Kevin Wachs, the founder of CBD Daily, spoke with Beauty Independent about the Farm Bill proposing hemp legalization which Congress recently passed.
If the President signs the bill, CBD products made from hemp plants will no longer be classified as a controlled substance but as agricultural commodities federally permissible nationwide. The Farm Bill is expected to pass next week.
Kevin Wachs launched Earthly Body, a hemp-focused personal care company, in 1996. Wachs has since created numerous other brands, including CBD Daily.
Within the FDA, concern may persist over the safety of ingesting CBD oil. Some industry experts believe the concern stems from confusion about the psychoactivity of CBD.
“[It] comes from lack of clarity,” says Kevin Wachs, founder of natural skincare and haircare company Earthly Body. “When people are educated to the fact that hemp CBDs, whether ingested or applied topically, contain zero levels of THC and, therefore, cannot get you high, the gray area becomes very black and white. I believe we will see this change take effect for ingestible CBD over time, as it has for topical CBD products.”
The Farm Bill, from top-to-bottom, gives benefits for the nearly billion dollar CBD industry. Next year will be a major year for CBD as a whole as we are just starting to see the potential for how far and wide the industry can go. We are very happy to be recognized as a leader in the industry and be featured in quality media outlets and magazines.
