CBD News Aggregator – The NIHC, which provides high-quality networking and resources for its members, made the comments following a listening session with the FDA‘s CBD Working Group in which members of NIHC’s Consumer Protection Task Force emphasised the importance of establishing basic safety standards and regulations in order to protect consumers in this new and emerging industry.
The comments intend to help the FDA establish a policy of enforcement discretion on CBD products.
The NIHC’s mission is to help advance the hemp industry through safe and reliable products, says board member Patrick Atagi.
Atagi commented: “NIHC members support safety standards for our industry. We are well aware of the reports of inconsistent products that do not contain the ingredients listed on the label, those that feature unsubstantiated health claims, or which contain excessive THC levels or other contaminants. Our mission is to help advance the hemp industry through safe, reliably manufactured products that consumers can rely on and we’re glad to partner with FDA to bring this to fruition.”
