Marketers are targeting Chiropractors and other groups to get in on the next “big wave”….CBD products. CBD IDS is available at farmer’s markets, beauty shops, gyms etc. but may not be suitable for your practice. The FDA has approved only 1 product for treatment for one particular condition and this is available only by prescription (something
most DC’s are not licensed to perform). They consider all forms of CBD (pills, teas, topicals, ingestibles …) to be a concern. Those concerns include: unscientific claims of results, purity and safety of the product. Prosecutions could be coming. The IDPR, the Chiropractic regulatory agency in IL, feels that products refined from industrial hemp are currently outside the scope of practice for DCs in our state. The IPSCA Legal Affairs Committee feels it is not advisable for IL DCs to sell CBD products for the treatment of human ailments at this time!
