Thriving Amid Uncertainty In The CBD Market

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

CBD is popping up in everything from syrups to sports bras, and retailers worldwide are clamoring to meet consumer demand for the nonintoxicating cannabinoid. But in order to capitalize on the trend, entrepreneurs must navigate a confusing gauntlet of health and safety regulations in the U.S. and abroad. 
In this talk, Hemp Industry Daily editor Kristen Nichols lays out the current legal state of play for a booming CBD industry awaiting guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on how the product can be produced and sold. Are CBD regulations a hot mess? Sure. Are there opportunities awaiting folks willing to endure the constant confusion? Absolutely.
You’ll glean insights on: Why the FDA is slow-walking its rules on CBD, Making CBD uncertainty a business advantage & How to avoid common mistakes that get CBD producers in trouble.
