LABELLING

After your advertising, your labelling is the primary vehicle through which you can communicate with your customer. It is vital that that communication is clear and effective – but it also has to be legally compliant.

Cannabinoid products, depending upon their nature and manifestation, straddle the categories of:

  • Foods;
  • Foods supplements; and,
  • Nutritional products

and the labelling requirements are disparate for each and are disparate in different ways depending upon the jurisdiction in which the product is being retailed.

Given that there are over 10,000 labelling failures recorded by Trading Standards every in the UK alone, enforcement action against you for breach of the requirements is not a mere theoretical possibility. indeed, given the current spotlight on the cannabinoid industry, an in-depth regulatory labelling review is perhaps an inevitability.

Whether you are currently the subject of regulatory engagement or whether you would like a labelling health-check for peace of mind, do not hesitate to get in touch.

NUTRITION AND HEALTH CLAIMS

Your advertising and promotional material is the primary vehicle through which you can communicate with your customer. It is vital that communication is clear and effective – but it also has to be legally compliant.

Cannabinoid products, depending upon their nature and manifestation, straddle the categories of foods supplements and nutritional products.

Presently there are no “permitted” health or nutritional claims in respect of cannabinoids themselves, however, when cannabinoids are combined with additional ingredients which do permit such claims in respect of the additional ingredient, then those claims are permissible. The crucial factor is how you identify the claims and the context in which you describe them – the most apparently minor differences in phraseology or punctuation can transform an acceptable claim in an unlawful one.

Whether you are currently the subject of regulatory engagement or whether you would like a product review for peace of mind, do not hesitate to get in touch.
