CBD is becoming a new billion-dollar market worldwide. In the nova session you will learn everything about CBD: how it has a pharmacological effect, how it is produced, what applications it has and, above all, what the legal regulations look like in which countries. While new markets are already emerging in North America and Israel, Europe is still struggling to regulate CBD so that safe and legal products find their customers.
Leading experts from Great Britain, Spain and Germany, all members of the European Industrial Hemp Association will bring you up to date and discuss with you extensively. Join in, learn, discuss and share.
