CBD in the UK

Is CBD legal in the UK?

All CBD products are 100% legal to buy and use in the UK providing the product has derived from an industrial hemp strain and it does not contain more than 0.2% THC. Companies that sell CBD products in the UK are not permitted to make unsubstantiated claims relating to the medical benefits of their products. However, many individuals who have used and are currently using CBD have reported major benefits, especially relating to pain relief and inflammation. Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation has thrown its weight behind the supporters of CBD by announcing the substance can help treat symptoms relating to Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, pain, anxiety, depression, cancer and diabetic complications.
