With time ticking down for CBD manufacturers to meet the UK’s deadline for having a validated EU novel food application in hand, two European hemp associations are pooling resources to meet the application’s requirements.

The assistance on offer from the European Industrial Hemp Association in Germany and the Association for the Cannabinoid Industry in the UK highlights the urgency with which suppliers and processors need to move if they hope to be selling cannabidiol supplements and foodstuffs on the British market early next year.

That’s because the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) set a deadline of March 31, 2021, for industry players to gather data on their CBD products and have their novel food applications validated by EU authorities.

The legality of CBD products in the European Union became murky in January 2019, when EU authorities classified all hemp extracts and hemp-derived products containing CBD and other cannabinoids as “novel foods.”

The designation means that manufacturers need to have their CBD supplements and edible products evaluated and seek permission from EU authorities to place them on the market.

EIHA

European Industrial Hemp Association members agreed last year to submit a joint novel foods application with “a range of CBD extracts” to UK and EU authorities. The group said in February it was receiving membership applications “on almost a daily basis” from interested parties.

This week, the EIHA confirmed a report that revealed the scope and costs associated with its joint novel foods application. The association told Hemp Industry Daily:

  • An EIHA task force is in the process of choosing four formulations of CBD to be consolidated into one novel food application. The formulations will be finalized at the EIHA general meeting in June.
  • The joint application project, organized as a limited liability company, will cost at least €2 million ($2.16 million). The EIHA estimates that the required lab analysis of CBD and THC toxicology studies alone will cost €1.8 million ($1.94 million).
  • The group plans to launch the toxicology studies in June.
  • The cost of joining the consortium is estimated at €10,000 to €50,000 ($10,800 to $54,000), depending on the size of the company and when it joins. Regular EIHA members will be asked to pay the consortium cost in two installments, with the first next month.
  • This one-time cost comes in addition to the cost of a regular EIHA membership, which ranges from €2,500 to €10,000 ($2,700 to $10,800), depending on company revenue.
  • All companies that join the EIHA are obliged to join the novel foods consortium.

The association declined to say how much of the necessary funding for lab tests and toxicology evaluations has been raised so far.

Lorenza Romanese, managing director at the EIHA, said companies outside the European Union can join its novel foods consortium and would be eligible to sell products on the EU market if the joint application achieves authorization.

ACI

The UK’s Association for the Cannabinoid Industry announced this week a free hotline for CBD manufacturers with questions about the novel food application process.

The group also offers paid consulting services for individual applications.

The ACI’s approach pools resources for the data-generation phase while taking an individualized approach for each company’s application. The effort aims to help companies get the research they need, said Shomi Malik, ACI’s development director.

“The most expensive part of this isn’t writing the dossier, it’s generating the data,” Malik said.

“The best of both worlds is to share the costs of the real heavy lifting but still give companies the freedom to do their own individual applications. That’s what we’re trying to do here.”

The ACI estimates that the cost for the toxicology study alone – the portion it’s looking to syndicate – will cost around £250,000 ($309,000). A full toxicology assessment takes seven to eight months to complete, ACI said, followed by an extra month to generate the data report.

The group said its application consulting services could cost anywhere from €50,000 to €500,000 ($54,000 to $540,000), depending on the size of the company and the number of finished products requiring novel foods authorization.

Malik applauded the EIHA for its collective application option, which he said might appeal to CBD players who haven’t budgeted the financial resources required for an individual application.

“Now that ‘novel foods’ is a binary proposition – you’re either in or you’re out – companies have had to find budgets from somewhere,” he said. “Their objective is to do this the quickest and cheapest way possible.”

On the other hand, in the event that a collective novel foods application is authorized, parties to the application run the risk of finding themselves in a “regulatory straitjacket” not to deviate from those formulations. This could hinder industry innovation, Malik said.

“You’re in a much better position if you’ve got your own novel food authorization, than if you have to share and compromise with some aspects on the data sharing,” Malik said.

Clock is ticking

Whichever path companies choose, it’s time to start the process for any products they want to keep on the shelves next year, said Garrett Graff, an attorney at Hoban Law Group who advises companies doing business in Europe and the UK.

“It’s important that folks get started now,” Graff told Hemp Industry Daily.

“This is not a commonplace application that takes a couple hours. This will take considerable amounts of planning, coordination, time and financial resources to complete, and engaging as quickly as possible given the forthcoming deadline is important.”

CBD oil is increasingly acclaimed for its benefits. Use as an e-liquid for vaping, but also as a dietary supplement to fight against stress or depression, CBD is everywhere.

Find out what its benefits are, how to consume it, and where to find it.

With some of the best online suppliers in Europe, British users can now easily find and order CBD flowers in UK. It has simplified the way to purchase high-quality CBD online, and we can now enjoy the best CBD oils.

What is CBD oil?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is part of the family of cannabinoids, a group of molecules found in the hemp plant, such as THC or CBD. We all have so-called cannabinoid receptors in our brains, which explains why these compounds have a more or less significant impact on the human nervous system.

CBD oil is extracted from the cannabis plant. It contains mostly cannabidiol, the concentration of which varies depending on the product. Today it is mainly used as an e-liquid for electronic cigarettes, as CBD oil to add in food and drinks, and CBD capsules.

While the hemp plant has been cultivated for over 6.000 years in China, it is only today that CBD oil is becoming more and more popular, as scientists discover many benefits for our organism. Indeed, unlike THC, another cannabinoid, CBD does not have psychotropic properties. For this reason, cannabidiol is also called “therapeutic cannabis”!

What are the effects of CBD oil?

Unlike THC, the effects of CBD oil are not harmful to our nervous system. CBD does not cause a feeling of intoxication or euphoria, unlike THC, and therefore no loss of control.

Conversely, it offers a feeling of serenity and a sense of relaxation. CBD is also found in recognized drugs like Cannador, Sativex, or Epidiolex.

To start with, CBD oil can help you fall asleep. If it does not have the effect of a sleeping pill, it will, however, cause your body to relax to promote falling asleep indirectly.

Likewise, CBD oil can help you not only to combat stress but also to regulate your mood. Indeed, CBD acts in particular on receptors linked to anxiety. For this reason, it is reputed to be a powerful anxiolytic and is effective in treating depression.

Note that paradoxically, CBD oil can help you fight against drug addiction since it will promote emotional balance while helping you overcome anxiety and stress, often overwhelming during withdrawal.

Finally, CBD oil can be used as an anti-inflammatory, especially in the case of Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammatory disease of the digestive system.

How should you use CBD oil?

CBD oil is consumed orally, by placing 1 to 2 drops on your tongue or by adding them to your food or drink. The bottles sold are therefore often equipped with a pipette. After swallowing the CBD oil drops, leave it on for 30 seconds before continuing to eat or keep busy.

Please note, it is essential not to exceed 3 doses per day. If you take too much CBD oil, you risk increasing the relaxing effects and wanting to sleep! The ideal is to start with a low dosage and increase it gradually if you support it.

Also, CBD oil is not recommended for pregnant women.

Is CBD oil legal in the UK?

Cannabis derivatives do not have an outstanding reputation, in particular, because of THC, the compound which has psychotropic effects. European legislation is therefore relatively strict with cannabidiol. For example, any product containing THC is prohibited if the THC level exceeds 0.2 %.

However, products from Cannabis sativa seeds and stems are not prohibited in the UK, which explains why most of the CBD oils currently on sale come from them. Despite everything, CBD oil remains banned for minors. No law has been enacted regarding CBD oil, but case law prevails until European law issues an opinion on the subject, not always in a pleasant manner!

Where to buy CBD oil?

CBD-based products are very numerous: crystals (the purest form) for culinary preparations or other uses of this type, oil, e-liquid for electronic cigarettes, CBD flowers, CBD resins, etc. You will, therefore, have no harm to find CBD for your consumption.

On the Internet, you will mainly find CBD oil, as on the online store. You will find a whole lot of websites that are claiming to sell the best CBD products. However, you should only buy the best quality of CBD flowers and CBD oils.

Check websites such as Justbob.shop to find the right CBD products. As a leading company in Europe, this supplier from Italy is offering natural CBD flowers and great CBD oils. Also, they are following a set of many quality controls, and they are recognized by the Italian authorities, which means that they are well-known and that they are complying with local and European laws.

CBD In Medicine: Relief and Regulation SPONSOR: Mota Ventures $MOTA.ca $APH.ca $GBLX $PFE $ACG.ca $ACB.ca $WEED.ca $HIP.ca $WMD.ca $CGRW

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 11:40 AM on Tuesday, April 21st, 2020
  • Neuropharmacologist and Functional Medicine practitioner Dr Elisabeth Philipps tells MCN about the therapeutic benefits of CBD and talks about CBD regulation.

MCN speaks to Dr Philipps about the science behind the health benefits of CBD and the need for standardised regulation of CBD food supplements.

Dr Elisabeth Philipps is a neuropharmacologist and practitioner in Functional Medicine with over 18 years’ experience. She operates a thriving health consultancy in the UK specialising in CBD, brain and gut health; where she provides expert opinion for private clients, corporate business programmes, the national media, specialist healthcare publications and health companies.

How did you first become aware of the endocannabinoid system and the therapeutic benefits of cannabis?

I’m a neuropharmacologist by training, so I’ve been aware of the medicinal therapeutic benefits of cannabis for a number of years. The endocannabinoid system was only discovered in the 1990s so it’s actually a relatively recent system that we’ve known about in the body, but it’s only been in the last two to three years that my focus has become much more intense on the endocannabinoid system, medicinal cannabis and CBD oil supplements; because of the rise in profile of those products.

What are the potential dietary benefits of consuming CBD or hemp?

The two products are quite different: hemp is extract of the whole plant, so the dietary benefits of hemp normally come from the hemp seed – you could have the seeds ground or sprinkled on top of your food, for example; maybe hemp seed oil which makes a good salad dressing. Hemp oil extracts are rich in very beneficial omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids; you also find things like protein and fibre as well as minerals and vitamins: magnesium and phosphorus, for example, are found within the hemp seeds themselves.

CBD is an even more refined extract from the hemp plant flowers rather than the seeds, so there’s not so much [in the way of] dietary benefit; but it contains the compounds such as the phytocannabinoids, and other compounds such as flavonoids and terpenes, which can confer health benefits; so you get the dietary benefits from hemp seeds and hemp seed oil and you get other health benefits from consuming CBD.

What kind of conditions and ailments do you find that people are using CBD for?

[There are] three primary areas that people find CBD works for them: the sleep area, to help improve the quality of sleep; people report being able to [get to] sleep more easily, stay asleep and feel more refreshed when they wake up. [The second area is] pain, which comes in many different forms – it can be nerve pain or neurogenic pain or inflammatory pain, so conditions such as arthritis, for example, or more acute conditions such as sporting injuries or general inflammatory injuries. People report taking CBD oil as helping to reduce the response to pain. What’s been very interesting in the study of CBD and phytocannabinoids in pain pathways is that not only is it blocking the pain pathways themselves in the spinal cord and brain, but also CBD acts within the parts of the brain that helps change our perception of pain. That’s really key, because it’s how we respond to the pain signals in our bodies that gives us the intensity of the experience; so CBD is an important component of a programme to help manage different types of pain.

The third area that I find CBD can really help is in mood, in particular [for patients who are] feeling anxious or stressed. CBD has this ability, through various pathways in the brain, to help balance the systems that help us feel better, to improve wellbeing, to improve our mood. CBD works at the neurotransmitter level, transmitting chemicals in the brain that send signals to help provide a balance. There are a number of studies coming in: they’re relatively small scale, but they’re looking at CBD oil for anxiety and for sleep and they have showed improvement in those areas; but the science is beginning to play catch-up now as well.

What is the science behind the effects of CBD on different symptoms?

CBD interacts with our own endocannabinoid system and I think that’s really key, because when you take a medicine it’s a very blunt tool: it either turns something on or turns something off; it blocks a response or it produces a response. CBD is lot more subtle than that within the body, because it works within the endocannabinoid system and that system is spread throughout our body – the endocannabinoid system is in the gut, the brain, in the immune cells, in the lungs, in the skin – so that’s why CBD can have such a diverse number of effects.

We produce our own cannabinoids within the body to stimulate and produce effects; and CBD helps balance the body’s production and the body’s ability to activate the endocannabinoid system through its own naturally produced mediators. There’s a lot of science showing how CBD acts within the endocannabinoid system and produces its responses.

What advice do you have for consumers when choosing a brand or product to ensure it is good quality and does not contain any unlisted ingredients?

This can be a very confusing area, because there are so many products that have hit the market. First of all, a CBD food supplement is legal in the UK if it contains less than 0.2% THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. That is the cannabinoid which causes the commonly associated high or buzz that you get from marijuana; it’s only present in hemp in very low levels anyway and it’s been stripped out of CBD oil. You need to ensure that you’re taking a legal product that contains less than 0.2% THC; and you can do that by asking the company for a certificate of analysis.

Every batch of CBD oil that a reputable company receives will have had a third-party laboratory testing [conducted] on that particular batch of oil, which will have a batch number so it can all be traced. That will show the breakdown of the different cannabinoids and the different constituents of that particular oil so you’ll be able to see not only that it contains the legal limit or less of THC, but the amount of CBD that it says on the label as well – that’s where the product can vary drastically, so you need to have a look at that certificate of analysis to show that it contains the CBD that you want. You will find some companies selling 0% THC products, which are very useful especially if you are drug tested for work or if you’re a professional athlete. The Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) can test for THC and other banned substances and can provide a certificate to show that you don’t have any of those substances within your product. Reputable companies should have their certificates of analysis on their websites; or have a chat with them and they should provide that information for you.

How do you anticipate the market will evolve in over the next few years?

This is a very interesting time for CBD and medical cannabis: there’s obviously a lot going on and there’s a lot in the news. I think there needs to be more CBD regulation within the industry, because there’s a wide range of products on the market that differ in terms of their CBD content and what they purport to have in them; so there needs to be more CBD regulation, there’s no doubt about that. Equally [there is a question of] how that CBD regulation is brought in: the industry is playing catch-up in a way because the popularity of the product has grown exponentially in the last few years.

What we need to see is regulation, working with food standards agencies and [other regulators] at a government level. I think that will evolve over the next few months and years; and it’s going to be [because of] FourFive and other reputable companies that are working with the regulators, to help the industry in a way that protects it and still provides consumers with quality products.

Working on the assumption that further CBD regulation is likely to be introduced, do you expect this to impact patients using these products?

There is no doubt that the CBD regulation will change; and that it needs to protect the industry in terms of protection of products and protect consumers as well. I think it’s a case of companies and experts working with both agencies and the regulators: the impact on patients is our primary concern; and we are working towards avoiding any impact so there is seamless availability of quality products on the market. That is a goal that everyone is working to at the moment: every country is different and we’re just going to have to keep working together to make sure that high quality products [are going] to be readily available.

Do you anticipate Brexit having an impact, either positive or negative, on CBD regulation and medicinal cannabis regulation?

Brexit will potentially free up time and space for this topic to be higher up agendas. I believe that Brexit has possibly moved discussions of CBD and medical cannabis off the table or further down the list [of priorities]. I do think we’ll see more discussions happening in the next few weeks and months as Brexit resolves. At the moment we’re still working under European guidelines, in terms of the food supplement side at least, but it will be interesting to see how that pans out as we leave Europe; and as with many different areas of Brexit it’s still a bit of an unknown as to how EFTA’s [the European Free Trade Association] regulations and rules will affect the Food Standards Agency on the UK side. There will definitely be more discussion around this, certainly in the groups that I’m involved with; and we know that there are greater discussions to be had in the next few months.

With the current climate of social distancing and uncertainty, it’s no surprise that events have been forced to cancel or postpone left, right, and centre. Despite the disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, some organisers are persevering with their plans – at least for the time being. One of those events is the Europe Canna Expo, set to take place in  London in July.

The Europe Canna Expo (ECE) is scheduled to make a return to London for a 2-day event on 26-27 July. Following the success of last year’s Europe CBD expo at the same location, the ECE will aim to bring together over 90 speakers and 125 exhibitors.

The Venue

The ECE is set to make a return to the London ExCel Centre in Canning Town East London. The event was held at the venue in July 2019, with an array of exhibitors and speakers. This year, the Europe Canna Expo is expected to be even bigger. However, uncertainty remains over the event.

The ExCel Centre is currently home to the temporary Nightingale hospital – the improvised care centre for victims of the Coronavirus. It remains unclear when the need for the venue will be over as the UK’s Coronavirus lockdown continues.

Exhibitors and Speakers

However, should the expo go on as planned, attendees will be spoilt for choice with speakers and professionals set to provide insights into the CBD, cannabinoid, and medical cannabis industries. In addition, the event will be present a huge number of exhibitors including a variety of manufacturers and businesses.

Speakers will include international experts showcasing senior-level insights and global scientific research in the CBD, cannabinoid and medical cannabis sectors. Organisers of the event expect that attendees will include consumers and businesses, as well as policymakers and press.

The event will provide an opportunity for global leading brands to showcase their products to thousands of attendees. From CBD drinks and chocolates to medicinal products, the Europe Canna Expo plans to present the most innovative international brands.

Event Schedule

The ECE organisers are yet to release a detailed schedule for the two-day cannabis expo. This may be due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus lockdown. For more information and up-to-date announcements, visit the ECE London website.
