Today, the UK has become the first country in the world to apply regulation to products containing CBD through the Food Standards Agency Novel Foods authorisation.

As the leading cannabinoid industry trade association, the ACI are immensely grateful for the work of the Food Standards Agency to take this momentous step in recognising CBD.

We are also hugely proud to state that, through our consortium study, all members of the ACI have been included on the FSA’s public list and therefore earning the right to continue to be sold within the United Kingdom.

At this moment in time, we understand that, for some CBD businesses, the news will not be positive, and we openly invite those businesses to contact us at the ACI to understand their next steps within this fledgling and rapidly growing market. We are here to support this industry and it’s community to thrive.
