Jun 13, 2023

Advertising and Regulation of CBD and Other Hemp-Cannabinoid Products 

Vicente partner Cassia Furman and counsel Andrea Golan are slated present “Advertising and Regulation of CBD and Other Hemp-Cannabinoid Products” on Tuesday, June 20 at 12 p.m. ET. The webinar is hosted by myLawCLE and the Federal Bar Association.  

Program Summary 

State and federal law governing the manufacture and sale of hemp cannabinoid products is complex, contradictory, and frequently a moving target. Operators in this space must navigate this challenging regulatory landscape at every point in the supply chain from cultivation to ultimate retail sale. When it comes to the advertising of hemp products, operators must abide by both federal law and the patchwork of hemp product advertising rules and regulations under state law. 

This course will cover federal oversight for marketing and advertising claims under the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act (“FFDCA”) and the Federal Trade Commission Act. The FFDCA is the primary federal law regulating most foods, dietary supplements, cosmetics, drugs, medical devices, tobacco products, while the FTC has primary responsibility for the advertising of dietary supplements. This course will cover permissible marketing claims based on product category, the role of testimonials/consumer reviews, FDA warning letters, substantiation requirements, and enforcement trends. Under state law, the course will cover themes and trends in State CBD/cannabinoid advertising regulations, including the most recently enacted state laws with advertising restrictions. In addition to federal and state law and regulation, advertisers must also consider social media platform advertising policies for hemp products and the emerging role of AI and advertising. This course will discuss these current topics as well as best practices when advertising and marketing hemp products.
