A U.S. Congressman is sponsoring a bill which would allow CBD from hemp plants to be added to dietary supplements.
Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR-5) filed H.R. 8179 in the House of Representatives last week, the bill co-sponsored by Rep. Morgan Griffith (D-VA-9).
Also known as the “Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020,” the bill would make cannabidiol (CBD) and other hemp-derived products legal for use in a dietary supplement.
In a statement release, Rep. Griffith says he hopes the bill will help clear up confusion. “Hemp was historically an important crop for Virginia farmers, and dietary supplements made from it do not possess dangerous addictive qualities. Nevertheless, the current state of regulation creates confusion about its legal uses. I joined this bipartisan bill to provide certainty for hemp farmers that their crop may find legal uses.”
