Our attorneys track regulatory risks of selling hemp CBD products across state lines

Though the FDA claims selling and marketing most Hemp CBD products is illegal many states have adopted varied legal approaches to regulating these products.

Some states allow manufacturing and selling all Hemp CBD products, including foods, dietary supplements, smokable products, and cosmetics. Other states strictly prohibit producing or selling any Hemp CBD products other than for “medical treatment.” A number of states ban Hemp CBD foods and dietary supplements but allow Hemp CBD cosmetics. And a handful of states allow Hemp CBD foods and dietary supplements but prohibit or restrict processing or manufacturing Hemp CBD smokables.

At the same time, many states that have legalized the sale of Hemp CBD products have imposed their own Hemp CBD labeling and testing requirements.

This patchwork of state-by-state regulations forces manufacturers and distributors of Hemp CBD products to limit sales to states in which these products are deemed lawful, while requiring them to know and abide by the wide range of regulations within each state.

Our team of Hemp CBD attorneys track states’ laws and regulations pertaining to the sale of Hemp CBD products. We provide our clients with a legal overview of Hemp CBD ingestibles (foods, beverages, dietary supplements and other consumable goods for humans), smokable products (dried flower, vaping products and cigarettes) and cosmetics (salves, lotions and other topicals) in states where they sell their products.
