Texas proposes rules for edible hemp production and sales

Texas has proposed a slate of rules for consumable hemp products and asked the public to make suggestions on them.

The Department of State Health Services rules published Friday address oversight and licensing for manufacturers, processors and distributors. The rules would also require $150 annual registrations for retailers to sell CBD.

Public comments are due in 31 days; the final rules are expected to take effect in July.

The proposed rules also address product testing and labeling requirements to be sold in Texas. Labeling requirements for CBD products would include:

  • QR codes.
  • Manufacturers’ phone numbers and email addresses.
