Cannabis Culture From Rastafarian to Hash in Afghanistan
(Afghanistan, Alcohol, Beverage, Cannabis, Education, France, Genetics, Growing, India, Italy, Jamaica, Legalization, Netherlands, Production, Recreational, Spain, Recreational Cannabis, Funding) These cultural attitudes toward cannabis are shaped by historical experiences. A global revolution in attitudes towards the cannabis plant is well and truly underway. In the west, much of the work involves undoing the damage done by the ‘war on drugs’. Other countries, however, already have laid back attitudes towards the plant. From Indian to Rastafarian culture, there’s no evidence that tolerance or acceptance of cannabis ever led to a heroin epidemic, or a generation of unemployed bums . The Netherlands: Historical Liberal Attitudes Adults don’t like to be told what to do. And it was back in the 1970s when the Dutch had the good sense to stop prosecuting cannabis users. The Dutch are a tolerant bunch when it comes to cannabis use, and many of them can take it or leave it. A surprisingly percentage of the population is never bother with it. In fact, the world-famous Amsterdam coffee-shops are frequented by substantially more tourists than locals. According to the United Nations Drug...

Hemp CBD Across Europe: Spain
(Cannabis, CBD, Cosmetics, Facilities, Food, Foods, Hemp, Law, Legalization, Marketing, Pet Foods, Production, Products, Regulations, Research, Spain, Strains, United States, Industrial Hemp, THC, Extracts) The enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill and the legalization of hemp and hemp derivatives, including cannabidiol (“CBD”), has led to a massive CBD craze in the United States. The highly coveted cannabinoid is infused with everything: bath bombs, dog treats and even workout clothes (yes, workout clothes!). According to a recent study by Cowen , the sales of these products are expected to reach $16 billion by 2025. Thanks to globalization, this sudden boom is not contained within the U.S. borders. Europe has also experienced a huge uptick in the sales of these products, which are expected to reach nearly $1.7 billion by 2023. In light of this global expansion and the desire of many of our clients to export their hemp and hemp-derived CBD (“Hemp CBD”) products to Europe, we are presenting a mini-series that briefly analyzes how certain European countries treat hemp and the sale and marketing of hemp-derived CBD. In the second post of these series, we now turn our attention to Spain, whose...

8 Men Arrested for Having a Drug-Fueled Orgy During Quarantine
(Spain) Photo via Police officers in Barcelona, Spain working to enforce the country’s strict COVID-19 lockdown policy encountered a surprising scene this week, after discovering an apartment housing an 8-person orgy complete with cocaine, MDMA, and crystal meth. According to concurrent reports from The Sun and the Olive Press , cops were alerted to the debaucherous party by an orgy invitee who said that they felt uncomfortable about disobeying Spain’s rigid isolation guidelines. After arriving at the apartment building in response to the tip, officers were mistaken for more party guests and buzzed right into the apartment. Once the plainclothes officers were invited in, they identified themselves as cops and began making arrests. In addition to charges for flaunting the coronavirus quarantine orders, police also found illicit quantities of cocaine, MDMA, and crystal meth and charged all 8 men with possession of narcotics. During the orgy bust, one participant was coughing so much that...

European CBD Sales: Securing a Novel Food Authorization
(Austria, Belgium, Cannabis, CBD, Czech Republic, Food, Marketing, Netherlands, Products, Regulations, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Extracts) Last year, the European Union reclassified extracts of Cannabis sativa L. and derived products containing cannabinoids, including CBD , as a “Novel Food” under the EU Novel Food Catalogue . The reclassification was based on the lack of demonstrated history of human consumption of these extracts and of any product to which they might be added. Indeed, pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 2015/2283 (the “Regulation”), a “novel food” is any food that was not significantly used for human consumption within the European Union before May 15, 1997. As such, a novel food must be approved by the European Commission (the “Commission”) and the European Food Safety Authority (“ EFSA ”), which is the Food and Drug Administration’s European counterpart, before it can be lawfully marketed. Novel food includes newly developed food, innovative food, food produced through new technology and processes as well as food traditionally consumed outside of the European Union. As of today, the EFSA has received no...

It Takes The Village
(Argentina, Banking, Bar, Brazil, California, Cannabis, CBD, Facilities, Genetics, Grower, Growing, Medical Marijuana, Regulations, Spain, Strains, Testing, United States, Lights, Dispensaries, Extracts, Cultivation) When people talk about California’s legendary cannabis, they frequently mention growing ganja grown deep in the Emerald Triangle and weed sparked up on the bustling streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco. But there’s another region in the Golden State that is now demanding attention. Since California’s adult-use cannabis market came online in 2018, Sacramento has exploded onto the scene as a hub of top-shelf indoor cultivation. Few people in town — perhaps only Gov. Gavin Newsom — have helped push Sacramento to the top of the cannabis stratosphere more than its cultivators, who are growing some of the best cannabis in the world. But in recent years, one local cultivator has pushed the envelope so far that everyone else in town (and across the state) is now growing the genetics he’s helped curate and breed. As half of Symbiotic Genetics , The Village finds himself among a small group of cultivators giving Sacramento’s cannabis a global reach. At one point, there was so much of his...

On the High End
(Branding, California, Cannabis, CBD, Education, Genetics, Grower, Growers, Growing, Investment, New York, Organic, Products, Regulations, Science, Spain, Strains, Testing, United States, Vaporizers, THC, Dispensaries, Cultivation, Intellectual Property) In the early 2000s, that golden age of Proposition 215 cannabis in California, Mario “Mr. Sherbinski” Guzman was a regular supplier for San Francisco’s legendary Vapor Room. Back then, nobody had heard the name Sherbinski and the notion of a cannabis brand was still an abstraction. Today, nearly two decades later, his company Sherbinskis is on the short list of still-relevant adult-use brands with uninterrupted roots in California’s self-regulated 215 market. But before Sherbinski’s cannabis was getting name-dropped in rap hits and sold through fancy department stores, Afgoo cold water hash washed from Sherbinski bud by the man himself was a menu staple at the Vapor Room , and a crucial part of my daily routine. For years, the best part of waking up was smoking a bowl of chocolate-black bubble hash with a cup of tar-black coffee on a rickety fire escape overlooking the intersection of Oak and Fillmore streets. I’m thinking about this memory as I catch myself staring dreamily out the...

Coronavirus Is Killing Weed Legalization Bills Across the US
(Cannabis, China, France, Iran, Italy, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Recreational, Spain, United States) As the COVID-19 pandemic consumes every waking — and sleeping — moment right now, marijuana legalization bills that had excellent chances at becoming law are instead getting shelved. State lawmakers across the US are suspending their legislative sessions for weeks or months to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, even as progressive states deem marijuana businesses as “essential services” alongside emergency responders and pharmacies amid the pandemic. Cannabis reform bills aren’t being singled out for delays, but rather they are no longer prioritized as states attempt to control the coronavirus crisis that threatens the lives of millions of at-risk individuals and the nation’s economy. Last week, New York State’s chances of making progress on its recreational legalization bill stalled as legislators scrambled to restructure the state’s budget to address coronavirus containment, diagnosis, and treatment. Of all US states, New York has reported the highest number of confirmed...

How Coronavirus is Affecting the International Cannabis Industry
(AbbVie Inc., Canada, Cannabis, China, Events, Germany, Greece, Illinois, Investors, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Production, Recreational, Spain, Switzerland, United States, Dispensaries, Funding) Frankfurt: Germany right now is not the worst place to be as a global pandemic closes borders and leads predictably to mass change overnight, which is unparalleled during peacetime. But it is still eerie. Berlin and Cologne are starting to close public spaces (like restaurants, bars and clubs). The grocery stores and pharmacies are still stocked and open however- it is a national priority. On Germany’s borders, Europe is closing in a way it has not since WWII. The EU is considering banning all non EU “foreigners” from entering the region for nonessential reasons for the next 30 days – albeit in an environment where leaders are also concerned about making sure supplies get through to those who need them. It also feels like wartime – only this time the “enemy” is a virus. It is called COVID-19, and it is spreading. It cannot be “stopped” although authorities are now doing everything they can to slow it down. At risk are not only populations but also vulnerable health care systems. The...

Cops Are Now Ignoring Low-Level Crimes During the Coronavirus Pandemic
(ACB, Colorado, France, Italy, Ohio, Oregon, Spain, United States) Police in certain cities will not respond to calls for minor incidents during the coronavirus pandemic to minimize the cops’ contact with the public and prevent the spread of COVID-19 . Exceptions may be made if a crime is still in progress or if someone’s safety is at risk. Does this mean wide-scale crime sprees are on the horizon? Unless they involve petty thefts or breaking windows, probably not. “We’re not turtling up into shells and hiding,” Denver PD Chief Paul Pazen told The Denver Post . “Our ability to fight crime, our ability to prevent crime in the first place, that has not changed.” Over the weekend, police precincts in larger cities such as Denver and Aurora, Colorado; Portland, Oregon ; and Troy, Ohio announced they would not send officers to investigate low-level crimes, namely potential misdemeanors. In Cuyahoga County, Ohio , police will no longer jail anyone charged with misdemeanors. And if police do respond to a call, they’re required to wear personal protective...

What are the International Rights for Cannabis Patients?
(California, Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Italy, Law, Legalization, Medical Marijuana, Nebraska, Netherlands, Portugal, Production, Products, Recreational, South Dakota, Spain, Thailand, United States, Uruguay, THC, Cultivation) You can’t travel with your cannabis, but here’s what you can expect when you get there. As legalization spreads, so too does the realization that the medicinal properties of cannabis are hard to ignore. For any medicinal cannabis patients looking for a cannabis-friendly travel destination, (or new home) here are eight countries with the best rights for cannabis patients. Rights for Cannabis Patients in Spain The liberal attitudes towards cannabis in Spain go way back. As the closest entry point to Europe from the African continent, much of the world-renowned Moroccan hashish made its way through Spain into mainland Europe. Cannabis is currently decriminalized for cultivation and personal use across the country, but specific laws in relation to consumption vary by autonomous community. Cannabis is currently legal both, recreationally and medically, in Catalonia, but as of yet, other autonomous communities have not followed suit. In the meantime, cannabis consumption clubs and user...

Cannabis Helps Improve Quality of Life for Chronically Ill Patients, Study Says
(Brazil, Cannabis, Medical Marijuana, Research, Spain, Pharmaceuticals) By definition, living life with a chronic illness is full of constant pain, uncomfortability, and uncertainty. But for patients living with incurable ailments like HIV or epilepsy, there is one thing that can improve day-to-day life even more than some pharmaceuticals: cannabis. According to a new research paper published in the latest issue of Phytotherapy Research , scientists in Spain and Brazil tracked quality of life status of chronically ill patients in 4, 8, and 12 month increments. To see if marijuana had any affect on the lived experience of their ailments , researchers observed and recorded updates as 90 percent of the test group self-medicated with cannabis daily. Once the longitudinal time frame was complete, researchers compared patient reports during daily cannabis use to their status before picking up pot, and discovered a significant effect. "Mid-term use of medical cannabis seems to show adequate tolerability regarding cognitive and psychopathological abilities, and...

After 6 Months, 83% of Ayahuasca Users Report Improved Mental Health, Study Says
(Brazil, Exploring, Growing, Research, Spain, Pharmaceuticals) A new observational study found that the vast majority of ayahuasca users report significant reductions in depression and other mental health issues. The new study, published in the Scientific Reports journal , includes two different sub-studies exploring the short- and long-term effects of ayahuasca use. In the first sub-study, researchers from Spain and Brazil administered a psychiatric interview and a number of questionnaires to 40 subjects who never used ayahuasca before, but planned to do so. The interview and questionnaires were given to subjects before their first trip, and then repeated in two follow-up visits one and six months after the subjects' initial trip. The majority of these subjects were from Spain, where many small community groups have recently begun holding ayahuasca ceremonies. Just over half of these subjects were college graduates, and 84 percent were atheists. Over 59 percent of the subjects said they were trying ayahuasca for therapeutic reasons, while nearly...

Federal trademark registration in the United States provides strong protection for brands and intellectual property. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) will not grant such protection for marks that cover goods and/or services that are a violation of federal law, regardless of whether the activities associated with the goods or services is legal under state law. See 37 C.F.R. § 2.69. This principle has generally barred businesses in the cannabis industry from being able to register marks associated with their cannabis and cannabis-related goods and services. However, in May 2019, the USPTO issued new guidance on the examination of cannabis and cannabis-related trademarks following the...

The case concerns a specific fine – of 10,401 euros for repeated possession of cannabis in the street – placed on a resident of this Murcia town, but the lawyer who has taken the trial, Francisco Azorín, explains that it goes much further. “This sentence serves to revoke all sanctions for possession or consumption of drugs imposed in most municipalities in Spain,” he...

The Impact of Brexit on the Global Cannabis Industry
(Australia, Branding, Canada, Cannabis, CBD, Colorado, Development, Food, Germany, Greece, GW Pharmaceuticals plc, GWPH, Hemp, Poland, Portugal, Products, Regulations, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United States, THC, Pharmaceuticals) HMS Great Britain has now set forth from its European home port for another intriguing and very British escapade on the high seas. So far the jury is out. It could be the beginning of the next British Golden Age, Spanish Armada and all that. Or could it could end up (more likely) somewhere up the Khyber Pass (a sordid misadventure of British Imperialism that did not go well in the 19th century with global implications still reverberating to this day). For Netflix fans of The Crown, think “Suez Crisis” as a more recent and apt analogy. Starting with as much as a 6.7% reduction in domestic GDP already on the horizon. Snarky historical analogies and nostalgia aside, how will Brexit influence and shape a global cannabis industry, starting at home? The UK Is Not Actually in Regulatory Free Fall The first thing to realize is that most of the puffery around Brexit was that with the exception of labor conditions, there is little free choice in the world of trade anymore. The players who get...

Amsterdam Is Trying to Change Its Image By Restricting Pot Shops and Sex Work
(Advertising, Cannabis, Edibles, Marketing, Netherlands, New York, Spain, United States, Real Estate) Amsterdam is renowned for its red light district and its weed-friendly coffee shops, but local government officials are now looking to change the city's image . Back in 2004, Amsterdam created a marketing campaign encouraging tourists to come and indulge in pleasures that remain forbidden throughout the rest of Europe. Although cannabis is technically illegal in the Netherlands, Amsterdam authorities allow residents and tourists to enjoy spliffs or edibles in a number of “coffee shops” across the city. And in the city's red light district, sex workers can be seen advertising their legal services from windows all throughout the neighborhood. The marketing campaign was a huge success, and the number of tourists visiting the city has grown from eleven million in 2005 to eighteen million in 2018. But although the tourist industry continues to be highly lucrative for the city, many citizens are sick-to-death of tourists. Real estate prices are on the rise as homeowners shun long-term...

The Growing Influence of Certified Organic in the European Cannabis Industry
(Austria, Cannabis, CBD, Consumer Goods, Cosmetics, Food, Germany, Growing, Organic, Pesticide, Processing, Production, Products, Recreational, Regulations, Spain, United States, THC, Pharmaceuticals) There is a strange, if yet so far undetected, regulatory hum in the air right now in Europe that will begin to increasingly occupy those who are in the certified industry here or looking to get in. And no, it’s not imminent “recreational,” although it will also have vast impact on the same. A little understood regulatory structure (so far at least within the cannabis industry) called EU-BIO is now firmly in the room. What that is and how it will impact the industry is already starting to show up in a few places (see the new announcement by the Swiss that their recreational trial will be organic ). This is of course before any dates have even been decided upon for said trial (although others have been set up in the country for about a year). Beyond this, there are vast implications for every part of the industry, THC or CBD, medical or “lifestyle” focused. What is EU BIO? All food in the European Union is regulated on a “federal” level much like in the United States. The difference in...

Spain: U.S. Export Hotbed
(Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Growing, Hong Kong, Mexico, Products, Spain, United States, Power Systems, Pharmaceuticals, Security) It is surprising to those of us who have spent meaningful time in the country, but Spain is often overlooked as a business destination. Part of that has to do with the country’s ongoing problem with unemployment , which clouds outsider perceptions. Recent turmoil in Catalonia has not helped, with the optics at times making Barcelona seem like a Mediterranean Hong Kong. Yet Spain’s economy is the fourth-largest in the European Union and the 13th largest in the world . To put this in context, its economy is larger than Mexico’s. The country was one of the few bright spots in a generally lackluster Q4 in Europe. As for Catalonia, its economy is growing much faster than Spain’s as a whole. The U.S. is Spain’s most important partner outside Europe. In the first 11 months of 2019, the U.S. was Spain’s sixth-largest export and fifth-largest import partner . During that same period, exports to Spain from the United States grew at a faster clip than exports to any of the top 30 U.S. trade...

THC Not AfD: Germans Protest on the Front Lines of Change
(Cannabis, CBD, Consumer Goods, Distribution, France, Germany, Growing, Hemp, Italy, Law, Legalization, Media, Spain, THC) Braving the chill and rain, over 200 German activists gathered in the German dorf (small town or village) of Lahr on the first Saturday of Febuary, protesting for more comprehensive laws for the controlled distribution and legalization of cannabis. As the local media was quick to point out, this was the first demonstration of its kind in the town. It was a strategically planned demonstration at a time when the rules are changing, and challenges from law enforcement and regulatory agencies, are growing in Germany. Just in other words, as police are challenging hemp sellers from Spain and Italy to France last year, the battle has come to pot shops and patients alike over the last four years. The UK is in its just post-Brexit heyday, but the free for all so far on CBD is not likely to proceed without further police involvement. The rules are just not stable enough yet. On the ground in Germany in early February, no matter how small or inconsequential it might have looked to outsiders, in...

What To Consider Before Entering the European CBD Market
(Austria, Belgium, Cannabis, CBD, Distribution, Food, Foods, Hemp, Italy, Manufacturing, Marketing, Netherlands, Products, Regulations, Research, Spain, Switzerland, Testing, The ArcView Group, United Kingdom, United States, Industrial Hemp, THC) This past year, the cannabidiol (“CBD”) craze has taken the world by surprise, showing remarkable prospect for economic growth. According to BDS Analytics and Arcview Market Research , the CBD market is expected to surpass $20 billion by 2024 in the United States alone. Europe has also witnessed a huge demand for the most coveted cannabinoid, whose market, Brightfiled Group predicts, will grow by 400% by 2023. Unlike the U.S. CBD market, the European CBD market is just beginning to take hold with both product availability and consumer awareness being quite limited. Consequently, Europe offers great opportunity for U.S. CBD brands to enter and expand their existing business in a less competitive atmosphere. Nevertheless, entering the European market is not as easy as it may seem. European markets are complex, particularly when it comes to hemp-derived CBD (“Hemp CBD”). Indeed, the Old Continent is composed of 44 countries, 28 of which are member states, that have adopted 24 different...
