FDA Sets Public Hearing On Food And Drinks Containing CBD

On May 31, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold its first public hearing on legalizing cannabidiol (CBD) in food and drinks.

The agency is calling for data on CBD’s safety in food products as well as suggestions on how the FDA might regulate manufacturing, marketing, and labeling CBD-infused products.

In a statement released on April 2, the FDA commissioner stated that the agency is responding to the growing interest in the development of medical therapies and consumer products that derive from cannabis and its components, including CBD.
