According to an article in Belgium online newspaper HLN,
Kannaway Products are banned in Belgium as Cannabis Oil is illegal.
“Whoever sells the products on the basis of cannabis oil, risks a hefty fine or even cell punishment”.
From the article:
Both the FAMHP (the agency that oversees the sale of medicines) and the FASFC (the food safety agency) confirm that it is forbidden to sell cannabis oil.
However, the representatives of Kannaway use the confusion surrounding the term ‘cannabis oil’ to promote their business.
You can get oil from the cannabis plant in two ways. You can either focus on the active ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) or on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The last one is what makes cannabis a drug. “CBD is, however, an innocent substance”, it says on the Belgian website of Kannaway.
It is true that CBD does not have the same effect as THC, but that does not make it less illegal according to Belgian law.
“In addition, Kannaway makes therapeutic claims on its website,” says Ann Eeckhout of the FAMHP.
“A producer who does that must register his product as a medicine.” Even as a food supplement, it violates the rules. ”
The products based on CBD oil that Kannaway offers are so-called ‘novel foods’”, explains Katrien Stragier of the FASFC.
“And they must obtain a permit at the European level, otherwise they are forbidden.”
Kannaway has not yet obtained this permit.
Whoever sells the products on the basis of cannabis oil, in other words, risks a hefty fine or even a cell punishment.
