SWITZERLAND’s ‘Weed Care’ pilot, set to be Europe’s first ever THC adult-use cannabis trial, is now due to begin on January 30, 2023 following a four-month delay.
The landmark study, expected to ‘open the door’ for more adult-use cannabis trials to take place across Switzerland and Europe, is now back on track after a second batch of cannabis was approved for use.
Pure Production AG has confirmed that it has received renewed approval from Swiss health authorities to supply the trial, after its first 30kg batch ‘narrowly’ failed to meet quality standards.
Those involved are hopeful this delay will provide ‘the first learnings’ for the project and make it easier for the numerous other major studies expected to be granted ‘within the next weeks’.
