The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) recently announced this ban on CBD-infused alcoholic beverages is going into effect on January 1st, 2020. It has said enforcement will not begin until February though in order to give the OLCC time to educate their licensees on the new rules around CBD-Infused products. So if you enjoy your CBD beer stock up now while you can!

For the near future you will still be able to order a cocktail where CBD is mixed in at the bar. However, for it to be brewed or distilled in is a clear violation of the new rule. They are also working to change this to outright ban the addition of CBD into cocktails as well classifying it as an “adulterant” in order to be more in line with FDA guidelines on CBD. Those changes were intialized yesterday but are expected to take about four months before being adopted.

There was no mention of banning CBD foods, CBD tinctures, CBD creams, or any other CBD products although more oversight for food products (thankfully!) is expected to be coming soon.
