Geelong-based hemp foods company Australian Primary Hemp has been working with Border retailers and farmers on the emerging industry.

Albury businesses Olive Health Foods and Border Just Foods are among Border businesses who stock their hemp products.

Both of them sell Australian Primary Hemp Protein and Oil.

Olive Health Foods owner David Redcliffe said his customers had embraced the hemp products.

“Since the legislation, we have seen an increase in the number of customers coming in to purchase hemp food products,” he said.

Extract: 

Between six and 10 Dutch municipalities will experiment with regulated cannabis cultivation and sale, according to a bill sent to the police, the Public Prosecutor and the Association of Dutch municipalities, among others, the Volkskrant reports.

The experiment will last for five years and two months, one year of which will be used on preparation. Cannabis cultivators will be recruited through a tender. For the period of the experiment, they will only be allowed to grow weed for the experiment, and not for other sales.

Not all coffeeshops in the participating municipalities will take part in the experiment. As long as the experiment lasts, these coffeeshops will only be allowed to sell weed under the conditions set in the experiment. After it is over, the coffeeshops can sell as they did before the experiment, while it is carefully evaluated. Only after this evaluation will a decision be made on whether to introduce regulated cannabis cultivation and sale nationwide.
