Germany Leads EU in Cannabis Oil Imports…and Exports

In 2019, Germany led the EU in both cannabis oil imports and exports, and not by small numbers. The Germans are proving themselves to be big cannabis users, and big cannabis producers as well.

When it comes to the cannabis market, the EU is a large and growing market of consumers which doesn’t produce as much as it uses. It also still has several parts which haven’t legalized cannabis under any circumstances, medical or otherwise, leaving the door open for future expansion as laws loosen up across Europe in the next few years.
