Washington Ag Department: Hemp CBD Foods Are Illegal

In a rules update posted this month to the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) website, state officials have clarified that hemp-derived CBD is not allowed as a food ingredient or additive. The clarification comes as hemp entrepreneurs and enthusiasts anxiously await federal CBD regulations from the FDA — expected sometime in the coming weeks or months — in the wake of the plant’s recent federal legalization under the 2018 Farm Bill.

Despite hemp’s legal status, its myriad uses face more scrutiny as federal CBD rules and regulations are developed.

“To be clear,” the update reads in bold print, “CBD is not currently allowed as a food ingredient, under federal and state law.”
