Hemp Extracts Have Been With Us for Centuries, EIHA’s New Report Shows

The European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA) has published a collection of historical evidence documenting the consumption of hemp food and hemp food extracts in Europe prior to the year 1997. By proving that hemp extracts containing similar levels of naturally occurring cannabinoids as our era’s hemp oils have been consumed in Europe for centuries, EIHA effectively challenged the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) stance, according to which, CBD products should be considered Novel Food.

This is great news for the European hemp industry, as the report can serve as a counter-argument for the countries hesitant to follow EFSA’s unbinding opinion.
