The Regulatory CBD Report: No distinction between Cannabis and Hemp in Japan, has been recently added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. According to the report, the Cannabis Control Act in Japan does not make any distinction between cannabis and hemp, nor does it refer to any permitted level of THC content for hemp cultivation.
While there is a licensing regime in place, it appears to be unclear and as such has apparently had a fairly negative impact on cultivators and a once booming industry. This report provides an overview of the current framework, covering all areas from cultivation and processing to import and export, a tricky subject in the country.
Japan's CBD and hemp market report not only attempt to navigate through some of the more problematic areas of the law, such as import and export, but it also provides a detailed analysis of extracts, finished products including food, cosmetics, and vaping, and both medical and recreational cannabis laws.
