Georgia Agriculture Commission Warns Businesses About Putting CBD into Food and Drinks
- Ad -

Gary Black, who is the commissioner of Georgia Agriculture, has issued a warning to both businesses and consumers related to adding hemp-CBD to food and drink products.

The warning, which comes in the form of a press release, indicates that even though HB213 has been signed into law and permits hemp and hemp products to be sold, CBD oil in food or dietary supplements is still unlawful according to the FDA.

Commissioner Black shared in the press release, “The passing and signage of the industrial hemp bill is the first step in a complex and multistep process. The state of Georgia follows the rules established by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, and FDA has been very clear that CBD is not currently permissible for inclusion in food and dietary supplements.”

The press release also indicates that the Department cannot license or endorse CBD in food or feed products until the FDA changes regulations.

Spokeswoman Julie McPeake for the Georgia Agriculture Department also indicated that if state officials are aware of violations, they could begin enforcing them. In addition, she added that the state could levy fines, revoke the food license, and issue cease and desist orders.
