As professional growers and keen advocates of CBD, you will have noticed our numerous articles flying the green flag wherever we can! We have a passion for explaining the benefits it can bring. Medicinal cannabis has even been labelled as a “miracle plant” and has quickly become a regular dietary supplement for nearly 337,900 Britons – a predicted forecast for 2024. 
So although it may have been a surprise for some of you when CBD products suddenly appeared on the shelves of popular high street store, Holland & Barrett back in early 2017, CBD has actually been used for hundreds of years all around the globe. However CBD hasn’t been easily accessible compared to now, due to how it has been stigmatised.
Have you ever wondered after purchasing a tincture bottle of CBD oil, “will this expire?” Well, it all depends on what the product is infused with, which is typically MTC oil and flavoured extracts, dependant on potency and strength. It’s not always straightforward to know which brands can be trusted. With the growth of the industry, many merchants offer questionable products and they all claim to be as reliable or high-quality as the next. And until the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lays down some solid regulations, there will always be this risk in terms of low-quality product. 
The real fact is, CBD oil can go bad, but most CBD products are good for at least 12 months.  However, if you purchased CBD over a year ago and it’s made no use other than making a nice bathroom ornament… you may want to replenish the shelf and start reaping the benefits ASAP.
So although it technically does expire, CBD that’s past its prime won’t typically spoil, turn rancid, or make you sick; however, it may begin to lose potency once it’s expired. Over time, the CBD can begin to oxidise and break down (and evaporate), making it less effective as compared to when it was fresh.
