FDA Strict Against CBD-Infused Foods and Drinks after Being Quiet for Long

CBD products are high in demand in the market. Predictions are being made that the CBD industry will grow from $311.7 million in 2019 to a whopping $1.25 billion by 2024. In 2019, the volume of hemp farming quadrupled after its legalization in the 2018 farm bill. When checked online, more than one thousand products were available on sale. You can find CBD laden cookies, fragrances, edibles in abundance. This week, warning letters were sent out to many companies by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as they were selling products containing CBD illegally. As per the FDA, the companies had violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Simultaneously, FDA also published a Consumer Update, mentioning the safety concerns related to CBD products. The federal government hasn’t still concluded that CBD is safe for humans and animals, and hence its use in foods and drinks is being deemed illegal.

Companies that manufacture and sell CBD products have been waiting for guidelines from the FDA for labeling and marketing the products. But FDA has not been able to provide any clear guidelines or regulations to date. Companies that have received the warning opine in unison that FDA says they will come with instructions and rules, but they don’t. Hence, it is difficult to understand what they want. Fifteen working days have been given to the companies at fault so that they can think of ways to rectify the violations. It is a move that can also make the end-users baffled, they believe.

This move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been highly applauded by The Center of Science in the Public Interest. CBD is legal in prescription and is highly effective for treating two rare kinds of epilepsies. The Center of Science in the Public Interest opines that there is no assurance that CBD will minimize risks of diabetes, take a person off opioids, shrink tumors, calm anxiety and stress and also prevent schizophrenia.
