8) What is the difference between a Schedule I and Schedule II drugs?
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:
heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote
Schedule II drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, less abuse potential than Schedule I drugs, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. These drugs are also considered dangerous. Some examples of Schedule II drugs are:
Combination products with less than 15 milligrams of hydrocodone per dosage unit (Vicodin), cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, hydromorphone (Dilaudid), meperidine (Demerol), oxycodone (OxyContin), fentanyl, Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin

11) Recreational cannabis versus medicinal cannabis
Vicodin and OxyContin are both Schedule II drugs which are lawfully produced for medicinal purposes and prescribed by a doctor. CBD MEDS does not condone the recreational use of either of these two drugs, and does so no more or no less than the recreational use of cannabis. CBD MEDS strictly operates with the desire, determination, and intention to help people who are searching for the best medicinal cannabis products available in the medical cannabis industry. CBD MEDS does everything within its means to try to ensure that its oil extracts and gel capsules are produced and delivered only to people who have a doctor’s prescription and are really in need of them.
12) What is CBD MEDS long term goal?
When the day comes that the FDA reschedules cannabis from a schedule I to schedule II drug, our first objective will be to file an FDA application for the testing of our medicine. We would be grateful to someday be respected by the pharmaceutical industry as a company whose ideals and quality medicine separates itself as a leader in the medical drug industry.
