Thunderclap in the small world of CBD (cannabidiol)! Indeed, a European court decision has just concluded that this molecule present in cannabis has " no psychotropic effect or harmful effect on health ". This decision, which comes from Europe, should have consequences on French law and in particular on the ban of this product in the country.
Remember! A few months ago now, the CBD ou cannabidiol made its arrival on the French market. Whether in the form of a plant, e-liquid or even derivative products, the product made from hemp, also called cannabis, very quickly established itself in many shops. Indeed, in 2018, dozens of stores specializing in CBD opened across France before the Minister of Health, Agnes Buzyn do not force their closures.
A legal vagueness that has since prevented the product's development in France. However, yesterday, Thursday, November 19, a dramatic turn! The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has ruled illegal the ban in France on the marketing of cannabidiol (CBD), stressing that this molecule present in hemp (or Cannabis sativa) n / A « no psychotropic effect or harmful effect on human health ».
The judgment of the CJEU concerns cannabidiol « legally produced in another member state of the European Union when it is extracted from the plant Cannabis sativa in its entirety ». It should, thus, deprive of legal basis of many lawsuits in France.
