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/
