FDA sent out eight warning letters on earlier this month to various makers of a dietary supplement called cannabidiol, which is derived from the Cannabis plant. Cannabidiol, also known as CBD oil, is described as a nonpsychoactive dietary supplement that is purported to have numerous benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antiemetic properties. 

However, FDA said the CBD oil products are being marketed as medications and have not been adequately tested to prove they are safe and effective.
