Is CBD Safe?

Answering one of the most frequently asked questions related to CBD usage



The popularity of CBD is certainly on the rise here in the UK. But for many people, it is a topic for which they are not too familiar with.

Therefore it's essential to ensure the correct information is readily available. 

Here at PharmaHemp we want to provide answers to the key questions related to CBD use to allow people to make an informed decision about whether or not it is right for them.

One of the most frequently asked questions associated with CBD use is whether or not it is safe.

So is CBD safe? And if so, which conditions need to be met to ensure it is consumed in a safe manner?


CBD is legal in the UK but it must meet certain regulations regarding its potency. CBD (unless it has been medically prescribed) can only be legally sold if it has a maximum THC content of 0.2%. 

With so many studies and reports online as to its various uses, the question remains - is CBD safe?


Is CBD safe?

In order for CBD usage to be considered as safe, there are a number of conditions which need to be met. These relate to the individual buying and consuming the product as well as the product itself.

  1. CBD should only be sold to those aged 18 and over.
  2. CBD should be produced by a reputable source, who can prove their testing and certification and who undergo a set of quality checking processes.
  3. The product should also be purchased from a reputable source, who in turn should be trusted to ensure that the products they sell are safe and meet the necessary quality standards.
  4. The THC content of the CBD should be considered low or 0%. CBD oil should have a maximum THC content of 0.2% in order to be safe. This is also a legal requirement in the UK. Unless it has been medically prescribed, any CBD products with a THC content of over 0.2% cannot legally be sold.
  5. No more than 70mg should be ingested or used on a daily basis.
  6. People in certain vulnerable groups should avoid taking CBD products. These include women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and individuals who are taking other medications.
