WHAT IS CBD?

Cannabidiol also known as CBD is a non-intoxicating & non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa plant.

There are over 111+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and CBD is one of the two most abundant naturally occurring cannabinoids found. The other most abundant cannabinoid is the more widely known THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). The properties of these two cannabinoids differ in the way that THC is the cannabinoid that is responsible for the intoxicating and psychoactive effects that a user experiences when administering marijuana (cannabis), known as getting stoned or high. Whereas CBD is not psychoactive and produces no 'high'. CBD has been vastly researched and well documented and thought to have huge therapeutic potential. CBD is known for a wide range of different applications such as oils, cosmetics, vape liquids, food products and more.

  • Is CBD Legal?
    In short, Yes. CBD (Cannabidiol) in its raw form is completely legal to buy, supply and possess in the UK.
    When focusing on CBD products though, it’s important to consider if they contain THC. THC is the compound in cannabis that is responsible for causing the high, and THC is illegal. Therefore, though CBD is completely legal there are strict restrictions over its THC content. Currently, CBD oil in the UK can only have a maximum THC content of 0.2%. Any CBD oil with a higher THC content remains to be illegal and use is prohibited.
    All Mary Jane Labs products are legal and comply with UK laws and legislation.
