“This [CBD oil] has become a multi million pound industry, but we’ve discovered that red tape is preventing British farmers from getting involved,” she noted.  After talking to one guest, Sharon, who had medicated her joint pain with CBD oil, Charlotte reassured viewers.  “I suspect I know what you might be thinking, but let’s be absolutely clear, no one in there is getting high, CBD oil has almost no THC in it and THC is the psychoactive drug normally associated with cannabis.” She then travelled to a “secret location in Somerset” which is legally growing cannabis plants.  “No UK farmer has ever been given a license to turn the bud into valuable CBD oil, and that red tape is locking farmers out of a market worth much more than traditional plants,” Charlotte explained.
