WASHINGTON – The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) issued the following statement from Carlos Gutiérrez, vice president of government affairs, upon California Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature of AB 45, legalizing cannabidiol (CBD) in dietary supplements, food, and cosmetics.

“CHPA thanks Governor Newsom for signing AB 45 into law. There is strong consumer and commercial interest in CBD and hemp-derived products, and we applaud California for its leadership in creating a regulatory pathway to meet consumer demand, all while protecting the public from potentially unsafe products.

CHPA continues to advocate for legislation allowing CBD to become a legally marketed dietary supplement ingredient and will work with federal and state government leaders to develop a regulatory pathway.”
