RPS asks Home Office for guidance on THC levels in cannabidiol oil


It's a popular myth that the law on this is unclear. It isn't, it's crystal clear, in black and white and there are no grey areas. It's astonishing that the RPS or its lawyers can't simply read the law. But there's no point asking the Home Office. It regularly gets the law wrong and frequently gives what can only be deliberately incorrect advice such as in its drug licensing factsheet which is incorrect. CBD products are 'exempt products' under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 2(1)(a)(b)(c). Thus the maximum amount of THC permitted is 1mg per container.
