C, B and D are the hottest three letters in retail. Just about everyone is jumping on board the CBD train, infusing everything from gummies to coffee to potato chips to cosmetics to even toothpaste. Estimates say the U.S. CBD market could be worth $24 billion by 2023. Meanwhile, plaintiff’s lawyers are eyeing it as a potentially lucrative target and have begun filing class action lawsuits against CBD product manufacturers and sellers.

Join McGuireWoods’ food and beverage and product labeling teams for a discussion of recent regulatory and litigation developments related to CBD, including an in-depth analysis of filed class actions and what to expect next. The presentation will cover key strategies to protect against such lawsuits.
