Import allowed, but sales restricted: Belgium regulatory snapshot

Belgian regional authorities may authorise farmers who want to grow hemp crops with a THC concentration of 0.2% or lower.

It’s believed CBD can be extracted and transformed for certain commercial purposes in Belgium, though with restrictions.

Belgian authorities interpret the 0.2% THC trace tolerated in hemp grown for industrial purposes also applies to its derivatives, except for hemp edibles (hemp seeds, hemp oil for example), which should have lower traces.

Products based on CBD may be defined as medicine.

CBD and CBD extracts are considered novel foods and are not allowed on the market.

Hemp flowers may not be sold as a food product.

CBD in vapour products is currently unregulated, however the authority considers the presence of CBD in a nicotine-containing vapour product illegal.
