No one's really sure how to regulate this hemp food craze
At Joshua Hudson’s smoothie shop, a bohemian outpost called Twisted Smoothie, customers can add a 15 mg or 30 mg shot of cannabidiol, or CBD, to their blended drinks for a few extra dollars. They also can get a mini-lecture from Hudson on the virtues of the cannabis extract, found in both hemp and marijuana, which he and other fans claim can ease a range of health problems without making users high. Despite limited research on the compound’s health benefits, hemp CBD has become a nationwide health food craze. Congress recently primed the market for more growth when it legalized hemp farming and sales nationwide. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says businesses such as Hudson’s cafe are unlawfully introducing drugs into the food supply.
