This report provides an invaluable overview of the complex regulatory framework relating to CBD in Thailand. The regulations within this country are restrictive, made worse by the absence of a fully established licensing regime. Although this is the case, it appears that Thailand is looking to relax its law and allow cannabis and hemp for certain purposes, which could be interpreted as a turning point for the country.

This report has been written in collaboration with Tilleke & Gibbins, a trusted adviser to both local and international clients seeking to do business in Thailand’s burgeoning medical cannabis and CBD sectors.
