CBD ready to make a name for itself
CBD, which is a cannabinoid compound found in the hemp plant, is now widely regarded as having no psychotropic properties. By announcing that it has begun to examine the possibility of removing cannabidiol from this list, the Ministry is leaving the door open to the possibility of authorising the marketing of products based on this compound in the country. In order to make its decision, the committee will be responsible for studying the legislation, policies and regulations on the subject at international level. It will also monitor the quality, quantity and concentration of the substance in the products in question. Finally, the committee will study the potential benefits of products with CBD in their composition and will have to supervise the processes and tests concerning them.
After the Israeli Parliament's green light for an expansion of the medical cannabis programme...
The Knesset - which is the Israeli Parliament and the main legislative power of the State of Israel - has already agreed to form a committee on cannabis, after Sharren Haskel, the member of the New Hope party, lobbied hard for it. She tweeted that she "welcomes the creation of this committee and promises to do everything possible to bring good news to medical cannabis patients. In addition, the committee will have to discuss the legalization of medical marijuana. Currently, recreational cannabis use is considered illegal in Israel, but the Ministry of Public Security eased its penalties in 2017, while continuing to ease restrictions over time.
