FDA's Gottlieb Warning Letters on Deceptive CBD Marketing

FDA's Gottlieb Warning Letters on Deceptive CBD Marketing

"While the 2018 Farm Bill was a boon for the hemp industry, the ambiguous regulatory status of CBD in food, drink, and OTC products-particularly as it now, explicitly, falls under FDA regulation-likely caused forward-thinking companies, such as Canopy Growth and Green Growth Brands, to temper internal expectations of a completely open United States market". The FDA said that it will hold its first public hearing on May 31 to explore how CBD can be used safely in food, supplements, and cosmetics. The Ohio Senate voted unanimously last month to legalize hemp and related products, like CBD oil, which is still considered the same as cannabis under the state's medical marijuana law. The bureau says CBD cannot be added to food or marketed as a dietary supplement because officials haven't determined if it is safe or effective.

The law states that selling CBD flowers with a THC content of under 0.2% is only permitted if the sale has a commercial or scientific goal, rather than consumption in the attempt to get a high.

Nowadays, it seems like CBD is everywhere. Products were confiscated, hands were slapped, and public complaints ensued prompting members of Congress to press the FDA on the issue.

"This is a complicated topic and we expect that it could take some time to resolve fully. Nevertheless, we're deeply focused on this issue and committed to continuing to engage relevant stakeholders as we consider potential paths forward". It includes sections devoted specifically to what changed under the 2018 Farm Bill.

CBD is a molecule found in hemp and marijuana.

Although there is no other reason to purchase and consume CBD aside from treating a medical condition or improving one's health, the FDA is unlikely to give a green light to marketing CBD as a health supplement or for the treatment of any disease, at least for some time, until extensive research is undertaken. Ron Wyden of OR, are urging the FDA to approve CBD.

In a recent interview with PotNetwork, cannabis industry attorney Seth Golberg stated, "I think it is still unclear with respect to the FDA".

The FDA has oversight of CBD because it is the active ingredient within an approved prescription medication to treat seizure disorders.

With CBD products still on shelves, lawmakers in California, Texas and other states are pushing legislation that would legalize the cannabis compound that many see as beneficial to their health. It sailed through its first committee in the House this week.

Moreover, within the past week the FDA, in concert with the Federal Trade Commission, sent threatening letters to a handful of CBD makers pointing out health claims violations.
