Podcast: Why is the regulation of CBD in Spain interesting?

Our host for today’s podcast is CBD-Intel data editor Lydia Thompson. She is joined by legal analyst Elsa Carrasco, who has had worked in the legal sector and as a research assistant at Elcano Royal Institute, a think-tank for international and European affairs, and now works for CBD-Intel in European and international regulatory analysis.

In Spain, as in other EU countries, interest in CBD has increased. However, market development is hampered by legal uncertainties and complexity. The cultivation of hemp for industrial purposes is allowed in Spain as long as the THC content of the plant is not above 0.2%. However, the law doesn’t specify what parts of the hemp plant can be processed.
