How CBD Oil Can Help Veterans?
Does the VA Prescribe CBD Oil?
Unfortunately, because VA clinicians can only prescribe medications that have been approved by the FDA, they cannot currently prescribe CBD. CBD is currently unregulated by the FDA. Although, that may change soon, as the FDA just approved the first drug containing CBD in 2018. CBD is also not covered by Medicare or Social Security benefits.
