SEATTLE (AP) — The hemp industry still has work ahead to win legal status for hemp-derived cannabidiol, or CBD oil, as an ingredient in food or dietary supplements despite the big farm bill President Donald Trump signed this week designating hemp as an agricultural crop.

CBD oils have become increasingly popular in lotions, tinctures and foods, but their legal status has been murky and the Food and Drug Administration has sent warning letters to some companies making health claims for CBD.
====================================
The MJ industry, which includes major soft drink firms like Coke & Pepsi, are studying future CBD-based products as health drinks. Money & lobbyists vs the FDA - any bets on which one wins?

My money is on the lobbyists. They have more clout than fact, rationality, and sound economics.
