CBD is legal in the UK and can be found in various products. But be sure to do your research before purchasing any CBD products to make sure you’re getting the best quality oil possible.

At The Leaf Life, we adhere to the highest quality and safety standards. Our CBD drinks are all approved by Holland and Barrett, the largest retailer of dietary supplements in the UK.

We only use the highest quality ingredients. Our oils are also lab tested to meet the most stringent safety standards.

So if you’re looking for a safe, legal, and high-quality CBD product, be sure to check out our CBD drinks on this website or in your local Holland & Barrett store.

CBD is a natural compound

Not all CBD products are created equal. Look for a product that has been extracted using CO₂ rather than solvents like butane or ethanol and has a certificate of analysis (COA) to ensure its quality.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

When did CBD become legal in the UK?

The UK government announced in 2018 that CBD oil is legal in the UK as long as it doesn’t contain any controlled substances such as THC and CBN within the product.

This change in the law came after the NHS released information stating that doctors could prescribe medical cannabis to patients in exceptional circumstances.

As Cannabidiol becomes more mainstream, we see an increase in CBD products being sold in stores across Europe. The MHRA has even issued a statement saying that products containing Cannabidiol are safe for human consumption and do not require a license. (1)

This is excellent news for those looking to benefit from the therapeutic properties of CBD.

Can I buy CBD products in the UK?

Yes, you can. CBD products are widely available in the UK and can be found in various stores, both online and offline.

Since the law changed in 2018, CBD products have been regulated and considered safe to use. This means that you can be sure that the CBD drinks you buy from us are legal, regulated for high quality and meet all safety standards.

What types of CBD products are available in the UK?

A wide range of CBD products is available in the UK, from drinks to capsules to topical creams. You can buy CBD products from various stores, including Holland and Barrett, Amazon, and various other online retailers.

How much CBD should I take?

The amount of CBD you need to take will vary depending on the product you are using and your individual needs. Always consult the instructions on the pack or speak to a healthcare professional if you are unsure.

Is CBD legal in other countries?

CBD is legal in many different countries, including the UK, the US, and Canada. However, the laws around CBD vary from country to country, so it is always important to check before you travel.

What are the benefits of using CBD?

The benefits of using CBD are still being researched. Still, there is an increasing volume of positive evidence to suggest that it can help with a variety of conditions, including anxiety, pain relief, and improving sleep.

Suppose you are thinking about using CBD products for a particular health condition. In that case, it is important to do your research and speak to a healthcare professional before starting. This will ensure that you are using the right product for you and taking the correct dosage.

CBD is a popular topic of conversation at the moment, with more and more people looking to try it out. If you’re thinking about using CBD products, why not try some of our CBD-infused soft drinks?
