Denatured hemp oils: traders under pressure

Posted on

Hemp oils with CBD are an important mainstay for Herba di Berna AG as well as for many other CBD companies. In April of this year, this market was put before the end of the line in a seemingly arbitrary order from the federal government: since CBD oils have not yet been approved as food, they will have to be denatured starting in October. Additives must therefore be mixed in to make the oil inedible.

How the hemp industry deals with this latest attack from the authorities was described in a detailed article in the Landbote. As a member of the board and responsible for SMEs at IG Hemp, our CEO Philippe Wietlisbach explains which short-term solutions will allow the industry to continue and how the sale of hemp oils could be facilitated in the medium term.
