Florida bill updates hemp consumable regulations
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently signed a bill to require the testing of hemp-derived consumables and defines what is considered “food” as it relates to hemp products, including new labeling rules for the products.
The bill revises, defines and redefines terms and requirements relating to hemp and hemp extract.
The term “food” includes any raw, cooked or processed edible substance, ice, beverage or any ingredient intended for use or sold for human consumption.
Also, according to the law, “contaminants unsafe for human consumption” includes, but is not limited to, any microbe, fungus, yeast, mildew, herbicide, pesticide, fungicide, residual solvent, metal, or other contaminant found in any amount that exceeds any of the accepted limitations as determined by rules adopted by the Department of Health in accordance with s. 381.986, or other limitation pursuant to the laws of this state, whichever amount is less.
