Cancalm®, can assure you that we have the UKs largest growing, processing and extraction facilities of cannabis and have now announced our support for the Food Standards Agency’s “novel food application process” for CBD products in the United Kingdom.
Under these set requirements, any CBD food products failing to have a validated submission before the 31 March 2021 deadline will be taken off the shelves!
Cancalm® can ASSURE you that clarification has been provided by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and that we are of fully in support of protecting CBD from enforcement and moving the CBD industry in a direction that means more safety standards to be met, ensuring you, the consumer are taking exactly what is said on the label.
So to keep you updated, from 31 March 2021, the FSA have stressed they will remove any unregistered CBD products from sale.
The GOOD NEWS is…
The exemption supported by the Novel Foods Application by Cancalm® CBD will allow our products to be sold freely without restriction under food law.
“A novel food, is defined as any food that had not been consumed regularly by humans in the EU before 15 May 1997. However, many humans have consumed hemp for much longer, hemp-derived CBD is a relatively new product.”
Our novel food application required an in-depth chemical composition of our Cancalm® products and evidence that shows it can be consistently manufactured. We also must submit safety data to prove that our product is safe to consume and that it is also safe when formulated into food products.
Cancalm® CBD have been working on this submission for fifteen months and expect to complete the submission later this year.
In a nutshell, Cancalm® CBD won’t be going anywhere! We are here for the long run. So, you can Keep Calm…our products won’t be going anywhere, how cliché!?
