THE EMBARGO ON CBD-INFUSED FOOD + DRINK IS ON
As of July 1, City health inspectors will now look for CBD (cannabidiol) food and beverages as part of routine safety inspections, though they won’t begin issuing violations until Oct. 1. Violators could be subject to fines from $250 to $600. Although CBD is otherwise legal, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved it for use as an additive to food and drink. If your establishment is found to carry food and/or drink with added CBD, products will be bagged and prohibited from sale, to be returned to the supplier or discarded. For more info, click here.
