Once again, the FDA has “kicked the can” down the Hemp Road with their latest statement on January 26, 2023.
The FDA is failing to follow their legislative mandate to regulate hemp extract and CBD products. Instead, they are saying they will “work with Congress on a new way forward.”
They are using Epidiolex pharmaceutical tests and vague reference to their own conducted studies to say they just don’t know what to do, so they want Congress to do something.
Their statement applies to ingestible products like tinctures, gummies, etc. Nothing in their statement mentioned their prior statements in essence approving the use of Hemp Extract and CBD in topicals like our best-selling Hemp Freeze.
