For years, we’ve written about California ‘s really weird hostility to hemp – derived CBD. Many attempts to regulate CBD failed. Last year, the government finally managed to pass AB-45 But the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has really done nothing since then. This will change soon. Finally, California will regulate CBD.
California is receiving CBD regulations
At the end of April 2022, CDPH published The proposed emergency CBD regulations will continue until the end of May 2022. We strongly encourage shareholders to comment on any part of the regulation that they find objectionable. Once the regulations are finally passed, it will be very difficult to change them.

How does California regulate CBD?
Proposed emergency CDPH Regulations For example, the old cannabis regulations are not as comprehensive. They are about ten pages long and mostly deal with registrations for industrial hemp growers. Here are some key points:
- Different types of hemp product manufacturers receive different types of registrations, licenses and / or licenses from the agency. Manufacturers of different types of products may need multiple registrations.
- Some overseas manufacturers must register with the CDPH to import products from here.
- There is a separate “registration and supervision permit” that lasts one year. Manufacturers need them everywhere and can not transport them.
- Supervision license applications require detailed information about sources, product types, extraction methods, and so on. Owners must sign them with the penalty of perjury.
- Fees are based on gross income in the next 12 months. New applicants must estimate the costs. There are complex formulas for calculating costs. There is one cost structure for extract manufacturers and another for other CBD product type manufacturers.
This is just an overview of how California CBD will be regulated in the near future. Inevitably, we will see more precise rules for things like marketing, advertising and consumer sales. But it is at least encouraging to know that four years after the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, California will finally regulate the CBD.
