Calling all CBD Enthusiasts: Your Support is Needed!
On Friday September 4, 2020, Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) introduced H.R. 8179, a house bill that would enable CBD and hemp derived products to be labeled and marketed as dietary supplements. This newly introduced bill is titled “The Hemp and Hemp Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020."
CBD startups and hemp farmers have suffered at the hands of the FDA due to their leisurely approval of regulation for hemp derived CBD products. The ambiguity harms businesses as they operate and plan out of fear of being shut down by the FDA for breaking an unclear rule. It harms the consumers as well since there is no industry standard or governing body to enforce it, so consumers can be sold low quality, unsafe products.
This bill would benefit businesses and consumers alike.
This bill would increase federal regulation, clarifying the rules that businesses have to follow and increasing the protection of consumers’ health and wellness.
At CBD Universe and Spyder CBD, we welcome oversight and already hold ourselves to strict standards for clean, effective products.
Companies would be required to comply with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act that standardizes the regulation that ensures that products are deemed safe, properly labeled, and prepared utilizing Good Manufacturing Processes. CBD Universe is already in compliance with these attributes, but the industry is still rampant with unsafe, and improperly labeled products. This bill would create the foundation from which the CBD industry will be able to flourish and be safe.
