CBD and novel foods

Food Standard Agency

We have some important information that we wanted to share with you about the novel food regulation and the CBD industry.

CBD is regarded as a novel food, which means that CBD oil now has to pass through intense authorization processes for medical or food supplements before it is allowed to be sold on the market.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has given all CBD companies until the end of 2022 to have a validated Novel Foods Application. After this date, only CBD brands that have been accepted will be allowed to continue operating.

To build a credible novel foods dossier a CBD company must collate data to demonstrate to the FSA that their products are safe for human consumption and can be consistently made to a high quality. Once the FSA is satisfied that sufficient information is provided, it will be able to validate the dossier.

Unfortunately, this may have an impact on many CBD companies that could have to close due to these new regulations.

The positive news, however, is that hapihemp has been working with our partners to ensure an application has been submitted.

This has been an extremely comprehensive project which includes product manufacturing data, toxicology reports and stability assessments.

Recently, many of you may have noticed a difference in the taste and colour of our CDB oral oil drops. This is due to our upgraded CO2 extraction process, improved filtration system and the use of pure organic CBD MCT oil, so the colour and taste of our oils are much purer and cleaner. This not only takes away the bitter taste of hemp, but it also provides you with all the wonderful benefits of the full spectrum of cannabinoids, phytonutrients and terpenes!

Our upgraded extraction process now covers ALL STRENGTHS of our CBD oils including our brand new 2.5% THC free (250 mg) and super strength 40% THC free (4000 mg) CBD oil.

hapihemp 2.5% ( 250mg) THC free CBD oil

A great starting point for CBD oil novices and pet owners – this low dose gets the endocannabinoid system (ECS) working gently. This is also a cost-effective option to try CBD oil as a sample bottle before investing in stronger strengths. You can start with just a couple of drops a day and build slowly, or you can take up to 6 – eight drops a day for a couple of weeks before moving on.

This strength is also very popular with pet owners.

40% THC Free CBD oil is only recommended for experienced CBD users – Once you’ve used CBD products for some time you will know how much you should take each day. If you find you are having to take several drops, it may be time to look at high-strength products. These provide more cannabidiol (CBD) for your money and have a greater impact on your wellbeing.

Thank you for reading, that’s all the updates for now and we will keep you updated on the progress.
