Is CBD flower that doesn't contain THC legal in the UK in 2021?

I'm not really sure I understand what the laws mean. Are all cannabis products illegal or only the ones that have THC? Are CBD or hemo flowers legal in the UK in 2021?

Joel Taylor (Tuesday, July 13, 2021):

Unfortunately, yes, possession and cultivation of CBD and hemp flowers without a license is illegal in the UK in 2021 as they are defined as "cannabis", which is a controlled substance. The 2021 UK law states that while CBD flowers may not be purchased, you can still purchase other CBD products that fall below the 0.2% THC concentration.


Osasere Okunloye (Tuesday, July 13, 2021):

CBD flowers are illegal in the UK even if the amount of THC is less than 0.2%. They are classified as part of the cannabis plant under the Misuse of Drugs Act of 1971. This doesn't apply to other CBD forms and CBD beverages/foods. Other CBD forms are legal as long as the amount of THC is less than 0.2%.
