THC and THC Oils are illegal in the UK when they contain more than 1mg of THC within a single closed container. Typically this would be greater than 0.2% THC and or from hemp that is not produced using EU-approved cultivars.

What is THC Oil?

THC oil is produced by extracting the compound from marijuana, AKA cannabis. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short, is considered to be the main psychoactive compound present in the cannabis species. THC has many variations from delta 8 THC and, more recently, THC O.

How is THC Consumed? 

THC Oil:- Is taken sublingually. This is an acquired taste as it contains the most authentic cannabis flavour. 

THC Vape Pen and THC Vape Juice. THC vape pens are ubiquitous as they are inconspicuous. They come in the format of disposable vape pens or refillable vape kits where THC vape juice is used to top up the refillable vape pens. 

High levels of THC have changed cannabis from what it used to be. The marijuana of the past had a relatively low potency of around 8 to 12% on average. Today's marijuana can average 20 to 30% or higher, and Cannabis concentrates can have THC levels as high as 70 to 90%! Therefore, it is of absolute importance that, as a consumer, you know exactly what you are buying,  the types of THC and who you are buying from. You want to ensure lab reports are available that prove there is no THC or the levels of the controlled substance are so minute that they are not considered illegal. Hence, we recommend full-spectrum CBD Capsules or full-spectrum cannabis that is legal.

Many of these folks find that CBD is just what they need. By utilising full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD oil instead of THC oil, consumers remove many risks associated with the dangers of THC oil and THC Vape pen. For obvious reasons, this makes CBD oil a much smarter lifestyle decision than THC oil.

There is also a type of THC oil called RSO or FECO (full extraction cannabis oil). This product is made by extracting THC along with vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and terpenes from marijuana. The alcohol is then used as a tincture, reduced over low heat, and turned into a thick, sticky oil. This oil ends up producing high levels of THC and is also illegal in the UK

Legality of THC and Marijuana in the UK

When it comes to the legality of cannabis in the UK, it has been illegal for quite a while now. The UK first saw cannabis become illegal in 1928. Similar to the United States and the Nixon Administrations Controlled Substance Act, the UK saw plant cannabis added to the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act as a class B drug. Current regulations on cannabis in the UK still make it illegal.

If you are caught with cannabis in your possession, you could face up to five years in prison or a fine of an unlimited amount. Even worse yet, you could face both prison and an unlimited fine. These laws have helped deter those who may be tempted to partake in illegal cannabis in the UK. Instead of risking fines and jail time, a lot of people prefer to play it safe.

When it comes to cannabis, they choose the route of the legal CBD industry in the UK versus the illegal cannabis black market. Black market cannabis poses all kinds of threats. Beyond jail time and fines, you run the risk of endangering yourself by putting yourself in an environment with drug dealers and other criminal elements.

Another concerning factor is that without proper lab tests, there is no way to determine whether the cannabis you are purchasing from a ‘street dealer’ or black marker is safe for consumption. You're going on the word of somebody whose job is to hustle drugs on the street to make as much money as they can.

How CBD or legal cannabis products are Made and Its Uses

The process first starts by extracting the plant material to remove the THC from the plant. This is done using several different techniques such as butane, propane, ice water, or CO2 extraction. The new gold standard is supercritical CO2 extraction. This is the same extraction method that in implored in industries such as extracting essential oils or creating additives for foods and beverages. Other solvents such as butane and propane can be used but offer more risks to the extractors and consumers. There are natural solvents such as olive oil but they are not used commercially as they offer a very low return rate.

Once the cannabinoid has been extracted, it then takes different routes depending on the end use/product.

For vapes, low temperatures are applied to help melt the concentrate before mixing it with a combination of PG, VG, or natural cannabis terpenes in order to keep it at a vape-able consistency.

For oils and other ingestible products the extract is refined through a process to create the cannabis distillate. This is a multi-use versatile form of cannabis oil that can be added to food or beverage.

In some instances there is another process to then isolate a single cannabinoid such as CBD. This is usually in crystal or powder form which then is usually combined with a carrier oil such as MCT oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil and others. This is how CBD isolate oils for CBD Vape pen are made.
