Unhappy The Crackdown on CBD in Food and Beverages Spreads To Oregon

Targeting CBD companies that make spurious health claims is one thing. Going after culinary experimentation is ridiculous.



Last week, Oregon's state liquor control board banned the addition of an increasingly popular ingredient to the alcohol beverages it regulates. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), which regulates both alcohol and cannabis in Oregon, announced it would ban the sale of alcohol drinks containing cannabidiol—commonly known as CBD—a substance found in cannabis.

The ban, which takes effect next week, was unexpected.

"Up to now, Oregon has been relatively permissive in its approach to CBD consumption," the East Oregonian reports. "In 2015, the state Legislature said hemp and marijuana could legally be added to foods."

In a September column, I reported on Washington State's decision to ban CBD sales by any retailer that's not a licensed cannabis shop. I noted Washington's move was just the latest example of a growing crackdown on CBD sales.

And I laid the blame for the increasing regulatory pressure on CBD sales squarely at the feet of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). States may be cracking down on CBD, but the FDA is providing directions.

For example, last year, the FDA ordered Long Trail, the Vermont brewer, to stop adding CBD to its beer. And just last month, the FDA announced it had sent warning letters to more than a dozen companies that make health claims about the CBD products they produce.

For example, the FDA alleges that Daddy Burt Hemp of Kentucky, which the agency says markets CBD oils and gummies through its website, claimed CBDs may be used to treat autism, a claim the agency questions.

Just as Washington State's crackdown on CBDs may have been spurred by the FDA, Oregon's move last week also appears to have been inspired by the FDA's aggressive stance. "To some degree, [the OLCC] is following in the footsteps of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration," the East Oregonian reported.

The OLCC isn't done yet, either. While the agency says it will begin penalizing anyone who continues to sell CBD-infused alcohol sellers in February, the agency is already looking to close a loophole that allows bars to add CBD oils to mixed drinks they serve.

"We're considering just outright saying that [CBD is] an adulterant for alcohol so you wouldn't just be able to mix the cocktails," OLCC chief Steve Marks told the East Oregonian.

Coalition Brewing, based in Portland, introduced its Two Flowers IPA, billed as the first CBD-infused beer produced and sold in Oregon, in 2016. If unscrupulous marketing lies at the heart of the growing pushback against CBD, then Coalition Brewing's marketing approach seemed to reside at the opposite end of that spectrum.

In an excellent piece in October, a site dedicated to beer journalism, Diana Hubble described Coalition Brewing as "careful not to overstate the effect [Two Flowers] might have on consumers" and unwilling to position its CBD-infused beer as "some sort of miracle panacea." (I reached out to Coalition but learned the brewery closed last month. Reports suggest Coalition may have been the only brewer of CDB-infused beers in the state.)

Despite Oregon's crackdown and the demise of Coalition Brewing, CBD-infused beer is having a moment. Last year, craft beer giant Lagunitas introduced Hi-Fi Hops, a sparkling water that contains CBD or THC—the latter of which is the thing in cannabis that gets you high.

Earlier this year, "Libertarian iconoclast" Mason Hembree sold his Colorado brewery to a cannabis company that also now owns Hembree's "patent-pending process for infusing… CBD into beer in a cost-effective way."

Last month, Hop & Hemp Brewing, a London-based brewer, introduced a very low (0.5%) ABV, CBD-infused beer. Also last month, a cannabis website touted CBD-infused beer as "the next BIG thing."

As I wrote in September, I have no problem with the FDA moving to crack down on fishy claims made by a few CBD sellers. But while targeting of CBD foods should be the exception, it's increasingly becoming the rule.

What's ridiculous is people putting CBD in everything, to cash in. It's soon to be the next snake oil, except that it's pharmacologically active and affects the metabolism of other substances - that's a bad thing.

FDA = Sh-thole organization.

They have zero credibility. Kind of like the FAA.

Nice post Rocky Mtn Squid!

I made a statement a while back saying that CBD oil that is not FDA approved and not bought at a pharmacy would soon land you in jail.

As usual I was told to don my tinfoil hat so I did...LOL

CBD oil is illegal and a felony without a prescription.
Well here it is in the news, maybe some folks could benefit from some tinfoil in their lives too.

Just like the vaping industry mid 2000 anyone making health claims were told to shut down. So it has nothing to do with cannabis perse. "health" claims is the catcher here and, regardless what we say, there is no scientific evidence to prove those claims.

Research maybe? Does he even know what an adulterant is? I bet his cocktails are great.

Question

"Save the Children"

Normally we say that sarcastically because politicians use it shamelessly, to justify whatever new bullshit they're pulling.

But - what happens if you drink 2 or 3 of the beer+CBD bottles ?

What happens to an inexperienced drinker or an under-age drinker ?

What's the buzz or body feeling like ?

It’s probably not from the CBD. Research maybe?

Damnit I would have liked to try the CBD beer before they pulled it from the shelves. I'm guessing it's not psychoactive considering CBD by itself isn't psychoactive.

I made ganja beer once. A friend and I sacrificed a couple ounces of the best ganja. Added it to the 5 gallon carboy at the start of fermentation. Sort of like dry hopping. Let it soak in the wort for a couple weeks until it was ready to bottle. The theory was the alcohol in the beer would extract the cannbinoids from the ganja. We used very little hops, most of the flavor was the cannabis. It was great, really smooth. You could taste the ganja but it wasn't strong or off-putting. Not really psychedelic, more of a body high you felt below the waist. Wouldn't recommend operating motor vehicles.

I tried this when it was available. Pretty good tasting IPA. They had BATFE approval but it was only 4.2mg per pint. It didn't affect my buzz any stronger or differently than normal.
