Raw CBD flowers and leaves banned for sale to consumers

While the market for CBD – or cannabidiol – continues to develop in France, where it had a flourishing 2021, the government has decided to tighten the screw to regulate it more strictly. According to a decree published in the Official Journal Friday December 31, is now prohibited “The sale to consumers of raw flowers or leaves [de cannabidiol] in all their forms “ (to smoke or in herbal tea). Such a decision was expected. From now on, producers will only be able to sell flowers to professionals.

A decision that will not do the business of some 1,700 CBD shops listed in France by the Union of CBD professionals. Because, as L’Usine Nouvelle explained in September, if this cannabis molecule is mainly available in food products, cosmetics, e-liquids for vapers and even animal feed, it is in its simplest form, dried flowers, which it sells the most, with 70% of sales in CBD shops, according to the Union of CBD Professionals.
