CbdMD, a cannabidiol (CBD) brand, has retained former US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official Dr. Sibyl Swift as a regulatory consultant to oversee the company’s regulatory initiatives and prepare its products for further certifications.
From 2014 to 2020, Swift served in various capacities at the FDA, most notably as the associate director for research and strategy in the FDA’s Office of Dietary Supplement Programs, where she worked closely on the agency’s science, research, compliance, enforcement and policy initiatives. In 2020, she served as the SVP for scientific and regulatory affairs for the Natural Products Association (NPA), where she addressed regulatory policies related to NDI notifications, FDA guidance and claims substantiation.

Dr. Swift’s experience and science-based approach demonstrates to our customers, the FDA and global regulatory authorities that cbdMD is committed to having our products meet the highest regulatory standards for quality and safety,” said Chairman and Co-CEO Marty Sumichrast.
