Is CBD Oil Legal?

CBD is legal in the UK if sold as a food supplement. CBD products that are produced using Cannabis Sativa L. (hemp) are able to be legally sold as food supplements. The Food Supplements Directive 2002/46/EC defines a food supplement as foodstuffs which supplement a normal diet and which are concentrated sources of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physical effect.
Hemp has been used as a nutritionally rich ingredient for thousands of years. Its also one of the oldest and most sustainable crops to be grown in the world.
HAVE THE MHRA BANNED CBD?
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency have not banned CBD. They do not have the authority to ban CBD and any reports that you have read stating they have are false.
WHAT ABOUT THE MHRA STATEMENT ON CBD?
The MHRA have stated that “products containing cannabidiol (CBD) used for medical purposes are a medicine. Medicinal products must have a product licence (marketing authorisation) before they can be legally sold, supplied or advertised in the UK“
Any product that make medicinal claims and are used for medical purposes are classified as medicinal products. It is true that these products do need marketing authorisation.
But the MHRA have not stated that CBD used as a food supplement will require a marketing authorisation. Just that CBD used as a medicine require a marketing authorisation.
WHY DOESN’T CBD REQUIRE A MARKETING AUTHORISATION FROM THE MHRA?
As long a CBD product is sold as a food supplement and does not make any medicinal claims. Then they are legally able to be sold in the UK. If the effects of the consumption of a food supplement is no different to that linked to the consumption of hemp as a foodstuff, it cannot be classified as a medicine and does not need marketing authorisation to be sold in the UK.
COULD THE MHRA BAN CBD IN THE FUTURE?
No, as stated above. They do not have the authority to impose a blanket ban on CBD.
They can however make determinations on a case by case basis and subsequently conclude that a product is a medicine and would require authorisation.
But until they have assessed each case and issued a final determination.. They can not lawfully impose any restriction on the sale of a product or enforce any action with regards a breach of the medicines act.
A new case would be required for each specific product and for each product they would have to take in to account of all of the characteristics, in particular its composition, its pharmacological properties, the manner in which it is used, the extent of distribution, its familiarity to consumers and the risks which its use may entail.
Currently there is no immediate threat to consumers or suppliers of CBD products in the UK

How much CBD Oil should I take?

Dosage is very important, and it differs from person to person depending on an individuals tolerance to CBD. You cannot overdose on CBD, but you should be aware of how much you are taking. We would always advise reading instructions, and if you are a new user of CBD products, start with a small amount.

General advice is that 250 - 1000mg strengths are ok for general everyday wellbeing. 

CBD products are a food supplement and are NOT a medicine or designed for specific health issues. CBD products on this site comply with all laws and DO NOT contain any THC.

Dropper Oil Dosage Advice.

The amount of oil in a dropper that you use is subjective. It's down to how much the individual wants to use AND the strength of the oil being used.

For example, if you wanted 10mg of CBD and you had a 250mg oil, you'd need about 8 drops.

Each drop has about 1.25mg CBD. If you have a 500mg oil, you'd use about 4 drops as each drop is approx. 2.5mg.

To work out the approximate amount of CBD in each drop, you divide the total CBD content by the ML in the bottle. Then divide that by 20 (there are approx 20 drops in 1ml). This is not an exact science but it gives you a rough idea.

​When starting, we always recommend starting LOW and SLOW. Use a low strength oil (between 250mg - 500mg). Start by using a low amount of drops per day, and then increase it over time.

WEEK 1 - Use 3 drops twice a day
WEEK 2 - Use 3 drops three times a day
WEEK 3 - Increase amount by 2 or drop on each application
WEEK 4 - increase as needed. You will find a level that suits you.

Once you have found that level, stick to that amount.

We also recommend a RESET. If you feel that the oil is no longer having any effect, you may want to try this. Stop taking the oil for 3 or 4 days. This allows your body to literally reset and purge any excess CBD.

​Maximum RDA for CBD is 200mg
