cbd labeling laws

A. At the federal level, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334, (the 2018 Farm Bill) was signed into law on Dec. 20, 2018. Among other things, this new law changes certain federal authorities relating to the production and marketing of hemp, defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” These changes include removing hemp from the CSA, which means that cannabis plants and derivatives that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis are no longer controlled substances under federal law.

17. Does the FDA object to the clinical investigation of cannabis for medical use?

Research and Expanded Access

The agency has and will continue to monitor the marketplace and take action as needed to protect the public health against companies illegally selling cannabis and cannabis-derived products that can put consumers at risk and that are being marketed for therapeutic uses for which they are not approved. At the same time, FDA recognizes the potential therapeutic opportunities that cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds could offer and acknowledges the significant interest in these possibilities. FDA continues to believe that the drug approval process represents the best way to help ensure that safe and effective new medicines, including any drugs derived from cannabis, are available to patients in need of appropriate medical therapy. The Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is committed to supporting the development of new drugs, including cannabis and cannabis-derived drugs, through the investigational new drug (IND) and drug approval process (see Question #16).

The CBD market is considered to be a growing industry. The growth potential in the United States alone could reach billions in sales. This obviously means a growth in the use of cannabidiol products as well. This being said, businesses should be particularly considerate of the packaging and labeling of CBD products. It can be challenging to navigate labeling CBD and hemp CBD products since there are no CBD-specific regulations prescribed by the federal government. It is important to be updated with requirements and local regulations when it comes to packaging and labeling these CBD products since these regulations can quickly change nationwide.


CBD Companies should consider the best packaging choices for their products. These kinds of packaging include child-resistant containers, glass bottles, and airtight packaging in colored containers, to ensure that contents are protected from artificial light or UV rays.


Moving on to labeling, the FDA has specific regulations for the use of supplement labels and food labels. This also covers regulations that include food products including those related to food additives. Products that contain CBD are subject to different labeling regulations. States that allow the sale of CBD products, although having varying regulations, require companies to strictly follow CBD labeling regulations that are in accordance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act, also known as the FDCA. The FDCA requires several basic elements when labeling CBD products, which we will be getting to know more about in this section of the article.

Melanie Neff says:

You should be fine with that as long as you list everything in your CBD product, but I am not a lawyer, and I’m strictly going off the FDA guidelines. And with all the confusion going on with CBD and cannabis labels right now, I would suggest that you contact the FDA to make sure you are doing everything correctly. Questions concerning the labeling of food products may be directed to the Food Labeling and Standards Staff (HFS-820), Office of Nutrition, Labeling, and Dietary Supplements, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, Food and Drug Administration, 5001 Campus Drive, College Park, MD 20740-3835, Telephone: (240) 402-2371. Hope this helps.

Thank you for the question. You can report products that are mislabeled to the FDA. You can call the FDA Consumer Complaint line for your state listed here. Or you can report it online at the FDA Safety Reporting Portal. I hope this helps. Let us know what you find out. Thanks for reading.

6. Disclosure of material facts

Since the FDA doesn’t currently allow the sale of CBD ingestible products, it’s important to note the labeling requirements on a state-by-state basis. Some states permit the sale of CBD in foods and dietary supplements but require specific label information and warning requirements. To help you understand where your product fits, the FDA has put together a list of the 26 most common questions about cannabis products and their regulations.

It’s a good idea to include the standard warnings for children and pregnant women as well as any complications for people taking other medications. It’s also a good idea to include a warning that users could fail a drug test if consuming hemp products as well.

The FDA has also sent out numerous warning letters to CBD companies trying to take advantage of the COVID 19 pandemic. received a letter a for violations stating the company had “claims on your website representing or implying that the products can mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19 in people.” The website has since been taken down.
