European markets facing difficulties from inconsistent enforcement

Retailers selling CBD wares in Europe are currently facing multiple hurdles, with unclear legislation often leading to roughshod enforcement from local authorities. In France, many stores face legal action; one German company claims to be unable to sell the bulk of its stock as a result of enforcement; in Ireland, retailers have been both raided by police and hit by the taxes on the same products. Nevertheless, there still appears to be great enthusiasm for the CBD retail and supply sector. This overview of the European countries, France, Germany, Ireland and UK, will help you to navigate the tentative market environment.
