The use of cannabidiol (CBD) as an addition to food products and food supplements has seen a dramatic rise in the last few years, which is largely attributed to claims around the alleged benefits associated with its use. These include the reduction of anxiety and general improvement in mood.

CBD Regulation

The use of CBD is still relatively new and as such the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have classed it as a novel food. Food manufacturers looking to incorporate CBD into their products therefore need to first submit a Novel Foods application which must be approved by the regulatory authority, EFSA before they can take their products to market.
