Bill Introduced To Congress For Regulating CBD In Dietary Supplements Receiving Bipartisan And Industry Support
Garnering widespread support from multiple industries and across political lines, a bill that would legalize and regulate cannabidiol (CBD) and other hemp derivatives in dietary supplements has been introduced to Congress.
The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020 (H.R. 8179) was presented on September 4. Under this act, manufacturers would have to abide by the current regulations for dietary supplements. Thus includes safety procedures, labeling requirements, and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Under this act, CBD and other non-intoxicating hemp derivatives can now be marketed as dietary supplements legally.
The bill was sponsored by U.S. Reps Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) and Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) which has received endorsements from more than a dozen industry organizations and nearly 50 companies. A lot of industry organizations from Vote Hemp and Hemp Industries Association to Council for Responsible Nutrition and American Herbal Products Association showed their support for this bill and highlighted the ways this would help. Unfortunately, the FDA’s stance on the issue makes it harder for farmers to sell their product. However, most businesses identify this as a major positive change that would open up more opportunities and provide some stability. While this is a relatively small step, it is still one step forward in that direction.
