Canadians should have over the counter access to cannabidiol (CBD) as a natural health product, according to a new campaign from the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA).
The campaign aims to make the regulation of CBD as a natural health product an election issue, calling on all parties to create a regulatory pathway that would allow the sale of CBD in natural health products.
“Quite frankly in many ways it’s easier to get high and harder to get well. That doesn’t make sense,” Dan Demers, vice president of government relations and regulatory affairs at the CFHA, said during a press conference Tuesday.
