Legislators propose bill for the use of CBD in food and dietary supplements

USA

Jan 30, 2020

The bill, introduced by House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-MN), is a simple, three-page bill that would explicitly include hemp-derived CBD in the definition of a dietary supplement.

The bill amends the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act by carving out a specific exemption for hemp-derived CBD in the so-called ‘exclusionary clause’ found in that legislation.  This portion of DSHEA states that if “an article” was investigated as a drug prior to coming to market as a dietary supplement or as part of a food, then a drug it must remain and the other uses are precluded.
