CBD oil has been one of the hottest topics in the market as of late. With its variety of products spanning from CBD capsules UK to CBD tablets UK, people have certainly begun to see its benefits. However, there have been a lot of questions surrounding its legality. Let’s take a look at these questions and see what UK’s Laws have to say about them.
UK citizens can grow industrial hemp by applying for a license from the Home Office Controlled Drugs Licensing department. The license covers both the cultivation and possession of cannabis.
CBD Product Selling
CBD products can be sold in the UK as long as they are not advertised to have medicinal benefits. These can only be done with a license from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. The legality of the CBD products depends on the number of controlled cannabinoids contained in the product.
Licenses are not needed when it comes to importing CBD into the UK. However, shipping to other countries is only allowed if the product is legal in that country. Some countries have stricter laws than in the UK.
Brands are allowed to sell CBD products as a food supplement under two conditions:
- No medical claims
- A daily recommended dose below 200mg of CBD is stated on the product
