September 13, 2023 | Category : Global CannaVigilance | Posted By : Team Cannavigia

Hello friends of CannaVigilance,

As you may have noticed, we have spent some time down South. A few weeks ago, we published our country report on Australia and this week we look at what is required when you want to grow legally in New Zealand. Which brings us to another point: Before you start growing in a country it is very important to weigh up all the options that country has to offer. We have compiled a checklist of things that should play a role in making that decision. Happy reading.

A vigilant eye on cannabis news

  • What is the catalyst for the growth in acceptance of the cannabis plant? Rolling Stone magazine has some ideas about it.  
  • After much hooha, the shift toward legalisation of cannabis across Europe has been slow. Bloomberg looks at what is happening
  • In a recent study in Australia, researchers evaluated health-related quality of life and other outcomes in patients taking medicinal cannabis. Around 47% of Australians have chronic health conditions, with one in five persons experiencing persistent chronic pain. 
  • Polynesian president, Moetai Brotherson announced this week that the project to legalise CBD was ready. These products must be devoid of narcotic properties. In Polynesia’s tropical climates cannabis plants produce an excess of phytocannabinoids, making it difficult for the local industry to maintain the 0.3% THC threshold. 
  • Doctors at Prague‘s Apolinář Addiction Clinic, the oldest Czech alcohol treatment center, warned against legalising marijuana. They declared that they “stand for decriminalisation and depenalisation, but what is unacceptable to us is commercialisation.” 
  • As Switzerland sees the launch of its second cannabis pilot, Cannavigia co-founder Philipp Hagenbach, shares his insights on the country’s approach to reform. The project targets a size of 374 individuals split equally into two groups – the experimental group and the control group.
