Statement from the National Hemp Association

Currently inconsistencies happen with CBD products due to a lack of standards and regulations. While some on the industry are working towards the creation of standards, the final authority on how CBD products will be regulated will come from the FDA.

These regulations will be vitally important for consumers, not only to ensure that what is in the product is what is on the labels, but also for consistency in dosing. Currently a consumer may be taking a certain dose of CBD and obtaining a particular result. Should the benefits suddenly change the consumer can’t know for certain if something has changed within themselves or if the product is no longer exactly the same as it was previously.


It is imperative that the FDA quickly develops a legal and reasonable regulatory path for CBD products to protect both consumers and the industry.
