Let’s talk hemp CBD safety – podcast

Safety and tox work are setting themselves up to be mandatory practices for hemp CBD businesses.

What’s the story with CBD safety? The United Nations reported it’s completely safe for human consumption. The US FDA says otherwise. INSIDER senior editor Todd Runestad sits down with Stuart Tomc, senior VP business development, for CV Sciences—the only brand to have submitted a self-GRAS dossier to the FDA. Listen up as they discuss:

  • How has the market changed from before the first farm bill in 2014 and after this second farm bill in 2018
  • Why the CV Sciences’ self-GRAS for CBD matters
  • Considerations that any CBD company needs to go through to firmly establish themselves on the right side of the law, even as the law evolves.
