Expert webinar: CBD-infused foodstuffs and the law in SA

Since the Department of Health announced that Cannabidiol (CBD) can be sold legally, the sale of CBD-infused beverages, soaps, oils and even food has exploded onto the market.

This webinar talk, hosted in mid-November by SAAFoST’s Northern Branch, is now available online.
