Colombia has made first legal shipment of cannabis to the United States

For the first time legally, Colombia exported to the US an extract with a high THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content, the main psychoactive cannabinoid derived from cannabis and a controlled substance under international treaties.

On March 30th, the Colombian company NatuEra, a subsidiary of the Canadian Cronos Group, sent THC extract to the U.S. company Biopharmaceutical Research Company, which will use it for scientific research composition and safety of cannabis in vapor form. The results of this study will serve to guide the public policy discussions that are advancing in that country on the legalization of cannabis at the federal level through a responsible regulatory framework based on science.
