FRANCE: Agnès Buzyn wants to shut down establishments that sell CBD.

Guest of the Grand Jury LCI / RTL / "Le Figaro" this Sunday, Agnès Buzyn, the Minister of Solidarity and Health, said she wanted to close establishments selling CBD and cannabis containing less than 0,2% THC.


A "BLUR" AROUND CBD THAT GROWS "HIDDEN PROMOTION"


These " coffee shops Have « hijacked the law by saying their cigarettes contain less than 0,2% THC », according to the minister who reminds that « any sale of cannabis for recreational use when this cannabis contains THC, regardless of the dose, is normally punishable by law ».

In recent months, several establishments of this kind have opened in France, selling products containing less than 0,2% THC, in accordance with the legislation on narcotics. This 0,2% rule is « a little blurry », recognised Agnès Buzyn.

Many products presented as containing CBD have recently appeared on the French market. These are mainly e-liquids for electronic cigarettes, cosmetics or capsules. If the regulations prohibit, in France, all operations concerning cannabis, there are certain exemptions which new economic players have seized upon. The exemptions concern the use of hemp for industrial and commercial purposes (textiles, automobiles, construction, stationery, etc.), as well as certain varieties of cannabis or hemp, devoid of narcotic properties.

In a recent legal focus on this file, the MILDECA reminds that « the rate of 0.2% THC is not a threshold for the presence of THC in the finished product but in the plant itself. However, checks carried out in certain products presented as containing CBD have revealed the presence of THC. The presence of THC in finished products, regardless of its level, is prohibited. »
