The CBD beverage industry is likely to grow and expand into more subcategories, including sports and recovery beverages and alcohol-CBD combinations. Dietitians who counsel clients on the use of CBD beverages can expect more transparency from companies regarding CBD source and content, guidance on dosing, information on bioavailability, and an expanded marketplace once the FDA establishes regulations.12 For now, inconsistencies in product quality, including declarations of CBD content, add to the challenge of guiding consumers toward responsible choices.
Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RDN, FAND, a holistic cannabis practitioner, culinary nutritionist, and owner of Jannabis Wellness in Melrose, Massachusetts, says, “We are beginning to learn about the variety of health benefits of CBD to help alleviate pain, anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, inflammation, depression, and possibly autism. It isn’t a cure-all, but it can improve or relieve a lot of conditions in a more natural way. Some of my clients have been able to decrease their use of antianxiety and pain medications after adding cannabis to their regimen.”
Regulatory Status in Flux
The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the list of Schedule 1 narcotics (where it previously was categorized with marijuana) and legalized its cultivation, opening the door for production of topical and other products containing CBD. The Farm Bill retains FDA’s authority to regulate the sale and marketing of CBD-containing foods. However, under the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act, because CBD is an active pharmaceutical ingredient in an approved drug, Epidiolex, food (or beverage) products containing CBD can’t be introduced into interstate commerce, that is, manufactured in one state and sold in another, according to the FDA.6
The FDA issued warning letters in late November 2019 to companies regarding CBD in their food and beverage products and for higher amounts of THC than are stated on labels or legally permitted. In a November 26, 2019, consumer notice, the FDA stated that “under the FD&C Act, it’s illegal to introduce into interstate commerce any human or animal food to which certain drug ingredients, such as CBD, have been added. In addition, the FDA isn’t aware of any basis to conclude that CBD is GRAS [generally recognized as safe] among qualified experts for its use in human or animal food. There also is no food additive regulation which authorizes the use of CBD as an ingredient in human food or animal food, and the agency is not aware of any other exemption from the food additive definition that would apply to CBD. CBD is therefore an unapproved food additive and its use in human or animal food violates the FD&C Act for reasons that are independent of its status as a drug ingredient.”7 Individual states have passed legislation allowing the sale of CBD products.
“I recommend only choosing products made from organically grown ingredients,” Bissex says. “Hemp and cannabis are bioaccumulators that gather chemicals, including toxins and pollutants, from the soil through their extensive root network.” Of interest, Bissex shares that hemp was planted after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster to decontaminate radioactive soil.
The CBD dosage in beverages currently on the market generally ranges from 10 mg to about 25 mg per serving. “It’s important to ask clients how much they’re drinking,” Bissex says. “Someone who is having several drinks a day may be getting much more than the minimally effective dose of CBD.” The form of CBD, namely, conventional vs nano-enhanced, impacts the speed of absorption and action.
