Last week, the Food Standards Agency published a highly anticipated list of over 3,000 CBD-infused products that are to remain on shelves in England and Wales, following a credible application for novel food authorisation.
First published in April 2021, the online directory has been periodically updated as part of the government’s drive to monitor the safety, hygiene, and quality of CBD products.
Validation is only the first step, and CBD products must undergo further stages of assessment before being authorized in 2023, but the list is already helping authorities, retailers, and consumers to make more informed decisions.
Here, we take a look at five of the most promising brands on the FSA’s updated list.
Headquartered in Colorado, and known for its exclusive CO2 extraction technology, Folium Biosciences is the largest, fully, and vertically integrated producer of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil in the world.
Backed by quality, sciences, innovation, and scale, Folium is setting the highest standards in CBD production and prides itself with unlocking the full potential of safe, high-quality hemp.
The firm has developed a proprietary engineering process that isolates and removes any unwanted compounds while creating the maximum potency level of phytocannabinoids. Folium’s state-of-the-art technology ensures a full-spectrum oil that includes both high levels of phytocannabinoids and terpenes. This guarantees its customers a consistent, pure, and premium product.
