In this article, we do not discuss the local aspect of CBD legality as it is a broad and complex topic that we will discuss in a separate article.
The legal background is changing all over the world, but it can be said that it is in favour of CBD, industrial hemp and medical cannabis. The same products are sometimes categorised as medicines, food supplements or food ingredients. It all depends on local legal regulations and the adaptation of the cannabis-based products.
In some countries, CBD can be purchased anywhere, while in others CBD is sold at pharmacies or can only be prescribed by a doctor. In other countries, CBD is only sold by a government organisation or hospital, and so on.
In all EU countries, the import of CBD for personal use is permitted, provided the THC content is less than 0.2% (in Italy up to 0.6% THC is allowed).
In the US, CBD is allowed in almost every state, but is not fully legalised at the federal level, though it is expected to happen soon.
To find out about the CBD legal background, we always recommend that you review your country’s regulations and consult with your physician before using.
