Robert karif, the director of the US Food and drug administration, commented at the budget hearing of the US House of Representatives on Thursday. He said that he was "very committed" to making progress in CBD, but his agency needs more power to do so. According to hemp link, when asked about "industrial hemp products", karif pointed out that "there are surprisingly many derivatives of industrial hemp plants", and said that it is "far-reaching and shocking". He acknowledged that industrial cannabis extracts and derivatives "have been widely used", and then pointed out that FDA's work so far has focused on risk assessment research. "I am very committed to making a path in this regard," he said. But to do so, California says Congress needs to give his agency more power. Representative markpocan, a Democrat from Wisconsin, pressed the California government to propose a timetable that might allow CBD as a food additive.
