Is industrial marijuana legal
Because of its hallucinogenic ingredients, cannabis plants are strictly controlled internationally and fall within the control scope of the United Nations Single Convention on narcotic drugs of 1961 as amended by the 1972 Protocol (hereinafter referred to as "the 1961 Convention"). There are also strict provisions in the drug control law of the people's Republic of China, the regulations on the administration of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances and other relevant laws and regulations. There are strict requirements and standards for the cultivation and processing of industrial cannabis.
Hemp for industrial use is only for the purpose of obtaining fiber and seeds, and the variety with tetrahydrocannabinol content less than 0.3% by mass and approved for legal cultivation shall be selected; Cannabis plants for other purposes are under control, and their cultivation and production must be approved by the competent authorities. Due to the increasing attention to the cannabis industry, in march2019, the China drug control network of the National Drug Control Commission released a special report entitled "strict regulatory requirements for the application of industrial cannabis".
Although cannabinoid itself is not a controlled drug, the tender leaves and flower buds with high cannabinoid content are generally used in the extraction of cannabinoid. According to articles 2 and 4 of the provisions of Yunnan Province on the license for the cultivation and processing of industrial cannabis, the flower and leaf processing of industrial cannabis shall be subject to the license system according to law, and the products with the content of tetrahydrocannabinol extracted from the processing of industrial fried dough twist higher than 0.3% by mass shall be subject to the laws and regulations on drug control.
Therefore, even if the varieties of industrial cannabis are planted, when they are used to extract cannabis diphenol, they still need to apply according to the regulatory requirements and can be produced only after obtaining approval. According to articles 12 and 13 of the provisions of Yunnan Province on the license for industrial cannabis cultivation and processing, those who apply for the processing of industrial large fried dough twist leaf shall submit the source of raw materials, use of raw materials, product types and product processing plans, and shall also have special testing equipment, storage, processing and other facilities and places, as well as testing, storage, standing book and other management systems.
