INTOXICATION CLAUSE FOR INDUSTRIAL HEMP TO BE CANCELLED

This is taken from an article written by Jule Steinbrück for TOM HEMPS a popular Berlin CBD company. It seems they, like us, remain frustrated with the lack of government leadership when it comes to hemp. Özdemir is suggesting the hemp law is going to be updated soon, which any responsible government should have done 5 years ago. Let’s hope the CBD law is updated before we all die of old age or the police kick in our doors again. The article is fun and well written, we hope they don’t mind we borrowed a section of it without asking.

INTOXICATION CLAUSE FOR INDUSTRIAL HEMP TO BE CANCELLED (Jule Steinbrück)

And amidst all the question marks and incomprehensibilities about a law that seems somehow ill-conceived in terms of implementation, there is also some relief. In the current CanG, industrial hemp is subject to an intoxication clause. So THC is legal, but CBD is not… Germany has achieved this feat single-handedly, because worldwide you look for it in vain, because it is simply as absurd as lifeguards at Olympic swimming competitions. With the difference that they have earned their right and all respect.

This week, the Cannabis Industry Association (BvCW) invited representatives of Tom Hemp’s to a parliamentary evening. Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture Cem Özdemir personally gave a speech there and announced that the so-called intoxication clause for industrial hemp is to be canceled. Özdemir emphasised the wide range of possible applications and the importance of industrial hemp for greater sustainability. And there it was, the ray of hope regarding the gradual amendment of the Cannabis Act. However, anyone hoping for news on the second pillar will have to wait for another time. Because there is currently no news on this.

For us, with CBD as our first great love that never fades, we are left at this point with the joy of insight and somehow also the hope that someone will somehow adapt this important law in the spirit of destigmatisation and combating the black market. Full stop… for now.

SEE YOU GREENING.
