  5. Is the FDA Cracking Down on CBD?

    Is the FDA Cracking Down on CBD?

    Hemp products are in something of a transition period. It wasn’t too long ago that hemp was treated as a controlled substance in the United States, so most farmers didn’t get their start on growing hemp until after the passage of the 2018 US Farm Bill. Federal and state governments are still figuring out what to do with this new industry, and part of that process is figuring out how to regulate it.

    The US Food and Drug Administration is in charge of regulating food, tobacco, dietary supplements, prescription drugs, and various other human health products. Therefore, the FDA is the agency that has to develop rules for hemp products meant for human consumption and topical use, including CBD tinctures, salves, and edibles. Right now, they’re debating what to do with the burgeoning CBD market. The decisions the FDA makes will have a major impact on the way the hemp industry evolves in the future.

    The FDA Hearing on CBD

    The FDA held a public hearing on CBD regulations on May 31. The daylong hearing had over 100 speakers including researchers, doctors, and industry advocates. This hearing is the first step as FDA officials decide if the current regulatory framework around CBD products is adequate. Industry insiders all seem to agree that some changes are on the way, but it’s difficult to say what those changes will look like.

    The hearing did establish a few themes that give us insight into what officials are concerned with, which gives us a rough idea of what regulators are likely to address.

    • Unpredictable, inconsistent dosages and fraudulent labeling: FDA officials asked questions about terms like full spectrum and isolate, and toxicologists pointed to the varying effects CBD has based on administration method. Inconsistent and inaccurate product labeling was also a concern, as was the amount of comp

  6. How the 2018 Farm Bill Impacts the Hemp Industry

    How the 2018 Farm Bill Impacts the Hemp Industry

    The 2018 Farm Bill has most people in the hemp and CBD industry ecstatic. As a customer, you probably haven’t taken the time to read a 1,000-page U.S. Senate bill to figure out what it means for your favorite CBD products—and that’s okay. We did the heavy lifting for you (but if you want to look it over yourself, you can download the bill as a PDF for free here).

    Here’s a quick primer on the Farm Bill, the history of cannabis regulation in the US, and why this new bill could mean massive growth for the CBD industry.

    What is the Farm Bill?

    The United States legislature drafts a new farm bill every five years. It’s an ‘omnibus’ bill in that it covers a wide range of regulations, ranging from agriculture to food and nutrition programs and conservation—everything the United States Department of Agriculture is in charge of.

    The first farm bills were drafted during the Great Depression to provide financial assistance to struggling farmers. At the time, farmers were getting hit hard by surpluses that drove prices down and made their main source of income essentially worthless. The Agricultural Adjustment Act was signed into law in 1933 as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. It curbed the price problem by paying farmers to not plant crops on parts of their land and also let the government buy up excess crops like wheat. It also included a nutrition program that would be the precursor for food stamps.

    The five-year renewal rule was added in 1938’s Agricultural Adjustment Act, and since then the farm bill has been the a
