The UK Food Standards Agency should review its recently published guidance recommending an acceptable daily intake (ADI) of 10mg cannabidiol for consumers, says food law expert Mark Tallon. Data in the public domain, such as that published by Tallon and colleague Robert Child shows that short-term consumption of CBD isolate is safe for adults at circa 100mg per day if applying the FSA’s assessment approach, he explains.
The UK Food Standards Agency has issued new advice aimed at consumers warning them not to take more than 10mg CBD per day, an acceptable daily intake level significantly lower than the agency's previous ADI of 70mg per day. However, CBD brand owners should not reformulate their products, Canna Consultants warns, as this would be a breach of FSA's conditions for remaining on the market.
