The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has set a deadline of 31 March 2021 for cannabidiol (CBD) businesses to provide more information about their products and contents. A valid application must be submitted to ensure products are safe and meet legal standards, measures which will be enforced by local authorities.

The FSA has also advised that CBD products should not be used by anyone who is pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medication, while also recommending healthy adults do not exceed 70mg a day. This figure is based on recent findings by the UK Government’s Committee on Toxicity.
