International Cannabis Business Conference Canada

 In 2016, Switzerland reformed its law to allow the cultivation of hemp with up to 1% THC. Swiss cannabis flowers are now sold as a tobacco substitute and more than 600 companies are registered to produce CBD based flowers, oils, edibles, and other products, exporting them all over the world. Switzerland is making progress towards fully legalizing cannabis and the International Cannabis Business Conference is proud to make Zurich our third European stop to form a superconference with CannaTrade.

This panel will provide the latest info on the burgeoning international scene and provide a glimpse into the future of an industry that is only going to continue to grow, nation by nation, including the latest about the EU requiring that CBD products fall under the jurisdiction of the European Commissions “Novel Food” Legislation.
