American Eagle Exec Says There Shouldn’t Be An Age Restriction On CBD, As The Retailer Prepares To Add Hemp Products

AE announced their partnership with Green Growth earlier this month

An executive for American Eagle told CNBC on Tuesday the company doesn’t think there should be an age restriction on CBD use. The retailer, which focuses on apparel for teens and young adults, is gearing up to add topical products containing the hemp extract in October.

“We don’t think there should be an age restriction. As I said, we are sticking to just topical CBD, which all the evidence shows is safe,” Chad Kessler, a global brand president for American Eagle, said on CNBC’s “Closing Bell. ”

American Eagle and cannabis company Green Growth Brands announced a partnership earlier this month to put CBD products on the retailer’s shelves. Green Growth said it also has partnerships with Abercrombie and DSW.

The Food and Drug Administration maintains there are still questions about the safety of CBD. Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb told CNBC in June that CBD is not a “benign compound” and that it should be regulated to protect consumers from possible unknown side effects.
