THE LEGALITY OF CBD
The CBD products we sell are LEGAL in the United Kingdom. The UK law states that CBD products can contain a maximum THC content of 0.2% of the product or no more than 1mg of THC per finished product. Any more than 0.2% THC (or >1mg per finished product) in the product is prohibited. All the CBD products we provide comply with these regulations. In fact, all our CBD products are laboratory tested and have been shown to contain less than 0.03% THC.
WE OFFER CBD FOR WELLNESS
There are many different terms called out when discussing CBD Oil, Cannabis Oil and other Oil forms. The Lemon Tree CBD sells CBD Oil, that is Cannabidiol Oil. We do not sell Cannabis Oil, Cannabis Oil is illegal in the UK. The CBD Oil we sell contains an extract of the Cannabis plant called CBD (Cannabidiol). The CBD comes from the Cannabis sativa L. plant (industrial hemp) cultivated in Colorado, USA. On the other hand, the compound, THC, and the cannabis plant, marijuana, are classified as class-B illegal drugs.
OUR PRODUCTS ARE THIRD PARTY [LABORATORY] TESTED TO ENSURE THEY CONTAIN EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAY THEY CONTAIN
When discussing Cannabis, it is the THC molecule that creates a high. The CBD products we sell contain less than 0.2% THC, with 3rd party (ADACT) laboratory testing conducted to ensure the products meet requirements. The 0.2% THC composition guideline has been set by the Home Office. If you want to use CBD products it is legal to do so.
Specifically, the CBD products we sell have been classed as ‘Novel foods’. Novel foods are foods which have not been widely consumed by people in the EU before May 1997. This means that the foods don’t have a ‘history of consumption’ within the European Union before May 1997. The EU keeps a list of all novel foods in a searchable database.
The CBD products we stock contain CBD that comes from Cannabis sativa L. plants cultivated in Colorado, USA. The current status of Cannabis sativa L. according to the EU Novel food catalogue is as follows:
CBD and THC both come from the Cannabis plant. But, there are great differences in the legality of these molecules in supplements and drugs
