaucoma. Moreover, lack of regulation and quality control makes efficacy and safety of marijuana unpredictable. Research efforts to develop THC eyedrops that can effectively lower eye pressure while minimizing side effects are being studied, but have not yet been successful.

What About CBD (cannabidiol) Oil?

New evidence has emerged showing that parts of the cannabis plant, specifically cannabidiol (CBD), the non-intoxicating, trendy component, may actually worsen glaucoma symptoms. Researchers at Indiana University published a study in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science that shows CBD increases pressure in the eye. This is problematic, they say, considering that CBD has become such a household name in American culture that many people, some of which may have or be at risk for glaucoma, are using it haphazardly as a natural, harmless medicine. But in reality, CBD could be destroying their overall eye health.

The Final Verdict

For these reasons, smoking marijuana or using CBD oil is not recommended as a medical treatment for glaucoma. If you use marijuana or CBD oil, let your ophthalmologist know since it may have an impact on your eye pressure readings. Also, it is very important to continue the glaucoma treatment recommended by your ophthalmologist. This treatment and regular monitoring can help you maintain your vision for the rest of your life.
