Is CBD legal?

Posted | 2 comments

The short answer to this question is yes. If the CBD-containing oil is produced from industrial hemp plants and the THC percentage is not higher than 0.2% CBD it may be freely sold in the EU as a dietary supplement (not as medicine). THC is an illegal substance in many countries, but has no psychoactive effects in a low concentration (0.2% or less). Which means it will not get you high or stoned. We have to note here that a CBD-containing oil can be illegal when it does contain a higher concentration of THC, as is mostly the case when oil is made of weed.

    Is het nog steeds legaal de cbd olie zelf maakt en verkoopt?

    • Beste Daniëlle,
      In Nederland mag CBD-olie legaal verkocht worden mits het THC-percentage in deze olie lager is dan 0,05% is. Voor zo ver ons bekend zijn er verder geen voorwaarden waar verkopers van CBD-olie aan moeten voldoen. In het Verenigd Koninkrijk gaat dit overigens binnenkort veranderen, we hebben hier laatst een nieuwsbericht over geschreven.
