[H]emp growers and ambitious would-be CBD entrepreneurs in Massachusetts are upset after the state established a new policy last week banning the sale of CBD-infused food, animal feed, hemp-derived dietary supplement, or any CBD product with medicinal claims. Massachusetts joins several states that ban CBD edibles including New York, Maine, and Ohio.

Legislators based the decision on guidance from the FDA, which states that it’s unlawful to incorporate CBD into food products. A new report from The Washington Post details the still grey legality of CBD products across the country.  The FDA is currently accepting comments from the public through July 16 regarding the sale and safety of CBD or cannabis-derived products.
