The European Commission has updated the EU’s Cosmetic ingredient database to include an entry for CBD derived from extracts, tinctures or resin of Cannabis Sativa L. The change means naturally derived CBD may now be used in cosmetics in the EU. It follows a ruling in a French case that went before the European Union Court of Justice late last year in which the high court ruled that CBD cannot be regarded as a narcotic, and that CBD products should enjoy the same free movement of goods between and among member states as other legal products. That case eventually led the Commission to reset its position, and establish that CBD should not be considered a drug.
