The CBD industry lacks many regulations, making it one of the most frustrating industries to produce products. Now, the FDA is cracking down on companies that include CBD in consumable products.
The FDA states: “The FDA has not found adequate information showing how much CBD can be consumed, and for how long, before causing harm. This is particularly true for vulnerable populations like children and those who are pregnant. People should be aware of the potential risks associated with the use of CBD products.”
The FDA has sent warning letters to the following companies:
The primary concern is that the marketing of the foods and beverages produced by these companies is misleading. Consumers may mistake them for traditional products and accidentally consume CBD. This is especially concerning for children and pregnant women.
Hopefully, these new measures will encourage CBD companies to market CBD use in their products explicitly.
In the meantime–although it’s always important–thoroughly examining foods and beverages’ packaging and ingredient lists is crucial, especially if you are pregnant or have children. Many foods in natural food stores or sections may contain CBD, especially gummies, candies, teas, cookies, and more.
