The Cannabis plant has had a long history with regulators in the UK. Unfortunately, when breakthrough compounds are discovered within the cannabis plant, they are subject to a long list of extracurricular checks before they can become widely accepted. What is especially troubling is that compounds like CBD oil, which do not produce a high and are not addictive, are put into a difficult situation. CBD, as we know, is especially beneficial to people who suffer from pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia and so much more. So, is CBD oil legal in the UK? Can I buy CBD online?
Yes, you can buy CBD in the UK
According to the UK government, it is perfectly legal to have and use CBD oil. The government does state that they would rather see it used as a topical, and not as an ingestible. But, as a CBD supplier, it is perfectly legal to sell CBD that has been produced in a country where CBD use is legal. Our CBD is exclusively produced in Switzerland putting us in total compliance.
Also, the UK has a large market for self-grown cannabis enthusiasts. There are plenty of DIY grow shops all over every major city and even throughout some of the smaller towns. The UK cannabis culture is thriving all around.
CBD is not included in the list of regulated substances in the UK. This technically does allow CBD to be sold and transported within the country.
Does This Make it OK for Me to Order CBD Online?
Yes! In fact, if you are looking for the highest quality CBD, you should definitely buy online.
The two main reasons why are: the quality of products and lack of dedicated brands. These problems became apparent in the UK market early on, as poor quality CBD oils (if you could even call them that) flooded the market and confused so many first time buyers.
Let’s breakdown each reason.
Quality of CBD
Traditional CBD brick and mortar shops usually sell their own line of products. Given the overhead of running an expensive store, we figure a CBD shop in the UK would have to be turning over at least 10,000 pounds of income a month. That’s just to make it interesting for the owners. It is no secret that CBD oil is made from a cash crop, but we’ve found many that try to maximise their margins just to stay afloat by producing “CBD oil” that is horrible tasting and basically just cooking oil. Shops do try to marginalise this by offering face to face consultation and assuring potential customers that their products are “the best”.
Now compare that with an online retailer. There are low overhead costs, less staff to pay and less pressure to find a cheap product to sell for high margins. Online retailers also offer more in-depth information like lab reports, CBD instructional videos and more. In the most basic terms, online CBD retailers rely more on their products’ abilities rather than the convenience of having an expensive CBD shop to pop into down the road. It is always better to order CBD online.
A brand is a representation of a company in a customer’s mind. When we think of McDonald’s, we all immediately have our own definition of what that means to us personally. Some people depict good thoughts, whilst others look at it with more negative thoughts. CBD Brands are the same.
Let me explain the reason why I bring up Brand Allegiance. CBD brick and mortar shops, as mentioned above, usually sell their own line of CBD. If you check online CBD retailers in the UK, you will notice quickly an abundance of low quality, “walk away” branding that carries no weight and is not professional. A “walk away” brand is something that is easy to walk away from. Think cheap products at a petrol station. There today, gone tomorrow. What’s worse, if the presentation of the product is poor, imagine the contents.
To contrast this, at Pure Organic CBD, we are tied to our brand. In fact, we like to say “Our promise to you is in our name“. All things aside, what carries us as a brand is our products and the quality and transparency they have. Our company vision has always started with the customer first and walked its way backwards. Not profit first, customer last. This fundamental difference in approach is why our brand is growing. We’ve had amazing testimonials from our customers, why? Because we reach out to each and everyone to see how they are doing. Our goal is to become better and learn what is working for our customers. Buying CBD in the UK is possible all over the country, but if you want to buy from a brand that is dedicated to its customers, buy from us.
Can I travel with CBD Oil From the UK to Europe?
Yes, you can travel with CBD to the EU. As long as the THC level is clearly marked on the packaging. The THC content needs to be under 0.2% by volume. Do not think about traveling to the EU or anywhere else with a homemade product as it will be confiscated or you could be fined or worse.
