    Uh oh. The EU considers any food novel if it hasn’t been used to “a significant degree” by humans in Europe before 15 May 1997, when the regulations were introduced.

    Since January 2019 over 50 existing novel food applications have been sent it and have now been halted while the Commission weighs up CBD’s safety. My feeling is that this has a lot to do with concerns of Liver toxicity and how CBD affects our cytochrome p450 enzyme system.

    The European Commission is welcoming insights from applicants until September.

    If found to be deserving of the “narcotic” label, CBD will no longer be considered as a food by the European Commission, which will make it illegal to sell CBD products in Europe.
