FDA has outlawed CBD and hemp oil extracts

I don't think this article is representing the facts correctly.
The FDA did issue warnings letter last year to a few companies that sell cbd products but that was because they were making claims about its cancer treating properties. While there may be many testimonials about the benefits to cancer patients there are not enough studies that they can make those claims.
I am a supporter of cbd and marajuana use and I don't want the FDA to prevent it but I don't find any evidence to back this article saying it's been outlawed.

What is a legitimate site to order CBD oil. I hear it’s disgusting to taste. Is it able to be put on your skin? I don’t want to inhale anything.

I was told to try a vape store, by my pharmacist. I told him I didn’t want to vape, & he said that I could take 3 drops under my tongue and I wouldn’t have to vape it. He said his mom uses it and he told me where to go and everything. I got Genesis brand 1000mg CBD vape oil. But again, you do not have to vape it. It does help relax me but I have been on such high doses of pain meds that I had to increase to 4 drops 3-4 times a day. I’ll probably get the strongest one next time. I believe it’s 2000mg. I tried to order some online and got straight hemp oil 200mg. Totally not the same thing!! Good luck!
