Switzerland’s Flourishing Cannabis Pilots Gain European Spotlight: A Model for Others?


AUGUST 15, 2023

Switzerland and its rapidly proliferating adult-use cannabis pilot framework is fast becoming the centre of attention for many European cannabis stakeholders and policy makers.

As other countries struggle to see their ambitions for cannabis reform become a reality, with international legal obligations bringing them back down to earth, Switzerland has been quietly pushing ahead with its roll out.

With Germany’s ‘Pillar 2’ expected to be largely modelled around the Swiss framework, an increasing number of German businesses are looking to Switzerland for insight on how they can hit the ground running once it’s launched.

Last month, Europe’s first THC adult-use cannabis trial, Weed Care, successfully entered its second phase, seeing the number of participants more than double, but this represents just the tip of the iceberg of pilot studies set to launch imminently.
