We do not agree with the proposal of the EU Commission - a ban on the use of natural extract from te

As part of the approval of the CBD as a "Novel food", the European Commission has decided to stop applications and is considering labeling natural hemp extract as a drug. It wants to ban freely available CBD as we know it and completely replace it with synthetic - chemically created. Let us express our disagreement.

We do not agree with the European Commission's proposal on technical hemp extracts. According to the preliminary opinion, natural extracts from industrial hemp are to be considered as a drug / narcotic psychotropic substance (so-called "OPL") and therefore it will not be possible to use them freely, even though they contain only authorized cannabinoids including CBD and do not contain the unauthorized THC.

This is a purely political preliminary opinion of the European Commission, these products in the form of extracts and macerates and other extracts have already been used by our grandmothers and are currently used by natural hemp extracts in the form of food supplements by consumers of all ages to regenerate and prevent various problems and often avoids the need for commercially available medicine. The safety of the substances contained and their beneficial effect on the organism is proven by a number of studies, including the reference daily intake dose set by the European Food Safety Association and confirmed by the Czech State Institute of Public Health.

We express our disagreement. We are preparing a public letter and now a petition. Let's express our disagreement by signing the petition:

PETITION TO SIGN HERE

Here are some points to the petition:

  1. Clinical studies processed for novel food purposes. so-called Novel food (although technical hemp was treated as early as 1961, therefore logically Novel Food cannot be applied after 1997), including the European Food Safety Authority EFSA, confirms that these substances are safe. At the level of the Czech Republic, the amount / content of CBD in food is determined by the State Health Institute of the SZÚ in order to be a safe (non-harmful) food.
  1. Restrictions in the form of labeling as drugs only apply to natural extracts, chemically / synthetically produced substances with the same effect and chemical composition are not covered by the opinion on OPL (Narcotic Psychoactive Substances)!
  1. If the decision enters into force, it means - the promotion of synthetic products at the expense of natural extracts will deprive farmers and food business operators of a market opportunity that is able to generate significant income in these times of crisis.
  1. If hemp extracts become a drug, hemp and hemp products will not be a matter for farmers and food business operators, but only for chemical (multinational) corporations that can afford the synthetic production of these substances.
  1. In the rest of the world, specifically in the USA, Canada, Great Britain and China, they are going in exactly the opposite, liberalizing direction.
  1. The WHO is even considering softening the rules for hemp and THC, and in some countries full market liberalization is an open issue.

This is discrimination - restrictions on consumer choice - the right to competition (within DG Competition) is one of the strongest within the principles of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, where such restrictions on natural products over synthetic ones.

They deprive farmers and food business operators of a market opportunity, but in particular restrict competition and thus free consumer choice in the form of natural products / extracts freely available on the market as food supplements.

With this petition, we do not agree with the designation of extracts from industrial hemp (so-called cannabinoids incl. CBD) as drugs / narcotics and psychotropic substances. Conversely, natural hemp products should be available in the form of over-the-counter food supplements on the EU market, with food safety and consumer protection already being sufficiently ensured at the level of national authorities and regularly monitored.
