Congress introduces Bill to legalize CBD as a dietary ingredient

On September 4, 2020, Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) introduced bill H.R. 8179, “to make hemp, cannabidiol derived from hemp, and any other ingredient derived from hemp lawful for use under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act as a dietary ingredient in a dietary supplement, and for other purposes.”

Titled the ‘‘Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020,” the Bill would make hemp, cannabidiol derived from hemp, and any other ingredient derived from hemp shall be lawful for use under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.) as a dietary ingredient in a dietary supplement, provided that such dietary supplement complies with

  • (1) the requirements for a dietary supplement 12 which contains a new dietary ingredient in section 13 413 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 14 (21 U.S.C. 350b); and
  • (2) all other applicable requirements for a die-16 tary supplement in the Federal Food, Drug, and 17 Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 301 et seq.) and the Fair 18 Packaging and Labeling Act (15 U.S.C. 1451 et 19 seq.).
