The Food Standards Agency warned cannabis oils products manufacturers must register by March 2021. If the deadline is not met then they will pull the product. They also are saying that it should not be used if any other medication is in use. The FSA’s testing on products in the marketplace is said to have found that too much THC is in some products and others had little to none of the advertised ingredient. They are also saying that it is not safe for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding.

Key Takeaways:

  • The FSA (Food Standard Agency) of the UK has imposed a hard due date for CBD products to get registered or they will be pulled.
  • They have also started to recommend that no one with medication take it or people who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • The hard date is set for March 2021.

Quote: “The FSA said producers had been slow to submit their products for approval, forcing it to impose the deadline.” (Smith, 2020)
