The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates much of what consumers are able to put in their bodies, which includes hemp-derived CBD. Presently, the FDA prohibits CBD from being used in food, beverages, and dietary supplements.
According to a news update by Nutritional Outlook, Oregon senators urged the FDA:
“Current, outdated regulations limit producers from taking full advantage of the industrial hemp market by, for example, prohibiting food products containing CBD from being sold across state lines. In recent years, the public has developed a widespread interest in the production and use of CBD, one of the primary non-psychoactive compounds in Cannabis sativa L. We therefore request the FDA immediately begin updating regulations for hemp-derived CBD and other hemp-derived cannabinoids, and give U.S. producers more flexibility in the production, consumption, and sale hemp products.”
