Democrats and Republicans are uniting to promote hemp-derived CBD in new House legislation that would pave the way for the substance to be marketed as a dietary supplement instead of a drug.

Comer described the issue of CBD as “uniquely bipartisan,” because liberals support the hemp industry for offering environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic while conservatives want to limit government control of private businesses.

Peterson and Comer were joined by Reps. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) in backing the bill.

This bill requires the Food and Drug Administration to regulate a hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) product as a dietary supplement instead of as a drug. The bill also allows the introduction into interstate commerce of a food with added hemp-derived CBD.

There is one summary for H.R.5587. Bill summaries are authored by CRS.

The Department of Agriculture must report on market and regulatory barriers for producers operating under its domestic hemp production program.
