On December 20, 2018 the President signed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (“Farm Bill”).  This law is groundbreaking because it removes hemp (containing less than .3% THC) from the purview of the Controlled Substances Act. The FDA will now have an expanded role in regulating these products– including CBD – will be subject to the same regulations and requirements as other non-cannabis FDA-regulated products.

As the industry navigates and creates this “new normal” regulatory environment, it is more important than ever to have experienced legal advisors on your team.
