The situation in Luxembourg
Since Friday, in Luxembourg, it’s now legal to smoke cannabis privately and grow up to four plants at home for adults. The new law, passed at the end of June, was published in the Journal Officiel and came into force four days later. Despite this step forward, the law remains vague about the purchase and import of seeds. A priori, they will not be sold in Luxembourg, and the question of their acquisition remains uncertain.

Cannabidiol (CBD) and its legislation around the world
CBD is a hemp-derived molecule renowned for its therapeutic properties and relaxing effects. It has no psychotropic or addictive effects, unlike THC, another active cannabinoid found in cannabis.
Study of cannabidiol laws in different countries
Legislation on CBD varies by country, with some nations allowing its use for medical purposes while others impose strict restrictions. Here’s an overview of regulations in different countries :
- United States: The legality of CBD depends on where it comes from. If it comes from industrial hemp (containing less than 0.3% THC), it’s legal at federal level. However, laws vary from state to state, with some allowing CBD for medical purposes only.
- Canada: CBD is legal and regulated as a natural health product, under certain conditions. It must be approved by Health Canada and comply with packaging and labeling requirements.
- United Kingdom: CBD is legal as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC and is extracted from legally grown industrial hemp plants. The sale of CBD products is subject to strict advertising and labeling rules.
- France: CBD is legal if it comes from industrial hemp plants containing less than 0.2% THC. CBD products cannot be sold as medicines, and their use is limited to cosmetics and food products.
In conclusion, legislation on the sale of cannabis seeds and CBD products varies considerably from country to country. It is therefore crucial for companies and consumers to stay informed about local and international regulations to avoid any violations of the laws in force.
