Philippines: Industrial Hemp Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Hemp, marijuana, and cannabis from the plant Cannabis sativa L. are terms interchangeably used in the Philippines. It is a prohibited drug which carries harsh penalties for its importation, sale, manufacture, cultivation, possession, and use. Although there are exceptions to hemp imports (i.e., for medicinal use and in some processed forms), trade is minimal. Post foresees no change in the regulatory environment that would allow hemp trade in the next five years or through 2024.
