Estonia to increase to 0.3% THC in hemp
August 29, 2022 A regulatory amendment is now being drawn up by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs to allow hemp with higher THC limits to be cultivated in the country
The Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs is currently preparing a regulatory amendment that will allow hemp varieties with a higher tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content to be grown in Estonia.
Currently, Estonian farmers are only allowed to grow hemp varieties with a THC content of less than 0.2%. By the beginning of next year at the latest, this limit will increase to almost 0.3%.
Ago Siiner, CEO of Perfect Plant, a long-time importer of hemp seeds, noted that under local conditions, only two varieties of hemp currently allowed are worth growing in Estonia.
