Adelup working to resolve CBD issue

274
There is still no clear guidance on CBDs and it’s not just Guam but also the rest of the U.S. who are in this position.

It appears that Adelup won’t be waiting for answers from the Federal Drug Administration before acting on issues concerning cannabidiol (CBD) products and their controversial seizures by Guam Customs and Quarantine.

Being able to clarify GovGuam’s stance on the importation of CBD products is the goal of the administration, according to Acting Governor Josh Tenorio, in order to provide the relief these products provide to the community.

A meeting has already been held among Guam Customs and Quarantine Director Ike Peredo, Department of Public Health and Social Services Director Linda DeNorcey, Speaker Tina Muna Barnes, Acting Governor Tenorio and the Adelup legal team in order to establish a path the administration could take to clear the muddied waters that CBD seemed to be swimming in.

“So I would tell you, you know, stay tuned. Our legal office is working towards a good pathway forward and the goal that I have is to make sure that CBD products from the United States that are certified through labs that are recognized will make its way into the marketplace on Guam,” Tenorio said.

He added: “We are looking at some good alternatives, that are, that can speed through the certification and validation of these products and I’m pretty certain, we’re gonna get through this.”
