Will A Newly Introduced Bill Allow Hemp And CBD To Be Marketed As A Supplement?
Representatives Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) have recently introduced a bill that would allow CBD and hemp to be marketed and sold as supplements. Manufacturers of the supplement would need to submit an NDI and make sure they tick all the boxes for dietary supplements as detailed in the FDCA and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) also applauded the move saying that this would encourage a safer and stronger dietary supplement marketplace for CBD-based products while still following the FDA’s rules. While the FDA still working on CBD’s efficacy and safety, many consumers are risking their health by buying unsafe or poorly manufactured products.
Gustafson noted that CRN has repeatedly called on FDA to allow CBD to be marketed as a supplement, thus holding CBD to the same standards as other supplements while allowing safe products to take advantage of “heightened consumer interest, increased sales, and expanded product innovation.”
