United Patients Alliance are aware that there are thousands of people in the UK who feel that supplementing their intake with hemp cannabinoids is beneficial for their health and well-being.
There are an ever increasing array of products appearing, most with very few quality or legality checks and balances and we get asked frequently for advice on product and vendor trust and quality especially as there is concern that not all products necessarily contain what is advertised.
In October 2016, it was brought to the attention of the MHRA that some vendors of CBD products were making medical claims for their product(s) and issued a statement that products used for medicinal purposes are a medicine. Some vendors were asked to remove their products from the market apply for appropriate licensing.
UPA asked for the help of Norman Lamb MP, who, along with Baroness Meacher, Professor David Nutt, the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) and members have been welcomed to consult with the MHRA. It is expected that the MHRA will make a statement at some point clarifying the situation. Whilst these issues are being addressed, hemp food supplements remain legally available for sale.
