WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration will continue to govern the regulatory status of hemp-based food, beverages and ingredients after the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the farm bill, removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act.

The new U.S. Farm Bill doesn’t mean that anyone can go out and start growing industrial hemp in their backyard.

The F.D.A. will set up a public meeting in the “near future” for stakeholders in the hemp industry, said Scott Gottlieb, M.D., commissioner of the F.D.A., on Dec. 20. The agency on Dec. 20 also said it had “no questions” about the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status of hemp seeds, oil and protein powder in response to petition from Fresh Hemp Foods.

Hemp has a longer history of use if we look closer at the patent history of CBD from 1940.

President Donald Trump, also on Dec. 20, signed the farm bill into law. Provisions of the bill amend the definition of marijuana by removing hemp and all parts of the plant and all derivatives from the definition, according to the American Herbal Products Association, Silver Spring, Md.
