Cannabis regulatory expert Laura Eder and Wendi Young, president of Triverity Laboratories LLC, have researched and interpreted regulations in each of the 50 states for CBD products with a subscription price tag of $US5000.
The result is Cannabinoid Regulations, a subscription-based service designed for small- and mid-sized CBD companies that want to be compliant but don’t have the resources to hire a full-time regulatory professional.
“Reading and interpreting regulations from each state takes time that a lot of companies just don’t have,” Young said in a statement announcing the new directory.
“The regulations for CBD products vary significantly from state to state and can be contradictory. This makes it challenging for CBD product manufacturers. Cannabinoid Regulations has done the work for you with expert evaluation and actionable summaries.”
The online resource also provides appendices on testing and labeling to guide CBD product manufacturers in becoming and remaining compliant. Subscribers receive quarterly updates to ensure the information reflects the constantly changing regulations.
“We are passionate about providing small CBD companies with the same level of regulatory expertise as the big companies,” said Eder. “Until FDA creates a strong regulatory framework, it’s up to all of us to do everything we can to keep our industry safe, trustworthy, and successful.”

What is the Cannabinoid Regulations tool?
Cannabinoid Regulations is a reference tool to help understand the complexities of the US CBD industry. It is an annual subscription that is updated quarterly as regulations change.
The state regulations vary drastically from states that have no regulation of CBD products to states like Colorado where CBD product manufacturing is highly regulated. The tool includes individual state summaries that contain information on product legality, transportation, labeling and testing summaries along with links to the state websites and/or regulations.
The scope of this tool is limited to CBD product regulations. A summary of some aspects of hemp regulations are provided where appropriate for CBD product manufacturers and retailers. It covers everything from CBD product legality, product manufacturing requirements and labeling compliance to all of the testing requirements and it is presented with supporting documentation for each individual state. Appendices for labeling and testing compile the various state requirements and distills them into a quick reference guide. Summaries of basic requirements are included as well as an example of a label that is compliant in the majority of states.
Regulatory guidelines for individual states are also available for retailers interested in a specific area.
