Legal review of the sale of dried hemp in cigarettes

The law regarding the sale of dried hemp in cigarette products varies by country and jurisdiction. Below I provide a general outline of the applicable law in some countries, but I always recommend consulting with local laws and a lawyer for accurate information on this topic.

Poland: In Poland, the sale of dried hemp in cigarette products is regulated by several laws and regulations. Here are some key points:

  1. Excise taxation: Dried hemp is subject to excise tax, regardless of whether it is intended for smoking or vaporization. Products containing dried hemp that meet certain criteria are treated as cigarettes or smoking tobacco.
  2. Banding requirements: Products subject to excise duty must be marked with excise stamps, the so-called bands. Failure to provide valid excise stamps may result in sanctions under the law.
  3. Health Warnings: Products containing dried hemp are subject to regulations regarding health protection against the consequences of using tobacco and tobacco products. Packaging must include health warnings related to smoking.
  4. THC content: Only hemp (fibrous) is legal and its delta-9-THC-2-carboxylic acid content does not exceed 0.20% on a dry weight basis.
  5. Compliance with Regulations: Producers and sellers of dried hemp are advised to strictly comply with sales and taxation regulations. Violation of the regulations may result in legal and tax consequences.

Other Countries: Other countries have different regulations regarding dried hemp and cigarette products. In some countries, dried hemp can only be legally sold for medical or recreational purposes. Before operating in a given jurisdiction, it is always a good idea to check applicable laws, obtain appropriate permits and licenses, and consult with your local attorney or regulatory authority.

Remember that the law regarding dried hemp may be changing and subject to updates, so it is important to monitor the regulations in a given jurisdiction on an ongoing basis.
