How Hemp and the 2018 Farm Bill effects FDA-regulated items

The 2018 Farm Bill explicitly preserved FDA’s authority to regulate products including cannabis or cannabis-derived compounds under the FD&C Act as well as section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act).


FDA deals with products having cannabis or cannabis-derived substances as it does any other FDA-regulated items– implying they’re subject to the exact same authorities as well as demands as FDA-regulated products having any other substance. This is true no matter whether the marijuana or cannabis-derived substances are categorized as hemp under the 2018 Farm Bill.
