At the International Cannabis Policy Conference organized by FAAAT, we got to interview Dr. Jonathan Newman. Dr. Jonathan Newman is a social anthropologist at the University of Sussex, where he researches the cannabis industry in Europe.

You may have heard about the Paris Agreement before, as Trump famously said he would withdraw the United States of America from the accord. However, the rest of the world is still very much in favor of the Paris Agreement which deals with climate change. The Paris Agreement is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and starting in the year 2020. This too will affect the cannabis industry.

WHO, stuck between politics How to reschedule cannabis within the UN

Since 1961 The United Nations looks upon cannabis as a Schedule I drug with “no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” The plant is scheduled as a dangerous drug, like heroin, in the Single Convention on Narcotic and Drugs.
But things are about to change!
Earlier this year, the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence, part of the World Health Organization, released a pre-review report of cannabis that included several positive, evidentiary findings. And, cannabis has not been on the agenda of the World Health Organization since 1954.
Now in 2018, we are present at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs 61st reconvened session in Vienna to watch the recommendations, how to re-schedule cannabis, presented by the WHO!

Watch this first part of a Vienna Special.

We are due to make the second soon, The International Cannabis Policy Conference with even the best speakers ever we have not shown before. Stay tuned!

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 cannabis 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.

Will the full potential of hemp be blocked?

The full potential of hemp is endless. No other plant in the world can feed you, then clothe you and you can build your house with. And if you’re sick, it might help you. Hemp will alter products in your home, from food to building materials to paper.

The main boost to the hemp industry comes from the increasing acknowledgment of the beneficial cannabinoids in the plant, like cannabidiol or CBD. CBD has a plethora of health benefits, with no side-effects, and is more and more used as a food supplement and an ingredient in cosmetics.

Regulations are in the works, but will they benefit hemp producers and it’s users? Go more in-depth and read up at: https://www.cannabisnewsnetwork.com/potential-of-hemp-blocked/
