LexCast: CBD – Novel Food or Narcotic? with Daniel Haymann and KFN+

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.
