CBD legalisation in the UK
Is Cannabidiol (CBD) Legal in the UK?
In 2016, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which licenses medicines in the UK, officially recognised products containing cannabidiol (CBD), that are used for medicinal purposes, as medicine.
“Medicinal products must have a product licence (marketing authorisation) before they can be legally sold, supplied or advertised in the UK, unless exempt,” it said in a statement. “Licensed medicinal products have to meet safety, quality and efficacy standards to protect public health.”
