Title What does the CBD down-scheduling mean? Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet Medical Republic Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 9/11/20 Description
By down-scheduling low-dose CBD – classified as 60 mg per day – to a schedule 3 medicine, it will, from June 2021, become available over the counter at pharmacies, without a prescription. Confirmation of September’s interim decision to down-schedule is expected later this month.
Yet beneath the simplistic CBD-for-all headlines that greeted the TGA’s announcement is a more uncertain and nuanced picture. For starters, there are serious question marks about the efficacy of CBD at such a low dose, something recognised in a TGA Safety Review.
