FDA Working with CBD Industry to Introduce Dietary Supplements

The FDA just sent a long overdue CBD enforcement update to Congress, starting the process of listing CBD as a dietary supplement – but with demands and enforcement of such demands. 

The process will likely be slow, as the FDA must first reopen a public docket to gain additional information about cannabidiol, an apparent retread of the first CBD public docket from 2018-2019. 

According to the agency, however, as well as new commissioner Stephen Hahn, it would make no sense to prohibit selling CBD as a dietary supplement, since people have already decided they want it. 

As regards the new enforcement policy, the agency states “Policy would need to balance the goals of protecting the public and providing more clarity to industry and the public regarding FDA’s enforcement priorities.”

Thus far, enforcement policy hasn’t been clearly explained, but aggressively pushed – since the FDA sent several warnings to successful CBD companies about making unsubstantiated claims. 

The agency admitted that “as more data becomes available, we will be able to refine or revise our thinking.”

What the agency did reiterate, however, was that CBD was not “risk-free” and it should only be allowed in dietary supplements under “certain conditions.”

Medically speaking, the agency wants to know the long-term effects of CBD oil, how different methods of exposure affect intake, and it affects the human brain. 

While the process is far from over, it is encouraging to some in the industry that the agency appears to be serious about removing their own ruling of banning CBD dietary products. 

USDA Working with Hemp Industry

More good news from government sectors as USDA Secretary, Sonny Perdue, recently told Congress that the final rules regarding the regulation of federal hemp production were a draft. This implies the enforcement of such rules could be delayed. 

This is good news for hemp farmers and industry members since they initially balked at the idea of the USDA requiring that all hemp be tested in USDA-registered labs. 

Many small-time hemp producers couldn’t afford the obligation or stringent demands. 

Perdue later said if the agency can’t resolve state concerns by the new 2021 growing season, he will try to be “as flexible as the law allows.”

Coronavirus Transmission and Hemp Growing

On the subject of hemp production, millions of Americans are avoiding all businesses and products and economies are sinking. That’s why federal agencies like the US Department of Agriculture are joining hemp production companies in reminding folks that all food products are inspected for disease, as always, and safe to eat – even in a pandemic environment. 

Some cannabis companies like Victory Hemp Foods are reaching out to customers directly, explaining that all products are inspected, and furthermore, that “coronavirus transmission via food has been ruled unlikely by global health agencies.”

CBD Cures Your Panic

While the FDA has made it clear that CBD does not cure coronavirus and has censured companies from making such claims, some CBD companies are marketing their products to an anxious clientele. 

In Austin, Texas, where the pandemic is growing, one CBD shop is reporting a boom in business. Buyers are looking for relief and calm, especially since many are avoiding all public places anyway. 

Even though stores can’t claim CBD’s anti-anxiety effects, many store owners and customers still swear by its effects. Some companies are even taking a chance and selling CBD hand sanitizers – cleanliness and a sense of calm?

An Odd Choice for Comfort

If CBD hand-sanitizers seem unusual, then wait until you see what one Bulgarian entrepreneur did when she noticed the popularity of CBD oil and common problems among her gender. Valetina Milanova is launching Daye, a health brand that makes CBD-infused tampons, specifically to help relieve menstrual cramps.

She raised $5.5 million and created a waiting list of 20,000 customers. 

“We are all still using tampons that were designed in the 1940s because we see them as a banal, generic product. Our biggest insight at Daye is to dig deeper and see tampons for what they are: an exciting opportunity to bring higher standards.”

Mexico Set to Legalize Hemp and Marijuana

Finally, major news from down south, as Mexico is set to become the most populous country with legal marijuana and hemp. Unlike other North American countries, Mexico is making all cannabis legal, regardless of THC content. 

This move could give Mexico the opportunity to export and import from businesses all over the world, wherever cannabis is legal. 

While the regulations have yet to be sorted out, and could actually take years to fully allow cannabis businesses to thrive, the new law represents a major victory for cannabis – and a blow to not only to the ongoing U.S. drug war, but also to the U.S. economy itself. 

Soon, CBD and marijuana will be legally sold in both Mexico and Canada, leaving the U.S. hindered and a few steps behind. Mexico’s Supreme Court set the date for legalization to be April 30th, 2020. 

The new bill allows medical or recreational cannabis, for import or export, transformation, sale, cultivation, and research. Hemp cannot be cultivated in Mexico but it can be imported. 

Ironically, the Supreme Court’s wording of the issue, specifically that it’s “unconstitutional to ban the use of cannabis for personal use under the theory of free development of personality” is loosely based on the United States’ Bill of Rights.

One can’t help but wonder how this landmark decision will affect the United States and its stubborn resistance against overturning the federal ban on marijuana.  If they don’t follow suit, it will represent a significant hindrance. Yet both frontrunner Democratic and Republican candidates seem opposed to the idea. 

No wonder that the CBD industry is slowly but surely getting government support. Perhaps government officials see it as the lesser evil, compared to the more liberal dealings of Canada and Mexico. 

With more legal and scientific support from the FDA, however, hopefully, more people will experience the healing benefits of cannabidiol products in the near future. 

WHO DID WHAT

The FDA finally admitted that CBD dietary supplements are a thriving market that won’t go away. 

WHAT WENT DOWN

The FDA will work with the industry to legalize CBD products, as food or dietary supplements, with significant new rules. The USDA also said they are willing to work with hemp farmers as much as the law allows, until they can comply with new hemp production guidelines. 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR NEXT

Will cannabis legalization be an issue in the 2020 presidential election?

Hey, I have really bad anxeity and I’m looking for a relief. I’ve been using cbd for a long time and it does not really help. Yesterday I heard about cbg and I saw a lot of positive reviews. I’m really scared of mental health issues. I have really bad experience with thc, and I herd that cbg effects are similar to thc effects. Do u have any experience with cbg and do u think that is safe?
