CBD's legislation at the present

The slow pace of cannabis legislation encourages unscrupulous manufacturers and e-commerce companies to make enormous profits selling or advertising products with misleading statements. Sometimes with little or no CBD in their composition, or using synthetic hemp instead of organic biological hemp to the utmost of not declaring the exact amount of THC on their product's labels.

The legislation concerning cannabis products, including CBD, is limited in the UK. This lack of regulations makes the cannabis industry a dark area of confusion, misinformation, and misleading labels. Our Parliament needs to revise old fundaments concerning CBD consumption and commerce, shaping laws with reasonable and uniform regulations to help the general public be protected, safely advised and well informed.

- Governments have to deliver far-reaching rules - 

The law recognises CBD as a food supplement, and EU legislation on CBD dictates that it must be from industrial hemp produced by EU-approved seeds; It can then be extracted and placed into licensed products for human consumption that fall under the category of 'novel foods'. 

Currently, the regulations surrounding CBD remain unclear in most European countries. However, it is expected that governments will move to implement more comprehensive rules, as reported by recent announcements by the EFSA and the FSA in the UK.
