How great is that to see?! It isn't all too often that you see a consortium of industry trade groups link arms, and I am glad to see this effort.

These groups wrote letters to Rep Schrader of Oregon and Rep Griffith of Virginia to encourage the FDA to put it's weight behind creating consumer friendly rules regarding the emerging hemp CBD industry:the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), Hemp Industries Association (HIA), Midwest Hemp Council, National Cannabis Industry Association, National Grocers Association, United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), US Hemp Authority, US Hemp Building Association, US Hemp Growers Association (USHGA), US Hemp Roundtable, Virginia Hemp Coalition, Vote Hemp, We Are For Better Alternatives (WAFBA), and the Wisconsin Hemp Alliance.

One group that is missing was the Natural Products Association (NPA). They do not agree with the wording of HR8179. Namely regarding the lack of verbiage relating to a safe level of daily consumption of CBD, and that the bill does not promote the public good.

In my opinion, CBD is remarkably safe when taken separately from medications that affect liver enzymes, as CBD does utilize those enzymes in during its processes within our bodies. You should always consult a physician prior to making changes to your diet and supplementation routine to make sure you are in good health.

I do not agree with the NPA with their assessment regarding the legal standing of CBD products. This particular group seems to be a giant party pooper, for lack of a better term, when it comes to allowing for the freedom of people to research and consume products for themselves.

Multiple hemp and dietary supplement industry trade groups have written to Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) to thank them for their leadership on the hemp-CBD issue.
