Hemp-CBD infused products have taken the consumer market by storm, but their legality is not a foregone conclusion after the 2018 Farm Bill and operating in the Hemp-CBD space presents a variety of risks. This webinar will cover the 2018 Farm Bill, FDA regulation of hemp and Hemp-CBD after the 2018 Farm Bill, California’s regulation of Hemp-CBD, and product liability risks for manufacturers, distributors and retailers of CBD products. We’ll wrap up our conversation by providing some tips on how to manage risk in this complicated space, including distribution of Hemp-CBD products across state lines.
