Germany: The German Hemp Market - Hemp Makes a Comeback in Germany

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In 1996, after a 14-year ban, Germany legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp with a Delta-9- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content not exceeding 0.2 percent. While the demand for hemp products has been on the rise, hemp is still considered a niche product. Licensed German companies are now able to cultivate medicinal cannabis, though the cultivation, distribution, and consumption of marijuana for recreational purposes remains prohibited in Germany. This report provides an overview of the German hemp market, its opportunities, and the current legal status.
