CBD Natuurlijk: entirely legal and freely available

In 1912, the Opium Act was implemented in the Netherlands, which banned products made from the hemp plant. In 1999, the law was amended so that the cultivation of hemp grown for fibre could be legalised. The production of CBD from hemp is still illegal, which means this part of the process still takes place abroad. However, selling CBD with a THC percentage of less than 0.2% is legal, allowing the product to be freely available as a dietary supplement.


CBD is not recognised as a medicine in the Netherlands. The product is therefore freely available, but is not reimbursed by health insurers. Expectations are that this may change in the future. Cannabidiol is not included in the Traffic Act. This means you can safely use it before getting in the car. There are no legal limits for the amount you may have in your blood, so should you have to take a saliva test you can rest assured there will be no repercussions.

The above applies to regular over-the-counter CBD, of which the THC content is always below 0.2%. Be wary of products of which you don't know the origins, such as homemade CBD. Because of the abundance of CBD products, the quality of a product is not always clear. The CBD oil from CBD Natuurlijk has been tested by independent laboratories, so you are always assured of a product with the legal amount of THC.
