During a House Oversight Committee meeting on the recent spike in vaping-related injuries, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said he wanted to spend his time “talking about CBD because I believe there’s a lot of misinformation and confusion about exactly what CBD is and what THC is.”
“CBD is cannabidiol and it is something that a lot of people take, a lot of people in Congress take CBD, millions of Americans take CBD, I take CBD,” he said, showcasing his products.
He went on to compare hemp’s relation to marijuana to the differences between broccoli and cauliflower, stating that they’re in the same family and “they have some similarities, but they’re also very different.”
“If you look at CBD, the majority of CBD that most Americans are taking and they’re having really positive effects from CBD is coming from hemp, not marijuana,” he said.
Discussing his personal use of CBD preparations, Comer, a former state agriculture commissioner, said he’s visited the companies that manufacture them and that they are “producing a good, legitimate product.”
“But those companies want the industry to be regulated,” he said. “Currently there are no [Food and Drug Administration] regulations on CBD oil, and the legitimate, credible companies want regulations.”
