CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, MD, just released his fifth documentary on cannabinoids, Weed 5: The CBD Craze. Like his previous documentaries delving into various aspects of marijuana, Weed 5 takes an in-depth look at the boon in CBD products, the lack of research and regulation, and the risks of taking CBD products that don’t contain any cannabinoids. As Dr. Gupta writes on CNN’s website, “Without the respect of being treated like the medicine it is, or reasonable regulation when it is purchased as a supplement, CBD has been hijacked by unscrupulous actors peddling crooked, corrupt and contaminated products.”
Watch the trailer here. The documentary aired on September 29, and is now available on demand via cable/satellite systems, CNNgo platform and CNN mobile apps.
