Open Book Extracts (OBX; Roxboro, NC) has announced its founding membership in One Hemp, a coalition of CBD industry stakeholders that uses a scientific and data-backed approach to appeal to Congress and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to arrive at sensible dietary supplement regulation. OBX is joined by BayMedica, Charlotte's Web, Hemp Beverage Alliance, Kazmira, Mad Tasty, and WYLD, among many others.
According to the press release, One Hemp submitted to Congressional leaders comprehensive new insights and safety studies in response to a Request for Information from the House and Senate committees of jurisdiction. “One Hemp is confident that the time for federal CBD policy reform has arrived during this Congressional session and is fully prepared to be the leading subject-matter resource for bipartisan action to support Congress and collaborate with the FDA,” said Dave Neundorfer, OBX chief executive officer, in a press release. “One Hemp advocates for industry requirements to disclose hemp-derived product warning statements addressing the FDA's public risk concerns and product safety and non-impairment recognition at certain dose levels based on credible scientific data.”
One Hemp intends to be a resource to policymakers as they develop a regulatory framework that ensures the access to CBD that 45 million Americans rely on. OBX has also committed to continue offering Congress science-backed policy solutions.
