Novel Foods in full force

UK CBD law is changing…

If you’ve been following our updates, you’ll probably know by now that the entire UK CBD industry has been waiting to find out how the new Novel Foods legislation will affect your favourite products.

This legislation came into effect on the 31st March 2021.

As of the 1st April, we are no longer allowed to sell our CBD Oils as ingestible products, food or food supplements.

To explain the situation, here is a message from Zena, our Production Coordinator and regulation compliance extraordinaire…

Novel Foods applies to new foods. This is usually applied to processed foods or foods that have not been eaten by humans in the UK or European area before 1997.

From the 1st April, all of our CBD products are going to be sold as cosmetics. This is because the EU and UK Food Standards Agency have listed CBD Oil as a Novel Food.

This means that as a cosmetic rather than a food, we can only instruct and advertise our CBD products as cosmetics.

Things will be a bit different on our website. The CBD Oils will be cosmetics rather than food supplements.

Despite all these challenges, our CBD Oils are still the high quality, organic and ethically produced hemp extracts you know and love!

As ever, if you have any questions or concerns, give us a call or drop us an email.
