Products intended for human consumption in the United States are generally subject to rigorous product safety protocols & labeling requirements enforced by federal, state & local agencies. While laws & regulations for cannabis & cannabinoid products continue to evolve, it's worth noting that several markets still operate without oversight.

Product safety standards refer to a system of processes & procedures implemented though out a supply chain to ensure that products are safe for their intended use, possess the composition, purity, & identity they claim & can be effectively recalled if safety is compromised. They can be mandated by state & federal regulations or can be adopted voluntarily through self-regulation.

Many adverse events caused by contamination & label inaccuracies could be addressed through improved product safety protocols, regulations & proper oversight, until then consumers should understand the implications for their safety in the various markets.
