Today’s inaugural FDA public hearing on CBD marked an historic moment for the U.S. hemp industry.
It also marked a groundbreaking moment for the U.S. Hemp Roundtable.
More significantly, our General Counsel, Jonathan Miller, served as one of the first testifiers at the hearing, making a passionate case for the FDA to engage in an expeditious pathway toward the full legal recognition of hemp-derived CBD as a food additive and dietary supplement. Jonathan testified that CBD is safe, and that the U.S Hemp Authority’s efforts to promote high standards, best practices and self-regulation will provide comfort to consumers, regulators and law enforcement that products are safe and legal.
