Fiscal Detail and Notes
Any additional costs to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry as a result of clarifications to the rules regarding food and food products containing hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) and changes to the definition of "industrial hemp" to "hemp" are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
Although the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has indicated that it plans to review its regulatory authority regarding hemp-derived products at a later date, it has not given any indication of a timeline or guidance on possible revisions. Any rules regarding CBD that conflict with the USFDA's current guidance could result in potential future costs if subject to federal enforcement actions.
