Is Buying CBD Legal in the UK?

Posted by Arya Saedi on

CBD Is a great product, and it’s becoming increasingly popular over time, however, we understand that when people see “canna” mentioned, a lot of questions can still pop up.

One of these questions can be about the legality of the product itself - is it related to cannabis, and is it legal?

So, we’ve decided to take some time to clear things up and answer these questions.

Is CBD Legal in the UK?

Yes! CBD is legal in the UK.

CBD is legal in the UK, however, the laws and legislation's in the UK state that the product has to meet certain criteria to be lawfully available for human consumption.

As long as the CBD product contains less than the legal limit of THC (0.2%), then it is completely legal. All of our CBD Oil products are THC free and completely legal.

Can you buy CBD oil online legally?

Yes, you can buy CBD Oil legally online.

Buying these products online is no different to buying anything else, such as health supplements or vape liquids. In fact, many cannabis-based products are available to buy online. However, you should only buy CBD products that have been properly tested in 3rd party labs.

CBD products must meet certain standards in order to be legally bought and sold in the UK.

Many CBD products on the high street and online are not always properly authorised. So, when you’re looking to buy CBD oil, spray or capsules it’s best to buy them from trusted websites, pharmacies or stores to make sure these products are safe for consumption.

Is CBD related to cannabis?

CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the cannabis plant, but it is a completely different extract to the one which people associate with smoking cannabis. CBD is an extract that has a wide range of health benefits, whilst THC is the extract that provides the high sensation.

To be legal in the UK CBD products must have very low levels of THC (less than 0.2%) so that they’re not psychoactive and won’t get you high.
