It's a real hot topic! A few days ago, a parliamentary report asked "expressly for the authorization of the cultivation and use of all parts of the hemp plant". A first step towards more flexible cannabidiol (CBD) legislation.
Deputies, led by Jean-Baptiste Moreau, elected LRM of Creuse, presented Wednesday February 10 a report asking " expressly authorize the cultivation and use of all parts of the hemp plant ". Knowing that today, only fibers and seeds are exploited in French hemp fields. Not the flower.
Described as “well-being hemp”, CBD is at the heart of this new report from MEPs. It follows a first report devoted to therapeutic cannabis and should be followed in March by a third referring, this time, to recreational cannabis. " We have chosen to divide the file into three parts, because otherwise everyone would have focused on the subject of recreational cannabis. We must reassure technocracy "Says Ludovic Mendes, LRM deputy for Moselle in charge of the “well-being hemp” component.
Even if recreation is the most popular market for investors, with the hoped-for legalization of the THC molecule, the cannabis lobby is moving step by step. For the moment, in Europe, the level of THC in the cultivated hemp plant is limited to 0,2%. « France is the only country in Europe where a parliamentary process takes place » underlines Mr. Mendes.
