Bi-Partisan House Bills Re-Introduced To Regulate Hemp-Derived CBD

Two Bills Sponsored By Reps. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Angie Craig (D-MN) Would Require FDA To Utilize Existing Regulatory Frameworks For CBD As Dietary Supplements And Foods

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Representative Morgan Griffith (R-VA), with lead Democratic co-sponsor, Rep. Angie Craig (D-MN), re-introduced two bills in the U.S. House that would require the Food and Drug Administration to regulate hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD): The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2023, would subject hemp extract products to the regulatory framework for dietary supplements; while the CBD Product Safety and Standardization Act of 2023, would establish regulations for CBD as a food and beverage additive.

The bills’ filings follow on the heels of FDA’s recent announcement asking Congress to work with the agency to develop a regulatory framework for CBD. 

“The FDA has made it clear that legislative action by Congress is needed to solve its CBD regulatory problem and these two bi-partisan bills re-introduced by Reps. Griffith and Craig serve as the solution. The FDA’s inaction over the past four years has had a devastating impact on U.S. hemp growers, and has left thousands of unregulated products on the marketplace, raising health and safety concerns for consumers. The U.S. Hemp Roundtable is grateful to Rep. Griffith for his steadfast leadership on behalf of the hemp industry, and we are proud to work closely with him, Rep. Craig and other original co-sponsors on this critical legislation that is integral for hemp farmers, CBD producers and consumers,” said Jonathan Miller, U.S. Hemp Roundtable General Counsel.

Rep. Griffith previously served as lead Republican sponsor on both bills and now champions the legislation following the retirement of former lead sponsors Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Kathleen Rice (D-NY). The Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2023 was re-introduced by Rep. Griffith along with 12 of the 46 original 2021-2022 cosponsors
