A new cannabis association in Germany says its work will fully embrace industrial hemp as it aims to set a constructive legal and regulatory landscape for cannabis in Europe’s biggest market.
The mission of the newly-formed Cannabis Industry Association (BvCW) is to establish an innovative and sustainable market for cannabis products based on consumer protection and the observance of quality standards
“We have a lot of educational work ahead of us to prepare Germany for competition in the international marketplace,” said Marijn Roersch van der Hoogte of consultancy MRHemp, who serves as a vice president of the new group.
Roersch van der Hoogte said outdated THC limit values and issues related to the use of cannabis as raw material for food and food supplements are among the critical issues affecting hemp that the group will address.
Fourteen companies representing a wide range of cannabis interests were present at a formative meeting of the BvCW recently held in Berlin. The group is a spin-off of the German Hemp Association (DHV), which works on civil rights issues related to cannabis. BvCW, in a statement, said it will focus more on “politics, economy, science and the media aspects of the cannabis economy.”
