The fast-growing CBD market — projected to reach an astonishing $20 billion in the U.S. by 2024 — poses an exciting growth outlook for business owners.
However, specific and clear universal CBD labeling requirements haven’t caught up to this enormous segment growth.
This lack of clarity does create a challenge for brand owners, as diligence is needed to meet evolving requirements on the state and federal levels (and avoid costly lawsuits or violations). But it also creates an opportunity for brands to establish themselves as a trustworthy, knowledgeable producer in a crowded market.
This article is not meant to be a replacement for a thorough reading and understanding of state regulations and FDA guidelines. Rather, this is a great starting point for brand owners to:
- Familiarize themselves with the general regulations.
- Understand how requirements can differ; a CBD supplement label for a product sold in Indiana will have different requirements than a CBD edible brownie sold in Oregon.
- Access state, federal and industry resources for learning more about requirements.
A clear and compliant CBD label is achievable for your product — let’s start laying your foundation.
