There’s a lot of confusion and questions about CBD products and what it means for CBD-related industries, especially those in the food and beverage industry. The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the “Farm Bill,” removed industrial hemp and products derived from it, including CBD, from the Schedule I list of drugs under the Controlled Substances Act. Which means industrial hemp is no longer illegal at the federal level. So things should be easy, right?
Wrong. In addition to the federal legal maze, states are adopting their own strategies for dealing with CBD in food and beverage.
In A Nutshell . . .
Under the Farm Bill’s safe harbor, hemp-derived CBD is legal, as long as the hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana) and complies with all applicable laws at the places of origin and final destination. But it gets more complicated for food and beverage stakeholders. The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has made it clear that:
On the state level, hemp-derived CBD is also highly regulated. While some states have adopted laws permitting and regulating the production, transport, distribution, and sale of hemp-based CBD products, the laws are evolving and differ from state to state. And almost all states have adopted the FDA prohibition on advertising and selling ingestible hemp-derived CBD products.
To be clear, the FDA prohibits companies from adding CBD to food, drinks, and supplements. The agency has expressed concerns about the safety of ingesting CBD. But it has also made a commitment to explore the regulatory framework that will allow hemp-derived CBD to become legally widely available to the public.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oils are low tetrahydrocannabinol products derived from Cannabis sativa that have become very popular over the past few years. Patients report relief for a variety of conditions, particularly pain, without the intoxicating adverse effects of medical marijuana. In June 2018, the first CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for treatment of rare, severe epilepsy, further putting the spotlight on CBD and hemp oils. There is a growing body of preclinical and clinical evidence to support use of CBD oils for many conditions, suggesting its potential role as another option for treating challenging chronic pain or opioid addiction. Care must be taken when directing patients toward CBD products because there is little regulation, and studies have found inaccurate labeling of CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol quantities. This article provides an overview of the scientific work on cannabinoids, CBD, and hemp oil and the distinction between marijuana, hemp, and the different components of CBD and hemp oil products. We summarize the current legal status of CBD and hemp oils in the United States and provide a guide to identifying higher-quality products so that clinicians can advise their patients on the safest and most evidence-based formulations. This review is based on a PubMed search using the terms CBD, cannabidiol, hemp oil, and medical marijuana. Articles were screened for relevance, and those with the most up-to-date information were selected for inclusion.
