CBD Product Tests: Results Can Be Alarming | NBC 4 I-Team
NBC 4 New York first highlighted the popularity surrounding CBD-infused products months ago.
CBD, or Cannabinol oil, is a chemical found in marijuana and hemp plants that doesn’t get you high, which advocates say help to heal a variety of health problems. CBD products purchased over-the-counter are unregulated and unmonitored by the Food and Drug Administration. NBC New York decided to put dozens of these products to the test to learn what is lurking under the label of certain CBD products.

Arliss Buergo has been using CBD oil for more than a year to treat her severe anxiety. She sought out CBD as an alternative to traditional prescription medication. Buergo currently doesn’t have a medical prescription for CBD so she has purchased over-the-counter products.
