A blog by Pure CBD Health

In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the way CBD laws are enforced in the U.K, we need to take a closer look at CBD itself as a product. In the UK market, the Cannabidiol in CBD oil comes from either industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa) or other strains of the Cannabis plant.

CBD is legal in the UK but it is a lot more complicated than that. The laws and regulations are intricate so we will look at them a little more closely in this blog.

CBD Laws

Importing And Selling CBD

Some important things to note with regards to the regulations surrounding CBD include those around the import laws. There are no strict requirements in place for importing CBD into the UK provided that THC is not detected by authorities at the border. (Detection would happen if levels are higher than 0.01% as verified by an accredited ISO lab). There is an exception to this rule when it comes to CBD flowers. The sale of CBD flowers and buds is prohibited even if the THC levels are below 0.2% and of an EU approved origin.

CBD in food

So what does this mean for CBD food? Adding CBD to food or any food supplements is a simple process and CBD can be added to any food. Visit Pure CBD Health’s website for more on this.

What’s Next For CBD In Terms Of Regulations?

The UK is taking a soft stance on enforcement of the laws relating to CBD products, so you will see CBD foods openly sold in shops around the UK. Each Member State of the EU has their own laws on CBD, most more strict than the UK. Expert advice is required to navigate local laws.

At Pure CBD Health we take these laws seriously and abide by the regulations put into place. Feel free to reach out with any further queries on the legal framework of CBD in the UK.
