UK Government Narcotics Advisors Recommend 0.05mg THC Limit For CBD Products

Executive Summary

An advisory body to the UK government recommends a single-dose limit of 50 micrograms tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for cannabidiol food products sold in the country. An analysis by Canna Consultants suggests this might translate in practice to today's widely assumed, although technically false, 0.2mg per retail unit limit.

Kicking The CBD Can? UK Gov Accepts 0.05mg THC Limit, But Legalization Still Long Way Away

The UK Home Office has accepted a suggested 0.05 mg per dose limit for controlled psychoactive substance tetrahydrocannabinol in consumer CBD products, including food supplements. However, remaining questions such as what constitutes a single dose of CBD, when UK manufacturers will be allowed to process raw cannabis, and what testing methods are needed to detect THC levels indicate that the road to compliance is still “long and winding,” argues Canna Consultants.

First UK CBD Novel Food Authorizations Not Expected Until 2024 At The Earliest

Summer 2024 is the earliest that the UK Food Standards Agency expects CBD applications to be fully authorized, according to its most recent board meeting. However, even this belated deadline could slip if the Home Office complicates matters or if the FSA is flooded with other regulated product applications. Meanwhile, the official CBD list has swelled to over 12,000 products, with thousands now validated and a few “removed” by mistake.
