Is it legal?
CBD is legal, because hemp is legal in the UK. Hemp is a plant that is safe, natural, and non-toxic. It can be used for almost anything. When it comes to cannabis, however, it is still illegal to use it or possess it. Maybe this is why people tend to get confused. Cannabidiol (CBD) though, is not considered a controlled substance in the UK. It is therefore 100% legal and can be freely distributed in the UK without restrictions.

CBD is not addictive, so let your worries fade away! A report in 2020 by the World Health Organization declared that CBD is non-addictive, writing, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential” and that “CBD is well-tolerated and safe for human consumption.

With taking anything new we would always suggest speaking with a medical professional, CBD can interact with some medicines but only at very high levels so it is on the whole very safe to take and we find lots of our customers actually reduce the amount of prescription drugs they take especially pain killers.
