CBD Products Removed from Shelves in Portugal Amidst Regulatory Struggles, BRITISH CANNABIS™ Steps In as the Ideal Solution
The hemp industry in Portugal faces continuous challenges, especially concerning the sale of CBD (Cannabidiol) products. Portugal’s Food and Economic Security Authority (ASAE) seized more than 4 million units of CBD products over the last four years due to CBD being classified as a ‘novel food.’ The current regulatory ambiguity leaves the flourishing CBD market in limbo, not just in Portugal but across Europe.
In this unprecedented situation, British company BRITISH CANNABIS™ emerges as an innovative and legally compliant solution to the CBD crisis in Portugal and beyond.
Regulatory Uncertainty in Portugal
The ASAE has inspected 208 operators in Portugal in the last four years, seizing over 4.3 million units and 74.6 litres of CBD products. Despite CBD products being widely available across the country and the European Court of Justice ruling that member states can’t ban the sale of CBD, confusion persists.
Although CBD extracted from industrial hemp is commonly found in various health products, it is still not clear whether it should be classified as a novel food. This uncertainty leads to frequent inspections and seizures of CBD products in Portugal, hindering the industry’s growth and impacting the supply to consumers seeking natural alternatives to traditional medicines.
