Federal Warnings about Delta-8
Yesterday, two of the leading health agencies of federal government – the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control – issued simultaneous public warning notices to the public about Delta-8 THC products. The major concerns identified by these agencies involved their marketing, the potential use by minors, and most prominently, the potential harmful byproducts of unsafe manufacturing practices. Both agencies cite numerous examples of D8 use leading to hospital visits and poison control calls over the past several months.
This new development shines yet another bright spotlight on the desperate need for regulation in this space. As a reminder, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable believes that Delta-8, as well as any other intoxicating compounds, should be regulated as adult-use cannabis. Meanwhile, non-intoxicating hemp products, like CBD should be regulated as dietary supplements and food and beverage additives.
