CBD Snapshot Magazine Releases Statement on FDA Public Hearing

Editor-At-Large Brooke Alpert comments on future for CBD

DALLAS – June 4, 2019 /Canna Newswire/ – Solidifying that cannabidiol (CBD) is still an unknown, on Friday, May 31, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held its first-ever public hearing on CBD in the consumer marketplace. CBD Snapshot, the premiere newsstand magazine and online platform for consumers curious about CBD, closely followed the hearing to gain insight on what the 12-member FDA panel was seeing from the 100 people presenting during the ten-hour session.

“Last Friday’s hearing on CBD solidified there is a high demand from the public for good quality CBD products,” said CBD Snapshot Editor-at-Large, Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., CDN. “The CBD market is filled with incredible products that can help many people feel better, but it’s important to be able to make an educated choice. This hearing has reaffirmed our mission at CBD Snapshot to help our readers and consumers in general become more informed about what CBD is and what it can actually do.”

Alpert continued, “We’ve seen an unparalleled industry boom since the 2018 Farm Bill authorized legal, domestic hemp production. It was highly beneficial to hear from the numerous speakers on Friday who called for quality, safety, and efficacy standards for CBD products. By streamlining the standards around CBD, we will start to see consumers have a better understanding and willingness to try CBD products.”

As a publication and online CBD information hub, CBD Snapshot says it will work through the data from the hearing and help consumers understand the current marketplace. The more than 500 people crowded in the hearing – including doctors, concerned parents, cannabis business owners, health experts and more – further emphasize that CBD is a huge movement that has the potential to impact a lot of people. The resounding takeaway was the need for CBD standards to ensure that consumers are offered the best quality and guidance on how to incorporate CBD into their lives.

Members of the public are invited to submit their comments online until July 2, 2019. To follow along in the conversation and stay updated on all things CBD, subscribe to CBD Snapshot now at cbdsnapshot.com.
