CIC statement on CBD applications
“The Cannabis Industry Council notes the announcement of recent applications and toxicology studies submitted by other industry organisations to the Food Standards Agency.
“The CIC’s approach to these matters is guided by scientific and medical evidence. We are seeking clarification on the basis for some of the submissions, including the proposals in respect to the recommended daily intake of CBD.
“Within the medical sphere, the average daily dose of CBD recommended by clinicians for medical effect is 60-100 mgs. Any proposed deviation from this would have to be fully quantified with compelling evidence, which we are yet to see.
“At present, we are dealing with conjecture, and the CIC believes this is harmful to the success of the CBD industry. We will be engaging with the FSA as the detail of these third party applications is established.”
