German Court Ruling Now Allows Hemp in Food

To be clear, the recent court decision is not specifically related to hemp in food, but by clearing hemp tea sellers of trafficking charges, the German court ruling opened a door to allow hemp products in food.

The world of cannabis just got bigger as a German court ruling opened the door for hemp to be used in food. This is as exciting as the advent of delta-8 THC products, and the ability to get the same kind of benefits as standard THC, while experiencing less psychoactive effects, and less anxiety. We can even help you get started if you’re a beginner with this new THC. Check out our awesome delta-8 THC deals, and join in on the excitement!

Prescribing Cannabis: A German Doctor At The Forefront of The Medical Revolution

Here is the first thing you need to know about Franjo, as he is more apt to be known to both patients and others: he is a board-certified German medical artz (physician). 

Here is the second: he is also a doctor with a disability.

As a result of this, he has a unique perspective on the topic of cannabis as medicine that few in either the scientific or medical professions can match in both his medical training and his sympathy for patients.

Growing cannabis at home: how COVID-19 has fueled a boom around the world

Back in the days when “skunk” was mainly associated with Pepé Le Pew and hydroponics was a way of improving cucumbers, most of the UK’s cannabis supply was imported from places such as Morocco and Lebanon. This changed in the past two or three decades in the UK and many other countries as organised criminal gangs set up growing operations closer to home.

On the Defining Edge of a New Market: The New German Cannabis Distributors

The German medical cannabis market that has evolved since 2017 when the law formally changed to mandate that public health insurance cover medical cannabis, is a very different beast than any that have come before it. Starting with the fact that on the medical side, those who grow and distribute as well as dispense the plant and medicines derived from it, must be certified at a high, formal, federal, level before they can become part of the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Germany’s Medical Cannabis Flower Imports Hit Record High

The final quarter of 2020 saw medical cannabis flower imports into Germany reach more than 3.2 tonnes.

Prohibition Partners reports Germany saw 37% year-on-year growth in flower imports. However, the year-on-year growth was well down on 2018 and 2019, which both topped 100%.

The situation in Germany has been the result of problematic implementation of domestic production, although the first locally cultivated and manufactured medical cannabis products should be available in March this year, with domestic cultivators expected to supply Germany with at least 2,600 kilograms of medical cannabis per year.

A new report notes that Germany set a record by importing nearly 10,000 kilograms of medical cannabis in 2020, but its relationship with exporters is beginning to change as more countries sign supply agreements and domestic production ramps up.

From 2018 to 2019, the amount of medical cannabis imports grew by 100 per cent, but increased only 37 per cent in 2020, according to new analysis from Prohibition Partners, a global cannabis market intelligence firm.

 At a time when the United States is celebrating a nail-biting democratic transfer of power, a move is afoot in Germany to face, finally, the last vestiges of Nazi influence. And while at first glance it may sound “trivial” to Germans and Auslanders (foreigners) alike, it is not. Its impact on the cannabis industry might also be highly and positively disruptive.

THE biggest Australian commercial shipment of locally-grown and good manufacturing practice-manufactured medicinal cannabis oils has been exported into the lucrative German market by WA-based Little Green Pharma (LGP).

The shipment was anticipated to clear customs in Germany during the course of this week, following which LGP expects the shipment to be batch-tested and released for sale to the German market.

Germany has the largest legal medicinal cannabis flower market in the EU, and it’s about to expand out even further. With imports coming from Canada and even Uruguay, the German cannabis flower market is, indeed, ready to fully explode.​

Germany has been growing its medical cannabis market in the last few years. According to worldstopexports for 2019, Germany imported $240 million worth of cannabis oil – or 7.8% of all cannabis imports for the year, making it the second largest importer behind the US. In that same time period, it also exported $230 million worth of cannabis oil – or 8% of the market for the year.
