In our overview of the regulatory landscape in the United Kingdom we find that the UK is one of Europe’s largest CBD markets, with products sold in high street retail and large supermarket chains. However, growing and extracting CBD in the UK is very restricted and the UK operates a zero-tolerance policy for THC content in CBD products, meaning proof is required that all products are 0% THC.
