ALL CANNABIS SEEDS ARE SOLD STRICTLY AS Collectable Genetic Preservation Souvenirs By section 6 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, it is an offense to cultivate any plant of the genus cannabis in the United Kingdom without a license from the Secretary of State. Those found in violation may face imprisonment, fines, or both.

It is not illegal to sale, or use CBD Products in the UK but controlled cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), must not exceed 1 mg per container. However, the THC limit is just one criterion. As of 2020, CBD-infused food and beverages necessitate Novel Food authorization from the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA). This entails submitting a dossier of toxicological data for assessment and approval by the Agency. We only deal with fully approved suppliers and do not “White Label” any of our goods.

Cannabis cultivation spans 12,000 years, yet CBD’s recent accessibility in mainstream products is unprecedented. We at Big Hippo ensure transparency and high standards in navigating legal complexities.

Since CBD products came to market we’ve collaborated with industry leaders, prioritising safety and correct measurements, markings and British Standards. Big Hippo sources CBD from leading hemp-derived cannabinoid producers, aligning with FSA and EFSA standards. Our 100% legal CBD isolate ensures quality and safety.

CBD’s unique status demands rigorous testing. Following CMC findings (now The MCA), We at Big Hippo  ensures stability, consistency, THC and CBD levels, and toxicity checks, striving for transparency throughout all our products, with COA provisions requested from every supplier..

Navigating CBD’s challenges, BIG HIPPO prioritise education, best practices, and adherence to clear regulations. Honesty and transparency drive our commitment to quality, sustainability, and consumer well-being.

Join us at Big Hippo in shaping the positive potential of cannabis, not just in CBD but also in soil rejuvenation, carbon storage, and eco-friendly alternatives.
