EIHA’s Actions

EIHA asks the European Commission to develop harmonized guidelines for THC in hemp food products to overcome the existing patchwork of national regulations. Harmonized legislation should be applied in all member states. This will guarantee consumer safety and the further expansion of the hemp food industry, attract direct and indirect investments and create new jobs.
