SUPPLIER PERSPECTIVES D I P S
CBD IN GROCERY
decide how it will be treated, with many allowing CBD as
part of a medical program, others legalizing it and four
states banning it altogether, McBride Stark says.
However, Ashley Grace, CMO of Denver-based Hemp-Fusion, is optimistic that the “FDA will announce some
form of regulations in the next year, which will finally allow CBD to expand into the grocery category unfettered.”
Barring the Buzzword
The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill could very well mark the
first step toward nationwide marijuana legalization, but
CBD advocates should caution against lumping cannabis
and CBD into the same retail category, advises Blake Patterson, co-founder and president of hemp category management provider MarketHub Retail Services, based in Denver.
Because CBD is so new and obscure to the average
consumer, Patterson says, introduction to the category
typically exposes several pertinent questions:
• Is this pot?
• Is this illegal?
• Will this get me high?
• Will I fail a drug test?
For cannabis, the answer to each of these is yes, but the
same is untrue for CBD.
“If the first four questions from a consumer are all of
those things, that means that there’s a distinction that
they’re looking for,” Patterson says. “So if we confuse the
two in any situation, then we’re just adding to customer
confusion, and that means not the death of a category, but
not realizing the opportunity of a category.”
Heed the Red Flags
Hemp-derived product terminology may, for now, be subject to a company’s will, but there are certainly several
federal regulations that lack that same flexibility, particularly in terms of product labeling and sourcing.
Per the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products must be derived
from industrial hemp that was cultivated in the U.S., ideally by a USDA-backed crop rather than one with only
state-level protection, according the Hemp Industry Daily
report, which further cautions business owners at every
level to keep meticulous records to prove the products
they produce or carry are derived from legal hemp.
Fairway Market, which recently launched its own line
of hemp-derived CBD products, said it took every precaution possible when researching the category, sourcing its
