2). Legal Status:
a). Cannabidiol (CBD) is not a narcotic neither a psychotropic agent but it is an approved, antiepileptic drug under prescription; which means specific licenses and serious limitations, concerning purchasing, supplying, handling, preparation and formulation, everywhere. In other words, purchasing, supplying, handling, preparation and formulation of cannabidiol by unauthorized individuals and institutions, is not legal at all.
b). Similar as above concern purchasing, supplying, growing, handling, preparation and formulation of industrial hemp, as well as its use as a raw material.
PS: “Cannabis products containing less than 1% THC can be sold and purchased legally in Switzerland” does not obligatory mean that “Cannabis products containing a significant amount of CBD but less than 1% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) can also be sold and purchased legally in Switzerland” and elsewhere.
