Last week, both parties in the United States passed a bill to set federal standards for CBD food and beverage products.
U.S. congressmen Kathleen rice, Morgan Griffith, Angie Craig and Dan Crenshaw proposed the CBD product safety and standardization act of 2021 in response to the delay in the introduction of relevant regulations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Representative Rice said: "the popularity of CBD products is growing explosively, but the related lack of federal regulation puts consumers at risk and makes the development of enterprises lack of clarity. The CBD product safety and standardization act supported by both parties will establish a clear regulatory framework, provide stability for enterprises and ensure that unsafe products are away from shelves."
The bill is supported by the American consumer brand association and the American hemp round table. Jonathan Miller of the American Marijuana Roundtable said: "we strongly support the requirement that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulate hemp extracts such as CBD as food and beverage ingredients."
In fact, the organization said it supported "certain aspects" of the bill and was eager to cooperate with the bill sponsors to ensure that the bill "provides the widest protection for hemp extract products consumed by humans and animals".
