THC is the active substance in cannabis which results in a high. 

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in cannabis. It is not psychoactive – people don’t get high from it – and CBD products can be legally sold in Ireland, but there are restrictions.

Intension Premium Quality Hemp Oil (all bottle sizes) is being recalled due to unsafe levels of THC and an unauthorised novel food hemp extract containing CBD. All batches with all best before dates are being recalled. 

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) announced the recall on its website today.
