Eater NY has a story about the local Department of Health now cracking down on foods with CBD.
The Department of Health confirmed on Tuesday that restaurants, bars, and other venues under its purview cannot sell cannabidiol (or CBD)-laced edibles — noting in a statement that it’s not “safe as a food additive” according to federal guidance.
But although CBD can now legally be sold on its own, DOH is not allowing sales of any food or drink with added CBD, following rules from the Food and Drug Administration.
"Restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink that is not approved as safe to eat,” a statement from a New York DOH spokesperson says. “The Health Department takes seriously its responsibility to protect New Yorkers’ health. Until cannabidiol (CBD) is deemed safe as a food additive, the Department is ordering restaurants not to offer products containing CBD.”
