NPA submits citizen’s petition demanding resolution on CBD issue
The petition is based on information presented to the US Food and Drug Administration in a meeting that the firm cbdMD had with the Agency. The petition states that FDA has hamstrung itself in its evaluation of CBD by declining to review existing safety data on the substance.
Review of existing safety information has languished
This results from a chicken and egg question that has plagued the regulatory resolution of the CBD issue from the opening of the market, which can be traced to the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, though state initiatives had opened some doors even before then.
In that time, FDA has taken the position that CBD is not a legal dietary ingredient because of its prior investigation as a drug. The Agency states that it has received no credible information that CBD containing products were on the market prior the 1994 grandfather date in DSHEA, which would make CBD an Old Dietary Ingredient, and thus not subject to the prior drug development provision.
That being the case, safety information submitted via NDI Notifications has not been reviewed in good faith by the Agency, in NPA’s and cbdMD’s view, because CBD would be disqualified in any event from being a legal dietary ingredient.
CbdMD claims that is has a significant amount of safety information developed at its own expense. The citizen’s petition claims the company has spend $1 million developing that safety substantiation. The company said it has an NDI Notification dossier ready to go, but doesn’t plan to submit it if the process is doomed from the start. Not only would it be futile, but it could expose the company to having some of its confidential data revealed to no good end.

CBD "Cannabidiol"- preclinical studies suggest that CBD may have therapeutic benefits in the treatment of various conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, rheumatoid arthritis, schizophrenia, diabetes, PTSD, alcoholism, strokes and cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other ailments. We request the HKSAR Government to provide us with clarity and transparency so that importers can safely bring CBD products into Hong Kong for sale and distribution. The latest statement from the FEHD (Food and Environmental Hygiene Department) is extremely vague and does not provide importers safety and peace of mind to import and distribute CBD products (even those certified to contain 0% THC).

CBD is being treated as a illegal drug and as a company 'Green Leaf Dispensary' have had enough of big companies like Facebook, eBay and Google denying us advertising or simply having a Facebook page or running auctions. I have been turned away by banks as well, it's about time these companies open their eyes and change their wrong outdated policies and accept that CBD is not an illegal drug. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 allowed Hemp derived CBD to be legal as long as it contained no more than 0.3% THC. This law also removed industrial hemp from the controlled substance list altogether, also excluding industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana. Now here is where the confusion starts about legality of CBD because CBD can be found in all cannabis plants including marijuana. This makes it very important for its legality that CBD only be derived from the hemp plant to be completely legal in all 50 US states. Marijuana derived CBD on the other hand varies in legality on a state by state basis because it is still a by product of the marijuana plant. Since the Hemp Farming Act of 2015, many forms of CBD products are available on the market today. CBD is infused into CBD lotions, CBD salves and CBD creams which are great for skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, acne, arthritis, and alleviating muscle pain. CBD oil or CBD wax cartridges can be vaporized and the effects are felt more instant this way which is great for people with anxiety, depression or any chronic disorders. There are CBD edibles such as CBD honey sticks and CBD gummy bears which both taste and work great. CBD tinctures are taken sublingually (under the tongue) and absorbed through the mucous membranes for faster absorption. CBD capsules can be easily ingested on a daily basis for people with chronic conditions. We are not selling illegal drugs and would like to be able to run advertising and auctions on the above mentioned sites.
