The complexities of CBD and immense demand for the compound.

The urgent need to clarify legal issues around CBD.

FDA’s enforcement activities to date and concerns recently expressed by the agency about consumption of CBD by pregnant women.

The success of DSHEA after 25 years.

And the pain points of the law, including the new dietary ingredient notification requirement.
