Mexico: Hemp Regulation and Trade in Mexico

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   MX2022-0016

This report outlines the current situation for hemp and hemp-related products in Mexico. Given the proximity in both geographic and cultural terms, the growth in the industrial hemp sector in the United States is clearly recognized in Mexico. However, years of illicit cannabis cultivation in Mexico, and the resulting strict legal framework designed to prevent drug trafficking currently restricts potential for related items that have established a legal presence in the United States and other countries. Trade in hemp products is also limited, but the United States holds a sizeable market share of what hemp fiber products Mexico does import.
