“This is yet another step on our journey to providing high quality, cannabinoid products across the UK to those who need it most. We’re incredibly excited about the future of Dushey and this merger is just the latest example of how the company has continued to grow from strength to strength.”

UK Novel Foods Update

The British government is still in the process of validating thousands of novel foods authorisation requests. According to the UK government website, “Novel foods are foods which have not been widely consumed by people in the UK or European Union (EU) before May 1997. This means that the foods don’t have a ‘history of consumption’.” 

Businesses need to submit novel food authorisation applications by 31 March 2021. Whilst waiting for their application results, businesses can continue to sell their existing CBD products provided they are correctly labelled, are not unsafe and do not contain substances that fall under drugs legislation. 

“However, no new CBD extracts or isolates, including new brands, should be sold until they have the necessary authorisation. A validated application is not sufficient to put new products on the market.”
