EFSA | Statement on safety of cannabidiol as a novel food: data gaps and uncertainties
The European Commission has determined that cannabidiol (CBD) can be considered as a novel food (NF), and currently, 19 applications are under assessment at EFSA. While assessing these, it has become clear that there are knowledge gaps that need to be addressed before a conclusion on the safety of CBD can be reached.

Literature searches for both animal and human studies have been conducted to identify safety concerns.
