The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday hinted at the possibility of a future where some foods and drinks made with cannabis extract CBD could be legal. According to Business Insider, the move is a slight departure from the FDA’s previous messaging, in which it suggested that CBD products would be barred because a CBD-based drug called Epidiolex also exists. CBD is a $1 billion industry that some analysts predict could boom to $16 billion by 2025. In the statement, outgoing US Food and Drug Administration chief Scott Gottlieb said legal CBD-based foods and drinks may exist at some point — so long as they meet or are below a level that the agency deems permissible.
