A European country analysis of intoxicating hemp-derived cannabinoids

In analysing the European framework for hemp-derived products, CannIntelligence has previously identified the hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) vape as the intoxicating hemp-derived cannabinoid (IHDC) product that is most likely to be legal in some European countries because it is not THC, and vaping products are generally less regulated than other major formats like foods.

CannIntelligence has analysed regulations and contacted authorities in the majority of European countries to determine the legality of IHDCs. The analysis is based on several factors, including a country’s regulation of cannabinoid-containing vaping products, its regulation of hemp, and its definitions of cannabis-related substances in its narcotics list.
