Bee Aware: It's unlawful under the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) to introduce food containing added CBD into interstate commerce, or to market CBD products as, or in, dietary supplements. This is because CBD is an active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug and was the subject of substantial clinical investigations before it was ever marketed as a food or dietary supplement. Under the FD&C Act, it's illegal to introduce drug ingredients like CBD into the food supply, or to market them as dietary supplements.

What does this mean

Well, to put it plainly, we are a licensed food-manufacturer in the state of South Carolina.  As a licensed food manufacturer, we must abide by laws set forth by both the FDA and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA). Since CBD isolate is the active ingredient in a pharmaceutical drug, we cannot utilize isolated CBD in the production of our products. However, the SCDA does allow for the use of full-spectrum extracts.

Why does the SCDA and FDA allow for full-spectrum extracts in food products but not CBD isolate?

According the SCDA, "Hemp is a plant and...CBD is a compound.  The question is where along the processing spectrum does hemp lose its character and become a compound?" With this question in mind, the "SCDA draws the line between hemp and CBD" as hemp-material that has been processed to the point of reducing the biomass to a single compound: CBD, or CBD isolate. However, the SCDA deems "'full-spectrum' hemp extracts...more akin to hemp than pure CBD...since [it] contains an array of phytonutrients."

Given SCDA's interpretation of federal law, they have deemed "Full-spectrum'...extract if it contains the naturally occurring array of phytonutrients found in hemp (which include naturally occurring CBD)." 

What is the extract used in Apis Mercantile food products?

As a licensed food-manufactuer in the state of South Carolina, we are compliant with both state and federal law.  Our hemp food products are made utilizing a full spectrum hemp extracts containing all of the naturally occurring phytonutrients found in hemp, including CBD.  Our full-spectrum hemp extract is processed from organic biomass grown on Ivanhoe Farms in Ramah, Colorado.  The hemp plants have been genetically bred to have a high CBD content.

How should I interpret the hemp extract content on the label of the honey?

Because we cannot have a "declaration of CBD" on the label per SCDA guidelines, all milligram amounts are a reference to the total amount of hemp extract in each jar, not any individual cannabinoid; however, the CBD content generally ranges between 60-80% of the total milligram amount.
