CBD in Colombia

Colombia’s CBD market is showing great potential and development is increasing. This page includes all of our detailed full-length Colombian market and regulatory reports, as well as both business and regulatory briefings covering current updates from the country.

Proposals continue in the hope of properly regulating Colombia’s hemp industry

The law in Colombia distinguishes between non-psychoactive and psychoactive cannabis, depending on whether the THC content is less or more than 1% by dry weight. Cultivation of cannabis and manufacture of cannabis-derived products is permitted in Colombia under a licence.

CBD is not a scheduled substance in Colombia, suggesting potential for the market to grow. There are a number of bills being proposed in the Senate to further regulate the industry, however, the regulatory structure remains complex, and companies may need to think hard to exploit it to the full while remaining within the law.
