As Forbes first reported, a new survey conducted in October by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) found that 76% of adults assume cannabidiol (CBD) has the government’s stamp of approval. Furthermore, of the 2,056 subjects surveyed, 53% believed that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates CBD.

Given the explosive popularity of hemp-derived products over the past year, the figure is somewhat unsurprising. And with the puzzling status of “decriminalized,” CBD consumers are increasingly seeing brands tout its therapeutic benefits.

Over the past several years, FDA has issued several warning letters to firms that market unapproved new drugs that allegedly contain cannabidiol ( CBD ). As part of these actions, FDA has tested the chemical content of cannabinoid compounds in some of the products

“As with any new industry, educating the public is important,” explained Ken Lawson, CEO of GoGenics, the parent company of CBD supplements brand FOCL. He also noted that the public tends to be confused by the FDA’s role in regulating cannabis-related products, such as CBD. “The truth is that the FDA is not authorized to review dietary supplements, including CBD,” Lawson told Observer.

With the current craze unleashing a slew of “CBD-infused” everything, from creams to gummy candy, many products fall outside the scope of FDA approval. This also means harder legal guidelines are needed to bring this category out of the federal agency’s “gray area.”

“It’s up to the manufacturers to take on the responsibility of ensuring quality for the general public,” Lawson said, pointing to FOCL’s sourcing and use of non-GMO, organic hemp. “We believe in transparency and want to ensure our customers can trust our product.”

  Vaping ban: Americans support teen ban, disagree on regulations A USA TODAY/Ipsos poll found more than 8 in 10 Americans agree people under 21 should not be able to legally buy vaping devices , opinions were split on whether to impose more restrictive policies. The poll said that 52% supported banning flavored vape juices, but only 20% of vapers favored a flavor ban.Older adults also favored more restrictive policies. Among survey respondents over the age of 55, 63% supported a vaping ban and 72% favored banning flavors. About one in three adults aged 18-34 favored banning vaping or banning flavors.

The FDA also tested these products for CBD content and found some that contained no cannabidiol. But FDA approval is no guarantee of safety or efficacy. Big Pharma, like Big Tobacco, routinely falsifies studies by hiding clinical trial data about adverse side effects and negative outcomes.

Last week, the Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ) approved Epidiolex® (cannabidiol, or CBD ), a The approval comes at the end of a four-year series of trials showing the benefits of CBD in But since medical marijuana products are still not subject to the same federal safety regulations that

As Observer previously reported, regulating CBD use has been a slow burn for the under-staffed FDA, which is in charge of vetting thousands of consumer products. In September, the government granted the first ever funding for CBD research to help determine the veracity of producers’ medical and wellness claims.

For now, the good news is that more CBD manufacturers are acknowledging the need for oversight of the rapidly growing industry.
