of the UK population do not have confidence in the CBD market


The ACI is committed to the development of a legal, safe and regulated CBD market. A fundamental aspect of achieving this ensuring that consumers have confidence in our products.

The key benchmarks of this is how many people express confidence in the efficacy of our products and how many would be more likely to if there was better regulation.

In that context the findings from our YouGov survey * are truly illuminating and a vindication of why we set up the ACI, launched the ACI charter and commit our members to working towards full novel foods authorisation and standardisation of analytical testing methodologies.
