GreenEntrepreneur Feature: Mitch McConnell Urges FDA To Ease CBD Regulations ‘Within 120 Days’

Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, a chief proponent of a hemp legalization provision in the 2018 Farm Bill, has put the pressure on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expedite the path for lawful marketing of hemp-derived CBD products. The CBD industry has been receptive to McConnell’s proposal to the FDA.

Jenelle Kim, founder and chief formulator of JBK Wellness Labs, speaks on the matter.


“Mitch McConnell’s move to call on the FDA is certainly a progressive and important move, which will help to open the doors for more people to reap the incredible benefits of CBD. It is vital to remember that hemp is one of the 50 Fundamental Herbs in Chinese Medicine and its healing properties date back 4000 years. For a medicinal herb that has been used responsibly for thousands of years as a treatment for pain and fatigue, among other conditions, to be given a larger opportunity is certainly a winning situation for all involved.”
