CBD is not a restricted substance in Spain, but may not be extracted other than from the fibres and seeds of approved hemp varieties of cannabis plant; this in practice excludes extraction in the country, and restricts most imports.
Despite the manufacturing and import restrictions, the Spanish industry generally operates under the belief that CBD products with less than 0.2% THC content are legal to sell in general retail.
CBD may also be sold in dedicated private cannabis clubs, which operate in some regions of Spain (e.g. Catalonia) under local laws despite a federal ban on the sale of cannabis products.
