Of the deputies of the majority at the bedside of the industry of hemp

Sixteen parliamentarians from the majority on the frontline to defend the virtues of the products of the cultivation of hemp for the well-being of the French. Led by Jean-Baptiste Moreau, a member of the Digs, they are claiming in a letter the establishment of a mission information on the cannabis well-being". In the clear, they are targeting the food supplements, liquids for electronic cigarettes, cosmetics, or even dried flowers dedicated to the vaporization and the infusion, composed of a non-psychoactive hemp. These products can act on the stress, anxiety, sleep or recovery. They do not contain cannabis, recreational or therapeutic, banned in France.

"today, tens of thousands of French consumers are already using on a daily basis these products by purchasing them on the Internet, often imported from our european neighbours," says Jean-Baptiste Moreau. Legal uncertainty surrounds their consumption and selling them in our country." France prohibited, in effect, the products derived from the flower of hemp (from which is extracted cannabidiol) and restricted the use of hemp for the sole trade of fibre and seeds, which are used in the textile industry, the building or the power supply. However, the potential of this market could reach a billion euros in france. The defenders of the text believe that the farmers would be the main beneficiaries, with France being the first european producer of hemp. Dozens of start-ups and SMES that are already active in this area, including Ho-Karan, distributed at Sephora, could benefit from it.
