Natural Products Expo West, with its 88,000 attendees in 2019, is the place to find trending and notable finished products in the U.S. health and nutrition marketplace. In this podcast, Sandy Almendarez and Josh Long of Natural Products INSIDER discuss an ingredient that dominated the conversations at Expo West: CBD.
Among their talking points:
Quality/standards initiatives in the hemp-based CBD market;
The murky regulatory and legal landscape, despite passage of the 2018 Farm Bill; and
The recent revelation that FDA’s commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, M.D., is leaving the agency just days after he advised lawmakers on Capitol Hill that he was “deeply focused” on CBD issues.
