The opportunity for cannabidiol – the cannabis compound du jour that’s better known as CBD – in Europe is forecast to grow at a heady clip over the next several years, but the continent is rife with a complex regulatory patchwork that could make the sector difficult to navigate, according to Bethany Gomez, managing director at Brightfield Group, which released a report Tuesday analyzing Europe's legal CBD market. 

"Europe is a very nascent cannabis market," Gomez said in a phone interview with BNN Bloomberg. "It’s just starting to take off but tailwinds are there."

British study links high potency cannabis to psychosis

A study published on Tuesday in British medical journal, the Lancet Psychiatry, states that high potency cannabis or heavy use of cannabis can induce psychosis and can be harmful for mental health.

Dr. Marta Di Forti, lead author of study and clinician scientist at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London, said that psychotic disorder was specifically studied.

The researchers examined data from 11 different sites that treat psychosis – 10 across Europe and one in Brazil. They looked at 901 patients who had a first-time episode of psychosis over five years and compared them to more than 1,237 matched non-patients.

CBD Ban: Brits take up fight and send lawyers to Brussels

Cannabis lawyers are heading to Brussels next week to challenge a recent decision by the European Union to reclassify food products containing cannabidiol (CBD) and prohibit their sale.

While the rest of the western world moves towards acceptance of cannabis products either medically or recreationally, the European Union pushed back in February, updating a classification of CBD under the Novel Food Regulation.

The law ((EU) 2015/2283), which applies across all member states, means any product deemed as ‘novel’ must gain authorization from food authorities before it can be sold as a foodstuff within the EU.  Food can be considered ‘novel’ if it was not consumed by humans to any significant degree prior to May 1997.
