It’s something that most people have a lot of questions about, both on the legality of the product, as well as exactly what it is and what it does. Let’s break down what we know….Is CBD oil legal in the UK?
The cannabis plant contains over 400 phytonutrients and cannabidioli (CBD) is one of the 2 major ingredients found in the plant. The other being THC.
While almost all cannabinoids are controlled substances under the Misuse of Drugs Act, cannabidiol (CBD) is not. It is a strain of the cannabis plant that contains little or no THC, but does contain CBD. Industrial hemp may be grown with a licence in the UK. Cannabidiol (CBD) is generally taken from the bud and flower of the cannabis plant. With regulated CBD oil, the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content is equal to or less than 0.2%. THC is the compound in marijuana that is known to cause a high. Because of the extremely low percentage of THC, CBD oil does not get the user high; the user simply enjoys the benefits that the oil has to offer.
Although CBD has been recognised as a legal medicinal product. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) announced that CBD products, if advertised for medical purposes, need to be licensed. At present no licences for CBD oil as a medicine have been granted but the products can still be sold as long as CBD oils are sold as food supplements and claims are not made about their medical benefits
The number of cannabidiol consumers has rocketed from 125,000 12 months ago to 250,000 now you can buy it in the UK online. But where is safe to buy it from? Always check for a lab report and check that the CBD content is what it says it is. And check the THC is lower than 0.2%

Cannabis oil is recognized to have beneficial properties, and over the years, it has gained more positive recognition in the medical field. While further professional studies are needed to draw a more concise conclusion, CBD is now bcoming more and more popular.
