It’s the darling of the dietary supplement and food & beverage industries; there are thousands of products already on the market, and millions of Americans are consuming it—or interested in it. But is it legal to prescribe and sell? Is it safe?
Tune in to this highly informative, 1-hour webinar to learn the following from one of the authors of the landmark Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, a highly regarded expert on dietary supplement legal and regulatory issues and president of one of the trade associations deeply involved in the hemp/CBD marketplace:
  • Is CBD legal to prescribe and sell?
  • What about the passage of the 2018 farm bill that legalized hemp?
  • What is the current regulatory status of CBD?
  • Why isn’t FDA acting quickly to legalize supplements containing CBD?
  • Is legislative relief for CBD on the way?
  • CBD safety: It’s complicated
  • What are the risks of recommending or selling CBD?
  • Am I legally liable if I choose to sell CBD products?
  • What you should look for when stocking your pharmacy with CBD products

Loren will provide the latest update on the highly dynamic and complicated regulatory status of hemp and CBD products as dietary supplements, as well as what naturopaths can expect from both Congress and the Food and Drug Administration in 2020. Additionally, he’ll discuss the legal risk that might practitioners face if they choose to recommend and stock CBD products in their pharmacies, as well as what they should look for if they choose to stock them.
