Prohibition of the sale of products containing CBD in the Czech Republic

Updated: May 29, 2023

On 25 April 2023, the Ministry of Agriculture and the State Agricultural and Food Inspection Authority (SZPI) informed on their websites about a forthcoming measure to ban the sale of food and food supplements containing CBD and other cannabionides. On the Czech market, these products are mostly found in the form of oils, tinctures, jellies, candies, sweets, capsules, etc.

This forthcoming measure follows the EC statement published in mid-April this year confirming that cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis sativa L. (hemp) plant are considered novel foods and must not be placed on the EU market unless their safety has been verified by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

On the basis of this information, the SZPI has the power to restrict or prohibit the placing on the market of these products. Once a marketing ban has been issued, CBD products cannot be resold.

The full communication, which is only available in Czech, can be found at this link:
