Florida Faces a Complete Ban on CBD - HB 1613 SB 1698

The Looming Threat to CBD in Florida: Understanding the Impact


In a critical turn of events, Florida faces the possibility of a complete ban on CBD, a staple in the wellness and medical treatment of millions of Americans. This development arises from legislative efforts to outlaw synthetic chemicals in hemp that can induce euphoria. The hemp bill has already passed the Senate and heads to the House floor next.

The Heart of the Matter with CBD Bills in Florida


Legislation at Play: Florida's bills, HB 1613 and SB 1698, propose redefining legal hemp in a manner that would exclude naturally occurring cannabinoids like CBD. This redefinition could severely limit access to CBD products, affecting not only consumers but also producers and retailers within the state.


Key Voices in the Debate: Paige Figi, often hailed as the "mother of CBD" in the U.S., spearheads opposition to these bills. Her efforts are bolstered by the testimonies of parents and independent hemp growers, who fear the devastating impact on their livelihoods and the health of those benefiting from CBD products.


Potential Consequences of Banning CBD in Florida


Impact on Consumers: Millions of Floridians who rely on CBD for medical and therapeutic reasons could find themselves without access to these crucial health products.


Effect on Businesses: The proposed legislation threatens to significantly harm the hemp industry in Florida, with businesses facing the possibility of closure due to the loss of a major part of their product line.
