CBD CAFE BRIGHTON RAIDED
THE UK’S FIRST CANNABIS RESTAURANT RAIDED BY POLICE IN BRIGHTON.
Supply of CBD flowers and oil, seized is legal industrial hemp.
Officers executed a warrant at Canna Kitchen in Duke Street
A 36-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of money laundering and supplying class B drugs.
Questioned over the supply of CBD flowers and oil, which police have told her are a Class B drug.
A spokesperson for Canna Kitchen said: “A quantity of stock was seized from our shop today. Our products are defined as industrial hemp, and are clearly and transparently imported as such, with all taxes and duties paid.
Our products contain CBD and trace elements of THC in line with the UK legal guidelines for pharmaceutical definitions and UK legal definitions of CBD products.
“If trace elements of THC render these products illegal, then by default all CBD products must be illegal in the UK. This would mean that many large high street chains are currently breaking the law.
“We have never in the past year and a half had any confusion over the legality of these products, and are disappointed with the heavy-handed approach of the Sussex Police force today.”
Canna Kitchen opened in December and features vegan and vegetarian food with the option of added cannabidiol or CBD, a non-psychoactive legal cannabis extract.
Trading Standards officers from Brighton and Hove City Council assisted the police during the raids.
CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive legal cannabis extract. Health products containing it have become very popular in the UK in recent months, with even Holland & Barrett launching a product containing it.
However, to be legal, it must contain no psychoactive cannabis strains such as THC.
According to a 2019 Home Office guidance note, selling or possessing pure CBD is not illegal, but if it contains any controlled cannabinoids, such as THC, it would be illegal.
It also adds: “It is our understanding that it is very difficult to isolate pure CBD, and in our experience many products in fact do not fully disclose their contents or provide a full spectrum analysis at an appropriate level of sensitivity to accurately and consistently determine their true content or control status.”
Canna Kitchen said: “Our products contain CBD and trace elements of THC in line with the UK legal guidelines for pharmaceutical definitions and UK legal definitions of CBD products.
“If trace elements of THC render these products illegal, then by default all CBD products must be illegal in the UK. This would mean that many large high street chains are currently breaking the law.”
