Learn to Evaluate And Mitigate the Risks Presented by CBD Business Opportunities

Cannabidiol (CBD) has captured the attention of consumers and industry – and why not, CBD is found in products as diverse as cosmetics, dietary supplements, pet treats, vape pens, and investigational pharmaceuticals. Manufacturers, marketers, retailers, and consumers have shown increased interest in products containing CBD.  However, much confusion remains about the federal legal and regulatory status of the ingredient, potential sources, and the various types of products in which companies include the ingredient.

Derived from cannabis, CBD has also generated equal amounts of controversy and confusion. Chief among stakeholders’ concerns is the ingredient’s status under federal law. Federal regulators have staked out their positions, and industry groups have established their own. 

This session by expert speaker Will Woodlee will frame the issues in plain language, helping you understand the merits and vulnerabilities of these competing positions, the factors that matter in determining the status of a particular CBD-containing product, and the issues that remain unsettled.

The session will also focus on explaining the key legal positions taken by the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Administration and their implications for the CBD market. You will be better informed to navigate the complex federal rules that determine the legal and regulatory status of CBD and various CBD-containing products.  You will be better able to evaluate and mitigate the risks presented by certain CBD business opportunities.  You will get risk-mitigation strategies for operating in the CBD industry, and understand the legal questions that remain unanswered and require continued monitoring.You will also gain the background needed to monitor and contextualize new developments in federal law, regulation, and policy impacting the CBD market.
