Classification of Residual Solvents
Residual solvents in therapeutics are defined as organic volatile chemicals that are used or produced in the manufacture of drug and/or supplement ingredients, or in the preparation of a therapeutic product. Some residual solvents are not completely removed by practical manufacturing techniques. However, because some residual solvents may be toxic at specific concentrations, it is critical that all plant-derived therapeutic products undergo testing in their final form before being distributed to the public.
DEA Public Letter 08/27/19
In this notice, the DEA announces that, as the result of a recent amendment to federal law, certain forms of cannabis no longer require DEA registration to grow or manufacture. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, which was signed into law on Dec. 20, 2018, changed the definition of marijuana to exclude “hemp”—plant material that contains 0.3 percent or less delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis. Accordingly, hemp, including hemp plants and cannabidiol (CBD) preparations at or below the 0.3 percent delta-9 THC threshold, is not a controlled substance, and a DEA registration is not required to grow or research it.
