In his WeedWeek column, Dan Mitchell finds the CBD business is up and arms about the bogus Covid-19 related claims some purveyors are making. And the FDA is on the case.
The CBD industry is filled with fly-by-night operators trying to exploit the product’s popularity, which began in earnest right around when states began legalizing cannabis. Besides making unfounded or shaky health claims, some of them sell products labelled CBD, which don’t contain CBD. Some dub products “organic,” even when they don’t adhere to organic standards — which is against the law. Some CBD products have been found adulterated with potentially harmful ingredients.
