VANCOUVER and SAN DIEGO, Sept. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Phivida Holdings Inc.

It is expected that the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture will "mark up" the language submitted by Senator McConnell, which will require the FDA to:

According to a report from the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, Senator McConnell's announcement will pave the way for CBD products to become formally recognized as a safe and legal substance as a matter of federal law and will expedite the FDA's processes in doing so. The bill will be marked up by the full Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday and could go to the full Senate soon.

"This is a huge step not only for us but also for the industry at large. This decision marks an important moment for the CBD industry, and can potentially augment Phivida's national reach, and provide greater national clarity to the industry as a whole" stated Jim Bailey, CEO of Phivida Holdings Inc. "While the passing of the Farm Bill allowed industrial hemp and CBD industry to conduct extensive research and develop new products, this federal legislative change has the potential to enable companies like ours to bring our full portfolio of products  to the market with products that consumers are demanding."
