So what about Hemp and CBD in China?

In China, just about 2.800 B.C, the first rope in the world was twisted out of hemp fibres and at the same time, the first paper was created out of hemp. There are indications that in the 28th century B.C. in China, clothes were also made out of hemp fibres. The oldest, preserved textile is dated back to approx. 1000 B.C. In the 17th century at the pinnacle of sailing, hemp experienced its heyday in Europe. Into the 18th century hemp fibres together with flax, nettle und wool were the central raw materials of the European textile industry. For paper production, pulp was produced out of rags.
The decline of the hemp industry began in the 18th century and continued until the end of the 20th century. Hemp became nearly insignificant. The cotton spinning industrialization commenced a victorious, worldwide conquest for cotton textiles.

So what is happening with hemp nowadays in China?

We talked with YanHua Huang, director Bioneovation about the enormous boost of hemp products, containing no more than 0.3% THC, in all its forms. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the non-psychotropic cannabinoids in industrial hemp. Since 2 years it is fully allowed in China. Cannabidiol not only has a plethora of beneficial health effects, but it also has no relevant side-effects, even when it is administered at high doses. CBD is increasingly used as a food supplement and in food supplement compositions, and ingredient in cosmetics.

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.
