Is CBD Legal in Andorra?
Andorra Not Embracing CBD Like Many Other European CountriesSitting landlocked between France and Spain, Andorra is a tiny country surrounded by the Pyrenees mountains and often secluded by the politics and culture of neighboring countries. Andorra does share it’s government with France and depends on military protection from neighboring Spain and France, but the country tends to practice older traditions and keep to itself, as its politics are also intertwined with the Catholic Church.
Andorra and CBDMost of the countries in the European Union (EU) have recognized some of the reported health benefits of CBD. They are looking into further research and have for the most part legalized CBD for personal use. The legislation varies slightly depending on the country, but there is a consensus in the EU that CBD is safe and should be legal. While Andorra is landlocked between France and Spain, it has never joined the EU. Andorra remains isolated from the politics and regulations of the EU, and it has yet to look into the legalization of CBD for personal use or health benefits.
CBD In the EUThere does seem to be confusion in the minds of many on the difference between cannabidiol, or CBD, and THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. Here are some of the differences:
- Cannabis is a type of plant that consists of two major types; marijuana and hemp.
- THC is psychoactive and what produces the “high” when consuming marijuana.
- Though cannabidiol can be found in marijuana and hemp, most CBD is derived from industrial hemp plants.
- Industrial hemp is grown for use in industry, food, and textiles as well as CBD production.
- Hemp contains very little THC, therefore hemp-derived CBD has non-detectable levels of THC.
