The European Commission’s Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (ScoPAFF) is not expected to vote on a proposal that would raise the acceptable amount of THC in marketable hemp foods in Europe until next week. The long-awaited vote, which has been delayed twice in the past, was originally scheduled for Monday, Feb. 28, but is far down on a crowded ScoPAFF agenda. Under the proposal, the THC level for hempseed-derived oil would be set to 7.5 mg/kg, while dry hemp foods such as hulled and dehulled hemp seeds, flour and protein powder would be limited to 3.0 mg/kg.
