The CBD industry in the United States has been in a state of confusion regarding the legal status of CBD products. The lack of clear regulations has left many consumers unsure of the safety and effectiveness of CBD products. This has led to a patchwork of state and federal regulations. To bring clarity to the industry, U.S. lawmakers have reintroduced two bills aimed at setting a clear regulatory framework for CBD products. The bills seek to ensure consumers have access to safe and accurately labeled products.
Proposed Regulations for CBD Products
The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021 and the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Regulatory Market Improvement Act of 2021 seek to set a new set of regulations for CBD products. The proposed regulations include a maximum THC level of 0.3% for hemp-derived CBD products, mandatory testing for contaminants and accurate labeling of CBD content, and a regulatory framework for CBD products. The regulatory framework would be overseen by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Benefits of Proposed Regulations
The proposed regulations would provide much-needed clarity for the CBD industry and consumers who use CBD products. The regulations would ensure that CBD products are safe and effective, and accurately labeled. The proposed regulations would also allow for the sale of hemp-derived CBD products across state lines and provide protections for hemp farmers and businesses.
Challenges in the CBD Industry
The CBD industry faces many challenges, including a lack of clear regulations, and concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of CBD products. The FDA has yet to issue formal regulations around CBD and has only approved one CBD product for use in treating epilepsy. In the absence of clear federal regulations, some states have passed their own laws around CBD. However, this has led to a confusing patchwork of regulations.
Organic Grit Adheres to Proposed Regulations
Here at Organic Grit we are one of the companies leading the way in producing safe and effective CBD products. We use only organic, non-GMO hemp to produce our products, ensuring that our customers are getting the highest quality CBD possible. We also use third-party lab testing to ensure that our products are free of contaminants and accurately labeled.
Furthermore, we adhere to many of the proposed regulations in the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021 and the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Regulatory Market Improvement Act of 2021. For example, all our CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC, the maximum level proposed in the legislation. Additionally, our products are already tested for contaminants and accurately labeled with their CBD content.
The Bottom Line
The reintroduction of the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021 and the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Regulatory Market Improvement Act of 2021 is a significant step towards providing clarity and regulation in the rapidly growing CBD industry. The proposed legislation would set a clear regulatory framework for CBD products, ensuring that consumers have access to safe and accurately labeled products.
