A parliamentary commission yesterday called for medical marijuana to be available in apothecaries across Poland by doctor’s prescription. The substance would be imported, as the commission specifically recommended against domestic cultivation of marijuana.
CBD, which is on the market in Poland, was not addressed during the commission meeting, held Jan. 26. THC levels relevant to hemp-based food also was not a topic, sources reported to HempToday, indicating tacit approval for those products. Some in the industry had feared a directive to drastically reduce minimum THC levels below the generally accepted European norm of 0.2%, which would effectively destroy Polish hemp farming and the domestic hemp food market.
