Regulatory Challenges in Cannabis Product Development

11:50 - 12:25

  • Ever since the late 1970s, cannabis use in the United States has been shifting from counterculture rebelliousness to mainstream acceptance. The regulatory transitions in this accelerating journey will be briefly reviewed
  • Then comparisons will be made between the recently enacted legal frameworks for cannabis-infused products and the long-standing federal regulations for food products. The focus will be on four core areas of product development and innovation: branding, packaging, labeling and claims. Intellectual property issues will also be noted
  • The presentation will be short and informal, with ample time for questions and audience interaction on this exciting and timely topic
  • A short bibliography for further reading will be available for download
