It’s an interesting conundrum. According to the federal government, putting CBD into food and drink products that are consumed — as opposed to topical applications — is illegal. Yet, many companies are continuing to introduce CBD-infused edibles and drinkables and there don’t seem to have been any mass arrests. The latest is a company called OKI which is debuting a line of CBD waters and teas in California and Colorado — two states where cannabidiol’s cousin marijuana is legal.
This Washington Post article tries to sort it all out but the bottom line is that the confusion persists on what is and isn’t legal and cautious suppliers and retailers might be smart to restrict their offerings to lotions and potions until things are settled.
