The "Ban" on CBD in NY is Highly Exaggerated
This morning articles everywhere started popping up about the DOH banning CBD from restaurants and bars.
“Restaurants in New York City are not permitted to add anything to food or drink that is not approved as safe to eat. 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,” a health department spokeswoman said.
This is extremely similar to when activated charcoal was banned in NY restaurants and bars during the black food craze.
The DOH has no jurisdiction over supermarkets so Superlost (which operated under the approvals of the DOA, who are responsible for consumer packaged foods) will continue to offer our CBD Cold Brew all over NYC supermarkets.
So don’t get scared and think that CBD is being banned all over NYC. The city is just cracking down on restaurants because consumers don’t know how much and what they are adding to their food. This is meant to protect consumers and consumers should look to food manufacturers who are clear about their ingredients and consistent dosages.
Head on over to your local supermarket and get yourself a Superlost CBD Cold Brew and relax, there’s nothing to fear.
