In rise of recent popularity of the buying and selling of CBD, more requirements for for CBD labeling should be mandated. In this post, we’ll cover some of the reasons why the mandates are needed and reasons why the CBD labeling requirements should be in place across the United States.

Confusion at the Airports

Though CBD is legal in the United States due to the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018, there is still confusion across the nation. For example, one article mentions the confusion of airport attendants as they question whether to confiscate CBD products from passengers. In regards to labeling of CBD products, they state:

The question arose about how TSA officers would know your product contains less than 0.3% THC. Of course, they could read the label, but imagine the lines that would form while they’re squinting at the contents, assuming it is marked that way. And therein lies some of the problem.

This brings a real concern. Further, the article mentions, “Not every CBD product has it (clear label), so you may need to request it.” The confusion of labeling of CBD products seems to be a real concern. After all, how is airport staff supposed to accurately assess the products and determine whether a product meets the legal guidelines of having THC? The governing bodies need to adapt to the market realities.

It’s Time for Change

It’s time to ensure accurate CBD labeling requirements are in place across the nation. Oftentimes, using QR technology this labeling requirement can provide more clarity for lab results and be trained to staff (such as airport staff). Though, in order for this change to have an impact, it must be mandated across the US– at the federal-level. The FDA has provided a presentation, though, has mandated action across the USA, yet.
