08-05-2019 - Canadian consumers and industry require a more appropriate regulatory environment for CBD and other hemp-derived cannabinoids

Today, the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance (CHTA) and the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) call for improvements to Canadian regulations, which currently treat all phytocannabinoids, including CBD (cannabidiol), as “drugs.” Chronic shortages persist for a number of CBD-based products through both the medical cannabis and regulated retail cannabis markets, which is enabling a large and growing illegal market for unregulated CBD products of unknown purity, potency and provenance.

 Canadian Hemp: A Plant with Opportunity

Since 1998, Canada has grown industrial hemp for seed and for fibre. Canadian farmers and businesses are interested in the growing business of hemp as it realizes its potential to produce healthy food and environmentally friendly products, including paper, textiles, biocomposites and sustainable building materials.

Today Canada’s hemp sector is growing to provide secure supplies of hemp seed and fibre raw materials for domestic and international markets, as well as many processed and conditioned value–added products. Canada’s federal hemp regulations help to create quality, safety and accountability. A supportive scientific research community ensures that essential and necessary research continues ~ critical for any crop.

As a fast–growing annual, hemp is a renewable, reusable and recyclable resource. Changing environments in the world’s business community are helping to turn these green attributes into a valued quality.
