WASHINGTON— Scott Melville, president and CEO of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) applauded the introduction of the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2021, that was introduced on Thursday. CHPA has also become part of a larger coalition of organizations who support the bill.

“We’re encouraged that this legislation was re-introduced so early in the new Congress and hope it remains a priority for lawmakers given the intense consumer demand and commercial interest in CBD-containing products. The continued lack of regulatory clarity along with insufficient oversight around hemp and hemp derived CBD has led to bad actors entering the marketplace, exposing consumers to potentially unsafe products that may lack consistency in product quality. This bipartisan legislation would be an important step forward and is consistent with CHPA’s 2019 citizen petition calling on FDA to utilize its existing authority and establish a lawful regulatory pathway for responsible manufacturers to bring dietary supplements containing CBD to market,” said Melville.
