Cannabis products on the Dutch market

We advise clients on the legality of (the procession of) products containing substances (THC of CBD) of cannabis.

Businesses selling or importing products containing substances (THC of CBD) of cannabis should be aware of the Dutch narcotics law, the Opium Act (Opiumwet) and derived/implementing legislation, and the European Novel Food Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2015/2283), as implemented in the Dutch Novel Food and Genetically Modified Foods (Commodities Act) Decree (Warenwetbesluit nieuwe voedingsmiddelen en genetisch gemodificeerde levensmiddelen). Note that the novel food regulation is only applicable to food stuffs. Several CBD products are already on sale throughout the Netherlands.
