Pregnant women or new mothers who are breastfeeding are being advised not to consume increasingly popular products that contain a chemical found within cannabis plants. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued its first ever safety advice on CBD (cannabidiol) products, which are produced using a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis plant. CBD has become popular in the treatment of pain, muscle soreness or spasms, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety and insomnia. It can be found in a range of products such as oils, balms, sweets, bakery products and drinks. A growing number of celebrities – including Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and Gwyneth Paltrow – have all extolled the benefits of CBD products.

Emily Miles, the FSA’s chief executive, said: “The actions that we’re taking today are a pragmatic and proportionate step in balancing the protection of public health with consumer choice. “It’s now up to industry to supply this information so that the public can be reassured that CBD is safe and what it says it is.” The FSA’s advice on the consumption of CBD products is based on recent findings by the government’s committee on toxicity. Professor Alan Boobis, the committee’s chair, said: “My committee has reviewed the evidence on CBD food products and found evidence there are potential adverse health effects from the consumption of these products. “We are particularly concerned about pregnant or breast-feeding women and people on medication. “We don’t know enough to be sure about such a risk but I am pleased with the sensible and pragmatic approach the FSA i
