An overview of intoxicating hemp-derived cannabinoids in Europe

Intoxicating hemp-derived cannabinoids (IHDCs), such as delta-8 THC and hexahydrocannabinol (HHC), have become a disruptive force in the cannabis and hemp industries in the US due to unique language in federal law that has paved the way for these products to be sold nearly anywhere. The success that IHDC products have enjoyed in the US has led many companies to explore whether there is a market for them in Europe.

This report examines the basic regulatory framework for the most popular IHDC product categories and identifies the IHDC product that is most likely to be allowed in Europe.
