Can I travel with & can I take CBD through customs UK & Spain ?
The law and CBD is still a very grey area and current legislation towards an accurate stance on this subject can not yet be fully achieved. However according to the MHRA it is not an offence to possess CBD products that are not intended for medicinal purpose and that are being used for themselves or their own family. Below we mention the rules on medicine vs nutritional supplement. All CBD products must not contain more than 0.2% THC.
