#1 - CBD comes from hemp

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring, non-intoxicating, phytocannabinoid compound found in the various Cannabis Sativa plants. It is one of over 100 different cannabinoids, and present at different levels depending on the species and environment within which the plant is grown. Together with Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a cannabinoid known for its intoxicating effects, CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids of the Cannabis Sativa plants.

CBD is most usually extracted from the ‘hemp’ stream of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Whilst the plants are almost identical, the hemp plant carries a THC level that is below legally set levels (in the EU this is typically a level of THC of 0.2% or lower, however refer to your specific jurisdiction).

#3 - CBD, how does it work?

#4 - CBD, is it legal?

Whilst cannabis is classified as an illegal drug, CBD is legal in most countries around the world and in Europe. In Europe it is generally considered legal provided that the hemp has a THC level of 0.2% or below.

BeOlea full spectrum CBD oils have a level below 0.01% of THC (0.01% being the lowest level of THC detection possible) and is derived from streams of EU approved hemp.

Whilst it remains legal in most countries, at EU level there is an intention to classify CBD oils as a novel food, it is then up to each jurisdiction to decide how to implement this guideline in their respective countries.

We follow the regulations that pertain to us, however due to the big differences between countries we cannot reasonably comment on individual territories. Please research your territory for most up-to-date information to understand your laws and regulations.
