And, it’s been a while since my last post.
I read something a few days ago about CBD (cannabidiol) being scheduled as I (one) by the DEA. I found that curious. CBD doesn’t meet schedule I criteria – those three being; 1) Having a high potential for abuse. 2) no medicinal applications and 3) Even under a physician’s supervision the drug is unsafe.
So, I thought, Bullshit… there’s that Department of Health patent and CBD won’t get a fly high. So, I started looking. This popped up:
That’s a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for cannabidiol. No, I’m not shitting you. Right at the get-go it informs us cannabidiol is a DEA schedule I regulated compound. Well I’ll be go-to-hell…an MSDS?
For those of you that aren’t hip to MSDSs: MSDSs are a result of OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) law. A disclosure (to employees) must be made about any toxic chemical on site. The MSDS will contain information about hazards, the physical results of over exposure, and stuff and stuff. Check out the above link, you’ll “get it”.
You should be scratching your head about now, Whaaa…?
You might take the time to notice that MSDS was put out by an outfit calling itself Cayman Chemical Company. You can buy cannabidiol?
And (if you, too, are bored), you can check out their website and find a host of schedule I compounds for sale. Here, take a look:
See the note? Warning: This product is not for human or veterinary use. Do you see further down? Cannabidiol (solution) A neuroprotective phenolic compound from marijuana.
Don’t you simply hate it when you set out to learn a little something, and wind up with more questions than when you started? Okay, fine. CBD is a schedule I “drug”. Why? And – how can this company also offer schedule I synthetic compounds for sale? Do you see HU-210, JWH-200…? These are synthetics that escaped various research universities and could be found in “Spice,” “K-2” and that crap. You know, that crap people were buying in the head shops and smoking because it wasn’t both illegal AND it didn’t show in a U.A.? They’ve been outlawed. They are schedule I. Just like CBD.
I’m tempted to try placing an order. Not that I’ve any interest in the synthetics, I wouldn’t mind having me some CBD solution though. Just as a conversation piece, mind you. I doubt I’ve the credentials to make a succesful purchase though. I’m thinking my cannabis recommendation wouldn’t pass the muster.
Huh. Find the answer to one question raising half a dozen more…
