CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural substance present in the hemp plants (Cannabis sativa) that are bred for nutritional purposes. The CBD is primarily extracted from hemp paste, made from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant.
The cannabis plant contains a range of cannabinoids – some of which are psychoactive (affect the mind) and some like CBD which do not. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a psychoactive constituent of the hemp plant. As THC can cause symptoms associated with psychosis, the levels of THC residues in CBD products are strictly controlled.

No, don’t worry! Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and any THC residues from the processing of hemp are present at a negligible level, so won’t have a psychoactive effect.
Yes, we wouldn’t sell something that is likely to cause you harm. The World Health Organisation’s 2018 Critical Review Report on CBD states that CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. All of our products are below the maximum dose recommended by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) in 2020.
CBD is not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. If someone is pregnant, breastfeeding, taking any medications or under medical supervision, they should consult a doctor or healthcare professional before use.
The World Health Organisation’s 2018 Critical Review Report on CBD stated that to that date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with its use.
Furthermore, individuals cannot readily recover any negligible quantity of THC residues present in quality products. This is due to its near absence in the first place and the technical difficulties that it would pose to obtain a yield which constitutes a risk to health and could therefore be misused.
Any person seeking to misuse a controlled substance would be able to do so more economically and more easily by seeking out illicit substances – so we believe that there is little motivation to misuse CBD products.

CBD is legal in the UK, however, there are laws around products meeting certain criteria if it is used for human consumption. There will be many CBD products on the high street that aren’t properly authorised and may not be safe to use, so when looking at buying products, go to trusted websites, pharmacies or stores like Holland & Barrett.
For CBD products to be legal in the UK they must not contain more than 0.2%. THC is what is present in the cannabis plant that can make you high. CBD products should have very small traces of THC, if any, in order to be legal.
CBD oil has been legal since 2016 when the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) stated that products containing CBD could be classed as medicines., CBD products sold by Holland & Barrett are not medicines but food supplements which have undergone a process whereby our products meet the safety, quality and efficacy standards you expect from a leading high-street retailer in wellness. These standards protect consumers and help ensure CBD products on the market are safe for consumption.
