Grow Hemp legally in Italy
The cultivation of industrial hemp in Italy is regulated by the Law n. 242 of 2 December 2016, which allows the cultivation for industrial purposes of varieties of Cannabis Sativa L with a THC content below 0.6% and only genetics included in a specific list by the European community. This list is updated every year with the addition of new varieties or the exclusion of others. Genetics that breach the THC limits for two consecutive years are usually excluded from this catalog, as is the case with the chosen Campana and some other genetics. The controls are entrusted to the bodies in place in each country, in Italy the research and evaluation of new varieties of industrial hemp and entrusted to CREA which represents excellence in Europe and perhaps in the world as regards research and development in the agricultural field.
