UVCA Creates CBD Task Force


Afton, VA – In response to increasing questions and uncertainties regarding cannabinoids, Hemp, etc., the Unified VCA has established a “CBD Task Force.”   


The purpose of the task force is to develop a summary of the status/legalities of CBD products in Virginia for Chiropractors. The goal is to clarify what is clearly legal, what is clearly not legal, and what gray areas remain.  It will address discrepancies in federal versus state law and the impact of the farm bill recently passed by Congress.


The task force chair is Dr. Scott Banks.  Dr. Banks has been in chiropractic practice for 39 years and currently runs Banks Nutrition Center in Virginia Beach. He received his undergraduate degree from Alfred University, his DC degree from Logan College of Chiropractic, and his MS in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. He is the past editor of the journal of the ACA Council on Nutrition and widely published in his own right. He has given hundreds of presentations and CE programs to health care professionals throughout the U.S. including the Southern Medical Association, The American College of Sports Medicine, and the UVCA. He served as a preceptor for Eastern Virginia Medical School in alternative medicine.  He is a Past VCA President and Chiropractor of the Year and current editorial co-chair of the UVCA’s quarterly newsletter.


If you have any questions or comments for the task force or the UVCA, please feel free to forward them to
