Drinks containing CBD being are trendy, beverages with the stuff in them still haven’t been easy to find. A bill making its way through Sacramento may change the gridlock and confusion brought on by the federal Food and Drug Administration.
- Last week the bill passed through the Assembly Appropriations Committee, unanimously.
- It would permit the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD in both foods and supplements, regardless of what the FDA decides.
- Regulation has been “severely limiting Californians’ access to a product that many consumers believe substantially improves their health and wellness,” said Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters), who sponsored the bill.
- The L.A. Department of Health took a similar step. It becomes effective July 1.
