Canada: Industrial Hemp Production Trade and Regulation

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Canada has grown hemp, primarily for hemp seed, across the Prairies for more than 20 years. The 2018 Cannabis Act relaxed regulatory controls on industrial hemp, in addition to legalizing recreational cannabis, and cannabidiol extraction is now permitted. Production and distribution of cannabinoids and cannabinoid containing-products are highly regulated, with products appearing in licensed cannabis stores or for medical purposes.
