This is an email from the MHRA to a CBD/Hemp supplier. It clearly sets out the MHRA’s position regarding the Cannabis Trades Association, its ‘Cannabis Products Directive’ proposal and how anyone is able to obtain advice from the MHRA without having to join any trade association.

"Researchers at the University of British Columbia have published a study revealing that there may be more types of cannabinoids than expected in many strains of cannabis and also that CBD and THC are not as important for understanding different strain effects as previously thought."

"Researchers say suppliers will only be able to fulfil between 30-60% of demand. According to them, the legal cannabis supply is expected to be around 210 tonnes while total demand in the country will be about 610 tonnes. One of the main reasons for the lack of cannabis is that the government has been slow to give licences to suppliers, experts have said."

Cannabis based drugs: GPs will have to manage patients’ expectations, says expert

"It potentially gives a lot of patients false hope that this is going to be a relatively smooth and easy process. It’s going to be quite protracted: you’ve got to see your GP, and they have to make a referral to a specialist. Whether you’re in primary or secondary care, the last thing you want is additional demand, but that is what it’s going to create.”

Marcus Keane, Head of Policy, Ana Liffey Drug Project: "Criminalising people for possession of drugs for personal use isn’t helpful. It can have profound negative effects on people’s lives, but doesn’t provide any corresponding benefit for the individual or society in general. It needs to stop."

"The owners of a vape shop that was raided by offficers have lodged a formal complaint against Devon and Cornwall Police. Both owners of Vaping Is Personal, Lee Whittaker and Ashley Cole, insisted they had done nothing illegal when officers produced a search warrant and seized all products from the store that were CBD-related."

The law around CBD products is so poorly understood by the police and even the Home Office that it's a surprise there isn't more of this injustice but it's also true that there are illegal products where the law isn't being enforced.
