FDA is Committed to Sound, Science-based Policy on CBD

This is not the view of Hemp.com, it is a statement by the government. Remember that WE can change things if we demand it.

Science forms the basis for decisions at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is paramount when it comes to making decisions that will impact the health and safety of the American public. We apply this rigorous, science-based approach to matters large and small that come before the Agency — including with respect to products containing cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds, including cannabidiol (CBD).

The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.

We recognize that there is significant public interest in these products, for therapeutic purposes and otherwise. At the same time, there are many unanswered questions about the science, safety, and quality of many of these products. As we approach these questions, we do so as a science-based regulatory agency committed to our mission of protecting and promoting public health.

The FDA’s approach to cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds has been consistent. We treat substances derived from cannabis just like we do any other substances, and they are subject to the same authorities as any other substance. That said, some other relevant laws have changed, and so has the market.

Where things stand [according to the “government”]
Under the statutory authorities that the FDA has the responsibility to administer, the relevant legal requirements vary depending on which type of product we’re talking about. For example, if a product is being marketed as a drug — meaning, for example, that it’s intended to have a therapeutic effect such as treating a disease — then it’s regulated as a drug, and it generally cannot be sold without FDA approval (or, in the case of an over-the-counter drug, an FDA monograph). Drugs have important therapeutic value, and it is critical that we continue to do what we can to support the science needed to develop new drugs from cannabis.
