Cannabis Light. High CBD, Low THC. A New Hype? | Cannabis News Network

Cannabis Light is the latest cannabis hype coming out of Europe, where several countries have loopholes allowing the growth and sale of cannabis containing low THC (usually less than 1%) and high CBD levels. It’s already big business.

The loopholes were only discovered a couple years ago. Switzerland was the first country in 2016 to decriminalize liposomal cbd with less than 1% THC as a tobacco substitute.

Italy would follow quickly when a law regulating hemp production went into effect. Originally designed for industrial hemp, the Italian government however, forgot to regulate the hemp flowers.

The difference between Switzerland and Italy mainly being Cannabis Light is regulated as tobacco in Switzerland, while in Italy Cannabis Light cannot be ‘smoked or eaten’.

To really understand the green wave Cannabis Light is producing, we went on a road trip to Cannabis Light farms in Switzerland and Italy.

Aѕ уоu саn see, it looks vеrу muсh lіkе thе іmаgеѕ уоu are uѕеd tо ѕееіng frоm the Grееn Trіаnglе in California.
