(NEW YORK)–FDA provided some insight on potential rules and frame work regarding CBD infusion in food & beverages at recent Hemp conference.
Lowell Schiller, the Principal Associate Commissioner for Policy at the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) addressed a hemp conference to outline some guidance on how they may regulate CBD infusion into food & beverages. Despite the growth and popularity of CBD oil products, there are regulations and legislations required depending on each state.
In short, they made clear that CBD infusion in food & beverages remains illegal to sell over the counter without approval. Since CBD was labeled as a drug in the past it would have to adhere to clinical trials and safety standards before being allowed to be sold to consumers. Learning about CBD oil and CBD in general, can better help you understand what it is all about and how it can affect you. Luckily there are online resources for those who are interested in learning more about CBD. Companies similar to Daily Marijuana could help give you the knowledge you need to understand CBD and its different uses.
Enforcement May Be Little For Compliant Players
Offhand this sounds really bad for CBD companies, and it is, but there may be some light on the horizon.
You may have been trading CBD stocks over the past few months and thought you bought a stinker of stock, but that wasn’t totally true. What you had was real money sitting on sidelines waiting to see what the FDA would do since they are a federal agency, and override any state laws that currently stand.
But, as we all know, CBD products are already out there in mass, and even if the FDA wanted to crack down on this exploding industry they may not have the manpower to do that.
So what does this mean?
This means although currently, they are saying CBD infused foods & beverages may be illegal, if the stock you are trading isn’t making any outlandish claims that CBD can cure certain diseases, and being conservative on their labeling, then you may be ok.
If the stock is claiming to cure a certain disease in their releases, or on their labels, then you should avoid those plays.
If the company is being more conservative in their claims, or just selling quicksilver scientific cbd or other hemp oils as a supplement, then those are the best ones to be in right now.
Risks Remains, But So Does Value
This time last year CBD and cannabis stocks were wildly overvalued during their epic run into Sept. 2018. But after that bubble burst, and the fear of FDA enforcement set in over the past few months, CBD stocks now offer much more attractive discounts for traders looking for good entry points.
The sure risk remains with FDA stating such products are not currently legal, but their ability to enforce any recalls may be little to none. As a new framework comes into clarity this fall then CBD stocks may offer a reverse play of ‘sell on rumor, and now buy on the news’.
