“There is a process in progress in the EU to determine whether other parts of the hemp plant (eg, leaves or flowers) and extracts of the plant have been legally marketed in the Community before May 15, 1997. Then Novel Food Catalog will be updated and clarified with respect to to which parts of the hemp plant are not considered covered by the novel food rules.”

In fact, one company, Cannabis Pharma S.R.O, pre-empted the update to the status and submitted an application some time ago. It is currently under assessment and, according to one industry source, may get approval in March 2020.

Like with many rules for CBD there is some confusion. Claims of legality of CBD flower and bud made by retailers are commonly based on the fact that they have been sourced from ‘EU approved varieties’ and contain ‘less than 0.2% THC’.

What does this mean?

Read about the position of the Food Standards Agency (UK authority) in the section ‘Food Standards Agency and CBD’ below.

* ‘Not detected’ means no THC at 0.01% as verified by accredited ISO lab.

However, the authorities did not find ‘a history of consumption’ of cannabinoids before May 15, 1997 and so, according to novel food regulation, a novel food application is required.

In fact, the status has only recently been updated after a review by the EU authorities (read Update January 2019) below.

CBD Full Spectrum Compliant Distillate refers to the finished product achieved after distillation and post processing of our crude oil. It is a much purer product than crude and contains the compliant amount of <0.3% THC.
