FDA Hosts Meeting With CBD Businesses & Advocates

In a landmark step, the Food & Drug Administration hosted a public panel with 114 speakers including Academia, Agriculture, Manufacturing, Patients, Public Safety, Retail/Distributors, Government Entities, Consumers, and Health Care Professionals.

Since the passing of the historic 2018 Farm Bill – which made CBD legal federally – the powers of mandate have been placed within the FDA. This agency, known for not only their secrecy but their multi-year delays wrapped in bureaucracy, has been progressive in their outreach.

This contrarian approach from the FDA likely means a public ruling outlining new guidelines and rules for the CBD businesses throughout the industry.
