Teplice, Czech Republic: – The European Commission and UK Food Safety Agency (FSA) have both declared as valid the latest Novel Food application NF 2021/2283 for isolated trans-Cannabidiol (CBD) from pioneering producer and B2B supplier of upmarket cannabinoid solutions, CBDepot. This now increases to four the number of  CBDepot Novel Food applications validated by the authorities.

CBDepot’s commitment to Novel Food compliance began in early 2016, shortly after Cannabis Pharma launched the CBDex® brand. CBDepot’s EU application NF 2019/1371, covering synthesized trans-Cannabidiol became the first-ever CBD-specific dossier to reach validation on March 27th, 2020.

Significant market access

In early January 2021, CBDepot filed two Regulated Product applications with the UK FSA to grant access for its two grades of Cannabidiol to the most significant legal CBD food supplement market worldwide.

These were:

  • Application RP70, for Synthesized Cannabidiol with 4MP®- branded secondary products in the forms of carrier oils, measured dose spray, and chewable tablets
  • Application RP85, for Isolated Cannabidiol and CBDex®-branded secondary products in the form of carrier oils linked to this dossier

In April 2021, both RP70 and RP85 were declared valid by UK FSA.

CBDepot group’s Chief Sales Officer Boris Baňas commented: “Having four validated applications out of four submitted and appearing on the shortlist of the few validated applications, confirms CBDepot’s position as the leader in the compliant, upmarket cannabinoid sector.”
