Several Members Of Congress Support Measure That Would Allow FDA-Regulated CBD To Be Marketed In Dietary Supplements
Colorado-based small businesses are having a hard time as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc across the country. Over half a million people in the state have submitted unemployment applications. There have been thousands of bankruptcies filed since the pandemic started.
With so many industries absorbing the shock and strain of the financial crisis, public officials and leaders should seek every solution to help protect and lift small business owners.
Colorado’s small business owners and hemp farmers have come up with a simple solution, one that costs nothing. They want the federal government to classify CBD derived from hemp as a food additive or supplement. Currently, the FDA regulates its use in medicines and prohibits ingestibles sale.
This can be done with the Congress granting permission which would allow the FDA-regulated CBD products to be marketed as dietary supplements. Another way would be for the FDA to take action. Once FDA loosens some restrictions, companies like Target, Kroger, and Walmart would be able to fully support the CBD products. As always, it would be accompanied by the benefit that CBD will be sold in a regulated manner without any issues. This will help millions of consumers to get access to products that help their health while allowing farmers and small businesses to get through this hard time.
