FDA UPDATE: Insider Access to Today’s FDA Hearing!
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.
The Roundtable was featured in a some of the nation’s leading new outlets – from the New York Times to National Public Radio to CNN to U.S. News and World Report.
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.
