In Japan, CBD products and related products are also increasing in popularity, however, the source of CBD, cannabis, and the usage of this plant is strictly regulated by antiquated legislation. There is a huge opportunity for businesses in Japan to begin selling CBD products and finding the right manufacturer is essential to export your CBD products.
Recently, some, even those in Japan, have come to understand how cannabis can benefit our day to day lives, with new CBD businesses now starting to appear in Japan to take advantage of this new opportunity.
For anyone wanting to start a CBD business in Japan, there are a number of laws and regulations that must be adhered to. There are two laws related to cannabis and psychotropics; the Cannabis Control Act and the Narcotics and Psychotropics Control Act.
Cannabis Control Act
The Cannabis Control Act has been in force in Japan since 7 July, 1948.
Narcotics and Psychotropics Control Act
In this act, the handlers, the license, export and import regulations, manufacturing, distribution, storage, and disposal rules are all defined and regulated.
Why Is It Important to Differentiate Hemp from Marijuana?
In most of the countries, marijuana is considered any Cannabis sativa with more than 0.3% THC (0.2% in Europe). Any plants that contain 0.3% THC or less is considered hemp instead.
However, Japan’s Cannabis Control Act focuses on the plant’s parts, regardless of the THC content. The act prohibits the use of cannabis leaves and flowers but excludes the seeds and the stem. This is because even marijuana plants don’t produce psychoactive concentrations of THC in the stems.
In summary, CBD products are legal in Japan as long as they’re made from cannabis stems or seeds, and don’t contain any measurable levels of THC.
