The Association for the Cannabinoid Industry (ACI), which represents several of the largest CBD companies operating in the UK, wants to change the way CBD is tested. Currently, CBD balms, vapes, and oils are not tested with the same standards.
According to recent market research, more than 8 million Brits are now buying CBD, spending more than £150m on products in the first four months of 2020.
The ACI announced today that, in partnership with the lab company Eurofins and the Laboratory of Government Chemists (LGC), a testing company and UK government advisor, it has set the first lab standards for detecting cannabinoids in CBD products sold in the UK.
The ACI is now in discussions with the UK’s Home Office and the LGC to refine the lab standards and extend them to cover food products infused with CBD.
