Over The Counter 14 Feb 2022: CBD In Europe, The Current State Of Play With Canna's Steve Oliver

Executive Summary

In this episode of the Over The Counter podcast, HBW Insight catches up with cannabis expert Stephen Oliver to talk about the current state of play in Europe’s cannabidiol markets. Co-founder of the Canna Consultants, Oliver predicts that, after a long waiting period, there may soon be some movement from UK and EU regulators. However, while the European Commission moves closer to finding a route to CBD regulation, especially with synthetic and isolate CBD food products, Oliver thinks the UK Food Standards Agency might find itself on the wrong end of legal actions from manufacturers and suppliers that feel disadvantaged by the country’s approach.
