SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — Later this week, Illinois lawmakers will return to the state capitol for the Fall veto session, and CBD regulation will be one of the topics of conversation.
CBD is a cannabis extract that is marketed as a remedy for everything from anxiety to chronic pain.
Some products can contain harmful pesticides or may not have the promised amount of CBD.
A proposed bill would require all products sold in Illinois to meet testing requirements, which would be developed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
The bill would also require any untested products to be removed from store shelves.
Sales of CBD products in the U.S. are expected to reach $5 billion this year.
