LexCast: CBD – Novel Food or Narcotic?


Your contact

The European Commission recently announced that all CBD Novel Food applications are put on hold while it reviews whether CBD should not be classified as a food, but instead as a narcotic under the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotics of 1961. This re-classification could potentially have wide-ranging and detrimental consequences on a fast-growing industry in Europe.

Listen to our LexCast and our conversation with Kai-Friedrich Niermann, one of the leading authorities on all regulatory questions relating to cannabis, and in particular CBD, in Germany, about the confusions surrounding the potential re-classification of CBD in Europe. Also, you can look forward to a short announcement at the end of the episode.
