Hemp Products Deemed Not Adulterated Or Misbranded
Concerning modifications to the "Colorado Food and Drug Act" to allow products containing industrial hemp, and, in connection therewith, establishing that products containing industrial hemp are not adulterated or misbranded by virtue of containing industrial hemp.
The bill modifies the 'Colorado Food and Drug Act' to establish that food, cosmetics, drugs, and devices, as those terms are defined in the act, are not adulterated or misbranded by virtue of containing industrial hemp. The bill also defines 'industrial hemp' and 'industrial hemp food product' and sets forth the department of public health and environment's powers with regard to applicants and registrants engaged in, or attempting to engage in, the wholesale food selling, manufacturing, processing, or storage of an industrial hemp food product.

Fact Sheet for Hemp Foods Bill 2018

ADD NEW Definition: “HEMP FOODS PRODUCT” MEANS A FINISHED PRODUCT CONTAINING A DELTA-9 TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL CONCENTRATION OF NO MORE THAN THREE-TENTHS OF ONE PERCENT THAT IS A COSMETIC, FOOD, FOOD ADDITIVE, OR HERB FOR HUMAN USE OR CONSUMPTION CONTAINING ANY PART OF THE HEMP PLANT INCLUDING NATURALLY OCCURRING CANNABINOIDS, COMPOUNDS, OR DERIVATIVES FROM INDUSTRIAL HEMP.
