For the avoidance of doubt, the content, layout and format of any Magazine or Website will be subject to variation at ORANGE FOX MEDIA LTD’s sole discretion.


Advertisers should be aware that content within this publication must be compliant with the rulings of governing bodies, including but not limited to, the Advertising Standards Authority (the ASA), the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK and if in the USA, the Food and Drug Administration (the FDA). 

Products submitted to be featured must derive from an approved hemp strain containing no more than 0.2% THC. Products sent to be featured cannot contain more  than 1mg THC per finished product, as per Home Office guidelines.

In agreement with these terms, the advertiser takes responsibility of their own adverts with respect to the requirements of Novel Food Regulations. 

[The publisher will not accept any liability for publishing an advert featuring a non-compliant product, in the case where the advertiser has misinformed the publisher, either accidentally or intentionally, that the product is compliant with any CBD regulations, including Novel Foods.] 

The publisher sought guidance from the ASA in advance of the March 31, 2021 Novel Foods compliance deadline. In agreement with these terms, the advertiser agrees to comply with the following guidance:  

In written advice distributed to the publisher on February 9, 2021, the ASA said:

“We are aware that some CBD containing products are likely to be classed as Novel Foods. As stated in our guidance on CBD product advertising, we understand that risk assessments and authorisations are required before those foods can be sold (see our advice on legality here).

“You should not advertise a product in any media (including magazines or print media) unless the product can be legally sold. It is an advertiser’s responsibility to first establish that they have any necessary authorisation for any product and that the product can be legally sold before advertising it.  

“If you are unsure about the status of any CBD product we advise that you contact the FSA to establish if the product will be considered a novel food before selling, or advertising, the product. You may find this FSA guidance, which relates to novel foods useful, along with this guidance which gives information about CBD products specifically. I am afraid we are unable to advise on FSA guidance and as such we advise that you contact the FSA if you have any queries about this.”

The publisher reserves the right not to feature products with claims of medicinal, health or wellbeing benefits without notice (marketing authorisation) that this has been approved by the necessary authorities. The publisher reserves the right to amend artwork or statements deemed unfit for publication by The Editor.

Cover elements which are deemed unfit by The Editor will not be published.

Advertisers may need to liaise with the ORANGE FOX MEDIA LTD design team to find a collaborate on cover designs.

ORANGE FOX MEDIA LTD reserves the right to transfer covers sold to earlier or later issues, and will notify the client of the reason for doing so in such a case.
