Case Summary

In December 2020, the FTC announced its first law enforcement crackdown on deceptive claims in the growing market for cannabidiol (CBD) products. The Commission took action against six sellers of CBD-containing products for allegedly making a wide range of scientifically unsupported claims about their ability to treat serious health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, and others. A summary of the proposed orders settling the agency’s respective complaint can be found on the FTC’s website as a link to each case. The FTC announced final approval of all six orders in March 2021.

CBD Meds, Inc. The proposed administrative order prohibits the respondents from making certain prevention, treatment, or safety claims about dietary supplements, foods, and drugs, unless they have the human clinical testing to substantiate the claims. More broadly, it requires them to have competent and reliable scientific evidence when making any other health-related product claims. It requires the respondents to notify consumers of the Commission’s order.
