CBD Testing

Many vape companies are selling Cannabidiol (CBD) in the market place. It’s worth remembering CBD is covered by wide-ranging regulations.

Our Process

Here are some principle legal aspects of CBD:

  • It is not illegal in the UK.
  • You are not allowed to make any medical claims, unless you apply for a medical licence.
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the illegal component of cannabis (marijuana) and must be below 0.2% for industrial use.
  • Finished products are covered by the Controlled Drugs Act 1985; levels must be below 1mg in the final product.
  • The Foods Standard Agency says that levels must be below 0.2% for finished food product. This contradicts the Controlled Drugs Act, so it is a grey area.
  • It’s not legal to use isolate for products for oral consumption; distillate/oil-based products should be used.
  • Products are covered by General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) 2005 and thus require a toxicology assessment in addition to having an emissions test conducted.


At this first stage, we will advise the cost of testing. Once you have enlisted our services, we will email a:

  • pro forma invoice
  • CBD packing form
  • Client information sheet.


Secure your testing by making a 50% deposit if the order is over £3,001, or full payment if under £3,000.

If you require any help or information about this, please contact the team on +44 (0)1302 986088. Once completed, email it to support@adactmedical.com.

Next, complete the CBD packing form, place your samples into a polythene bag and post in a bubble/padded envelope to ADACT Medical Ltd, 3 Nelson Street, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, DN4 5AD, UK.


After testing, our experts will check the cannabinoid data to ensure everything is as it should be. It is only then that we can proceed to the next stage.

CBD certificates issued

CBD certificates will be issued and emailed to you. Each certificate profiles the cannabinoids found in the sample sent.


Your product is now legal to sell in the UK and Europe.
