Hemp supporters pushing for regulation
Recently the company announced that hemp supporters were waiting for the FDA to approve the federal regulation on Hemp Access and Consumer Safety Act. The bill proposed by three US Senators will legalize hemp-derived CBD products as an ingredient in beverages, food, and dietary supplements. However, according to an article in Hemp Today, the FDA’s lack of federal regulations is causing challenges for legal CBD suppliers.
US Hemp Roundtable representative Jonathan Miller said the Act would be a “major win for American consumers, farmers, and the hemp sector as a whole” once enacted. He added that farmers in the US are currently struggling, and the enactment of the bill will allow them to profit from a more stable market. It will also encourage hemp sector innovation and job growth.
