When is National CBD Day?


National CBD Day is Sunday the 8th of August 2021.

What is National CBD Day?


A day to celebrate everything related to the marvellous cannabinoid known as cannabidiol, or as most people simply call it; CBD.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has its day in the spot light with 420 which takes place on the 20th April. It’s a celebration of enjoying THC in the form of cannabis flower.

Thanks to the growing popularity amongst patients, health advocates and wellness gurus, CBD too now has a day!

Interestingly there are over 113 different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, will we see a day for each one of them? Probably not and more than likely they’ll all be adopted under National CBD day (National Cannabinoid Day?).

Did you know Bud & Tender CBD Cannabis Oil contains CBG, CBC, CBDV and CBT in addition to CBD? We’ll be celebrating these cannabinoids along side CBD on the 8th August. After all, they do work better when their together (entourage effect).

What is the point of National CBD day?


Cannabis has been illegal in the UK since the 28th September 1928, when it was added to the Dangerous Drugs Act 1920.

To this day, there are 12 controlled cannabinoids in the UK with the most well-known being THC, CBN and THCV. The great news is that CBD is not a controlled cannabinoid, it is widely available for all to benefit from.  

Medical THC cannabis was legalised in 2018 and interestingly enough, the UK is the largest medical cannabis producer in the world.

A 2019 report by the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board estimates that the UK produced 320 tonnes of legal cannabis in 2019, this was more than triple the 2016 total of 95 tonnes.

UK cannabis production in 2019 accounted for 75% of the global total (468.3 tonnes). This makes the UK, number 1 in the world when it comes to cannabis.

CBD comes from the cannabis plant and if the UK is number 1 for cannabis, it makes sense to celebrate CBD as the new popular cannabinoid in the spot light (just behind THC).

The real point of the day is to spread the awareness of this amazing cannabinoid and to educate the wider public to the true health value of cannabis of which CBD is one part.  

Is National CBD Day just for the UK?


Not any more, it’s being widely adopted across the EU and even in the USA.
