FREE Webinar with Dr Elinor McCartney: CBD – a global hot spot – how does the EU legislate CBD in food and feed?
Cannabidiol (CBD) has received a lot of attention globally because of its powerful anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-anxiety and pain-relieving properties. As such, many companies are keen to seize opportunities to use it in animal feed, human food and food supplements.
However, the regulatory landscape for CBD is complex, and its use in feed and food in the EU is far from straightforward. Join Dr Elinor McCartney in June (date to be announced soon) to learn about the regulatory status of CBD and how to legally sell your CBD-containing products in the EU.
This webinar will cover all you need to know about the regulatory challenges associated with CBD in the EU. The format of the webinar: 40-45 minutes presentation followed by 15-20 minutes for questions & answers session. Our feed expert Dr Eliana Henriquez Rodriguez and food expert Dr Thierry Kern will join as the “expert panel” to assist with your Q&A.
