On March 23rd the European Food Safety Authority finished the suitability check of CBDepot’s application for authorization of pure synthesized form of Cannabidiol as novel food ingredient. This substance is structurally identical to the pure CBD derived from the plants of species Cannabis sativa L.
Since then, CBDepot is waiting for the EC to declare the application valid.
Finally, yesterday, on March 31, European Commission gave a mandate to EFSA to perform a Risk Assessement on CBDepot’e Dossier NF 2019/1371.
This means CBDepot is currently the only company worldwide holding a “Valid” Novel Food Application.
Implications towards the UK market are very interesting.
