Hemp Industry Daily reports….
Despite being overshadowed by the output of France’s hemp farmers and the heft of Germany’s consumer buying power, Poland stands out as a key player among Europe’s hemp markets.
Polish farmers nearly doubled the area they cultivated for hemp last year, and the country has developed a reputation as a European hub for CBD processing due to the growth of small extraction operations.
But entrepreneurs across the entire hemp supply chain are balancing booming market demand for hemp products against nagging legal uncertainty.
Polish law remains ambiguous on the THC threshold for hemp after harvest and for final products, leaving farmers, processors and retailers the mercy of local police trying to enforce narcotics law.
The high-risk regulatory environment aside, hemp cultivation for CBD remains a mainstay for the Polish market.
