Washington’s House Appropriations Committee has approved a measure that would allow marijuana outlets to “use cannabidiol products (CBD products) obtained from sources other than state licensed producer/processors”.
House Bill 2334, filed by Representative David Sawyer, “Authorizes licensed marijuana producers and processors to use cannabidiol products (CBD products) obtained from sources other than state licensed producer/processors, provided such products are laboratory tested, approved by the Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB), and meet other specified requirements.”
The measure “Requires that all CBD products used by licensed producers and processors meet legal standards for product safety and purity”, creates a legal definition of “CBD Product”, and “Provides the LCB with rule making authority regarding the use of CBD products by licensed marijuana producers and processors.”
The proposal has already been passed by the House Commerce and Gaming Committee, meaning it may soon be up for a vote by the full House of Representatives. If approved by the House, it will be sent to the Senate where approval will put it before Governor Jay Inslee for final consideration.
