California State Board Refuses to Answer Questions on Legality of CBP Products

Suggests Chiropractors ask the California Chiropractic Association

In response to questions regarding the legality of CBD products in chiropractic practice, the California Board of Chiropractic refers licensees to the law and says it cannot provide legal advice.

"Unfortunately, the Board can only refer you to our laws and cannot provide legal advice. Although our law may not provide a specific answer to your question, we recommend you review the California Code of Regulations section 302."

Section 302 defines the practice of chiropractic in California. Its very broad.

The California Board also stated:

"You may wish to inquire with the California Chiropractic Association or seek other legal advice."

Truth is that its not just about whether or not chiropractors can do this - its whether anyone can.

According to the California Department of Health:

"Therefore, although California currently allows the manufacturing and sales of cannabis products (including edibles), the use of industrial hemp as the source of CBD to be added to food products is prohibited. Until the FDA rules that industrial hemp-derived CBD oil and CBD products can be used as a food or California makes a determination that they are safe to use for human and animal consumption, CBD products are not an approved food, food ingredient, food additive, or dietary supplement."
