UK law regarding CBD can be confusing. Although there is a huge demand for CBD products such as CBD Oil, CBD Edibles, and CBD Vape Liquids, and many legitimate suppliers such as CBDology meeting the supply, you may still have some concerns regarding the legality of CBD in the United Kingdom.
Read on for more information on the possession of CBD products and an answer to the question, ‘can I be arrested for carrying CBD?’.
CBD Oil UK Law 2020: The Facts
CBD Oil is one of the most popular CBD products on the market and can be purchased as a licensed medicine or, more commonly, as a food supplement. These legal CBD oils are derived from hemp plants and contain less than 0.2% of the psychoactive THC cannabinoid found in cannabis.
The CBD must also be extracted from EU approved industrial-grade hemp strains to ensure the low THC content and that the oil is not considered a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs act. It is also necessary for CBD producers to possess a licence to grow hemp or cannabis as well as permission from the UK Home Office.
If your CBD product and its supplier meet these requirements, then it is legal for you to buy and possess and you cannot be arrested for carrying CBD in the UK. However, it is not legal to carry CBD oil when flying to the UK unless you are one of the few British citizens who possess a medicinal CBD oil license. It is currently illegal to buy CBD oil in another country, including Holland, and fly to the UK with it and so and you could be potentially arrested.
CBD flowers and hash products are also legal to buy in the UK, as long as the THC content is less than 0.2% and the supplier and grower meet all necessary legal requirements as mentioned. However, carrying CBD flowers and hash could potentially result in an arrest if the police officer is unaware of the legality of the product and determines the substance to be cannabis. This grey area means that in order to avoid confusion, confiscation or potential arrest, you should avoid travelling with CBD flower and hash products.

Although there are many established and reputable CBD suppliers, like CBDology, operating in the UK and Europe, there is also a fast-growing number of new CBD suppliers who lack the knowledge required to sell CBD products.
