CBD Flower what are the options?
The UK unlike many parts of Europe have never legitimised the sale of Cannabis flowers rich in CBD and low in THC.
The current legal legislation around cannabis has 2 tracks
- High THC cannabis, cultivars that have over 0.2% THC in the plant
- Low THC (CBD Flower) are cultivars under 0.2% THC
CBD flower – the advantages
Reaching the parts other medications can’t!
The approach the UK is taking is based on the historical echo’s when cannabis was illegal and all notion of a legal Cannabis industry did not exist. The UK government has, for a long-time insisted policy is based on evidence and scientific research. If that is the case, why is CBD Cannabis flower not completely legal in the UK?
The case for CBD has been understood by much of the population as the continuing and increasing sales of CBD products show. UK regulators have enforced Novel foods on CBD products, yet CBD flower is the most natural way to be able to consume CBD and the other minor cannabinoids in the grown flower.
The case for CBD flower becomes more compelling when you look at the 2018 Italian law change, which created a legal loop hole for the sale of Cannabis lite (CBD Flower). The Italians embraced the opportunity to use CBD flower and as research has shown they chose to replace prescription drugs.
The Academic research found some very interesting results. Italy effective legalised the sale of Cannabis light flower containing up to 0.6% THC.
The research compared the differences in all 106 provinces of Italy and found that where Cannabis Light was locally available there was a significant decrease in prescribed Anxiolytic drugs used to help with around anxiety issues.
The reason this is so interesting at the current time is due to the trailing tail of long Covid. The whole pandemic has left the world reeling in so many ways but probably one of the most fundamental is the increase in general anxiety levels in so many populations.
Research is now mounting that shows CBD has an impact on the Covid virus. New trial’s looking at cannabis treatment in Long Covid cases means evidence is building that access to natural CBD flowers would benefit the whole population in potentially reduced health care costs.
The only legal way to shop for CBD flower in the UK is with a medical Cannabis prescription. The CBD flowers available in the UK formulary means there is a wide range of cultivars to choose from and all legal.
