DEA puts CBD oil in same category as heroin and LSD
WASHINGTON -- The Drug Enforcement Administration issued a ruling Wednesday, declaring cannabidiol hemp oil a Schedule 1 substance. That puts CBD oil in the same category as heroin, LSD, MDMA, psilocybin and other drugs. CBD oil is derived from hemp plants that do not contain a large amount of tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive component in cannabis.
