California’s Sherman Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Law prohibits the manufacture and sale of adulterated food, beverages, and cosmetics. Bill AB-45, signed on Oct. 6, amends the law so that food, beverages, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and pet food are not considered adulterated by the inclusion of industrial hemp, provided the hemp comes from “a state or country that has an established and approved industrial hemp program.”
California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed legislation that allows for the manufacturing and sale of hemp-infused food and beverage products, diverging from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s position that it is not federally legal to include CBD in food and dietary supplements.
The bill also outlines the creation of a registration program through the California Department of Public Health for hemp-infused food, beverages, and cosmetic products, as well as raw hemp extract.
Additionally, the law prohibits manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of industrial hemp products from making untrue health-related statements around consuming industrial hemp, cannabinoids, extracts, or other derivatives.
Q: Do these CBD range products have medical benefits?
A: No. Our CBD skincare products have no medical benefits. They don’t relieve emotional and physical stress. Nor will they heal any skin diseases (such as eczema or psoriasis).
A: Nope. CBD is a compound that will not make you feel high. The compound that does is called THC, and it’s a psychoactive cannabinoid (fancy name for a chemical that makes you feel intoxicated). Some cannabis plants will have a high concentration of CBD and little THC – and vice versa. But CBD products are usually THC-free, or it’s only present in trace amounts.
