Keep Social Distancing

The Extract would like to reiterate the importance of respecting social distancing during these events.

Stakeholders in the CBD industry have been battling with barriers in the hemp industry. Following the FSA's decision to insist on CBD companies applying for Novel Foods licenses.

These licenses will cost hundreds of thousands of pounds, risking minor players in the UK CBD market to lose their business.
