CBD Medical Research & In the News

Cannabinoid science is an ever-evolving and rapidly changing field as continued research is being done and daily discoveries are happening.

Below I have listed medical research journals, online publications, websites dedicated to cannabis education, and/or CBD in the news. Even though this list is not comprehensive I will continually be adding more and more resources. If there is a relevant publication I have missed, feel free to comment as I look forward to providing a complete resource guide.

Are you interested in participating in a CBD clinical study? This list provides nationwide recruitment for clinical trials.


  1. Some of the media articles display the author’s opinion about either cannabis, medical marijuana with or without THC, and/or CBD. Keep in mind, these opinions may differ from yours or mine and it does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Herb ‘N Oil.
  2. Since more and better research is needed, including larger clinical trials, more double-blind studies, and long-term effects, it is important to make note that some of this research has been animal testing and may be in different languages from other countries around the world.
  3. CBD is not (yet) FDA-approved. Herb ‘N Oil products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any diseases or disorders. Please consult a doctor before use.
