What is the Cannabis Products Directive?
The Cannabis Products Directive – or CPD for short – is the proposed framework for CBD regulation in the EU. Drawn up by a UK trade association, it is not an official document but an idea of what CBD regulation should look like.
While the authorities work on the official new CBD regulations, to fill the void the trade association, the Cannabis Trades Association or CTA, has used existing regulation as a guide to make their own proposed rules.
The CPD offers an insight into what some in the industry believe should be included in the new CBD regulations. But if the proposal actually influences the new regulations here in the UK or EU is unclear.
