Understanding our CBD
A basic guide to what you need to know about our CBD Oils and Creams
Hemp, marijuana or cannabis?
The cannabis plant is one of the most misunderstood and terminology around it is commonly misused. Is it marijuana or hemp? Is hemp considered cannabis? Does all cannabis get you high?
Let’s clear out the confusion – Marijuana is cannabis – Hemp is cannabis – Hemp is not Marijuana – Marijuana is not hemp. Presently in the UK, all CBD products should be made from Hemp.
Both plants are crammed with terpenes and around 100 cannabinoids but for now, we will focus on just two cannabinoids:
- Cannabidoil (CBD) – This is the compound in our oils which is 100% legal
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – This is the psychoactive compound which delivers a so-called high – 100% illegal
We are so sure of our product’s quality and where it sits in the current CBD regulatory fields that we are excited to state that….
For some time now, Tier One has been braced for the re-defined FSA regulations which kick in on the 31st March 2021. This is where an application for Novel Foods status is sought to go forward in selling CBD products in the UK. We are delighted to announce that all boxes are ticked and our application is now sitting with the FSA where we see no issue with gaining Novel Food status, affording us complete confidence for the future.
This product is a food and would be an exempt product as defined by the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001.
We operate following close guidance and regular inspections by our local authority that are satisfied the food is produced safely and in line with the Food Safety Act 1990.
All conditions of placing a food product have been met with regard to the requirements set out in The General Food Regulations 2004.
We strictly adhere to the requirements of the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013.
Furthermore, Tier One CBD oil is an exempt product under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 which means that it contains < 0.01% THC therefore certified as THC free as no trace amount of THC could be detected and quantified.
