Professor Trevor Jones, CBE, FMedSci, chair of the EUMCA, the Brussels-based industry body which advocates for European evidence-based policy to improve patient access to high-quality cannabis treatment, issues a warning to regulators and policy makers across the EU of the serious risk to patient safety if the current EU limit of 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabidiol (CBD) products for sale is increased to 0.3%.

In our April edition of OAG, we interviewed Professor Jones about the genuine possibilities of high-quality cannabis treatment. You can read his full range of predictions right here. 

Professor Jones warns that raising the limit to 0.3% should only be permitted if there is evidence from adequately powered clinical studies, using products with well-defined content, that this higher limit is acceptably safe in populations of different ages.
