As the UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid moves to legalise medical-cannabis, Cibidoil™ - a startup based in Covent Garden, London - is seeking to capitalise on the UK’s fast-growing demand for hemp-derived products.
Whilst the government have said that the announcement does not pave the way towards legalising marijuana for recreational use, the news highlights the growing demand in the United Kingdom for legal cannabis-derived products.

Cibidoil™ is looking to join a budding industry already supplying the market with products manufactured from marijuana’s close cousin: industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa L.). Industrial hemp is a variety of cannabis which is naturally low in THC and high in Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD.

Industrial hemp is legal to grow under licence in the UK and across the EU. It must be grown from selected EU-approved seeds and contain no more than 0.2% THC in dried plant matter.

THC is a psychoactive compound and is responsible for the “high” recreational drug users seek. CBD on the other hand does not cause intoxication and is under research worldwide for it’s effect on the endocannabinoid system and on human health.

When asked what he believes Cibidoil™ can offer to British consumers, Glen (the creator of the brand) replied:

“Cibidoil™ stands for 4 key values: QUALITY, CLARITY, INTEGRITY & TRUST. When we took a close look at the market for hemp-derived products in the UK, and in particular at the booming CBD food supplement segment, A) we realised that a majority of consumers are confused by the products on offer, what they are, what they do and by the legislation around them and B) we noticed that certain unscrupulous brands were taking advantage of these consumers with poor quality products and dishonest marketing practices. So, we set out to change that. Our aim is for Cibidoil™ to become the most trusted CBD brand by consumers worldwide”.

Cibidoil™ is launching a range of Laboratory Grade Full Spectrum CBD Oils™ ranging from 5% CBD 500mg to 25% CBD 2500mg, for sale via their secure online store (
