What is Novel Foods? ⠀

As the 31st of march creeps upon us Possibly one of the hottest topics in the CBD industry right now is “Novel foods” You are probably wondering like a lot of people at the moment, what exactly is Novel Foods? 


To put it as simply as we can, Novel Food Guidelines is a set of guidelines set out to ensure that products sold on the market are safe to sell as foods. In Europe, a food is considered novel, if it wasn’t regularly used for human consumption to a significant degree within the EU before 15 May 1997.⠀

CBD Uplift is novel foods compliant ahead of the changes on 31st March 2021. Our products are covered under a novel foods application that has been submitted to the FSA & EFSA which includes all of the products on our website including full spectrum CBD products. ⠀

As an emerging brand our number one priority is our Community. Quality and safety is something we take extremely seriously and it is our mission to ensure that our community has access to the highest quality CBD available on the market. Each and every batch of products that we produce are analysed by a third party laboratory and we include lab reports in every order, we also have the latest lab reports live on our website which is open for anyone to view at any time. 

We want you all to be rest assured that CBD Uplift is here to stay & our whole range of products including our full spectrum range will be available from the 1st of April 2021.
