H.R.1629: Urge Congress to Regulate CBD as a Dietary Supplement

Calling all Hemp Supporters and CBD Consumers! We need your help to support H.R.1629, The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2023, a critical bill that would empower the FDA to regulate hemp-derived CBD as a dietary supplement.  

As you know, CBD products have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a range of potential health benefits and therapeutic uses. However, the lack of clear regulation has created confusion and uncertainty in the market, leaving consumers vulnerable to unsafe products and hindering the growth of the industry. Federal regulatory uncertainty has also severely impacted the hemp market, with reduced manufacturing demand resulting in a more than 90% commodity price decline, crushing opportunities for U.S. farmers. 

H.R.1629 would change that. If passed, this bill would give the FDA the authority to establish a clear framework for regulating CBD products as dietary supplements. This would provide greater clarity and consistency for consumers and businesses alike, while also ensuring that these products meet safety and quality standards.

By supporting H.R.1629, we can help promote safer, more accessible CBD products for all consumers, while also supporting the growth of the hemp industry and the farmers who depend on it. That’s why we’re calling on you to take action today! 

Please use our Federal Action Center to make your voice heard! Just fill out this form to contact your members of Congress urging them to cosponsor H.R.1629 for sensible CBD regulation. Together, we can support the hemp industry and promote safe, accessible CBD products for all!
