NZHIA Government Committee – An update from the Chairperson, Chris Woodney.

It seems we have turned the corner with the MOH, finishing our first meeting of 2019 on a positive note.

A lot of work has been put in by the government committee over the past 12 months to get us to this point and it seems with the change of government and DG the working relationship is getting better.

We have had some wins though, which is good. Now only responsible persons will be needing police checks, not all those over 17.

MOH online applications are soon to be operational for new applicants, renewals and amendments.
Significant changes have been taken on board for the new application forms reducing the double up of information.

The major focus for us though has been getting the MOH to understand that without all revenue streams the industry will struggle to compete both locally and internationally.

Industry want to sell biomass to licensed producers.  Without this valuable revenue stream, grain prices will remain high, and the industry will be unable to compete with imported products,  and also be too pricey for the international market.

We reached out to the newly formed Medical Cannabis Council at their workshop to gain support for industry supplying them with biomass.  The answer was a unanimous YES.

The workshop was to gather feedback on what these companies wanted to see in the Regulations which is to be provided by the Ministry of Health, this year.

I attended on behalf of Industry to ensure we try to untangle iHemp and its products from any association with medicine or pharmaceuticals/drugs.

The topics discussed ranged from micro grow licences right through to GMP production.

There was a unanimous agreement that those with cannabis convictions should be allowed to enter the industry under the supervision of a responsible person as with the hemp industry. Dishonesty and violence convictions were not accepted to be appropriate convictions.

Discussions moved to kiwi genetics and what the amnesty would look like, some thought it should be ongoing and I agree.  This would give the black market time to build up some trust and see some returns for others in a regulated market place.

The social media response from a few in the cannabis community was that it was a bunch of money hungry opportunists looking to make their own rules and exclude others. I guess that’s how the Hemp industry pioneers were once viewed.

I can tell you from my attendance that this was a very patient-focused working group looking to minimise the supply chain and maximise it’s ability to get affordable products to patients, (that is, the less hands the product has to go through the cheaper it is for the end user).

The truth is that no matter how much money you have, it is those that have done the research applied the science and perfected their products that will be the stayers in this medical game.

Critical mass is almost at tipping point keep spreading the word about hemp as it’s our kids that will do amazing things with it not us!

Food Survey – closes 13 March 2019


FSANZ SURVEY: Low-THC hemp seeds as food

Fill in the anominious, Food Safety Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) survey.
And don’t forget to supply comments on the future of hemp foods in New Zealand, not just hemp seed foods.FSANZ wrote on the 14 February 2019

Hulled hemp seeds from low-THC plants and food derived from hemp seeds are now available for sale and consumption in Australia and New Zealand.

To support the objectives of a consistent bi-national food regulatory system, the Australian and New Zealand governments are now gathering and consolidating information on existing activities and controls throughout the supply chain.

In order to do this, a survey has been developed for all Australian and New Zealand businesses involved in the growing, processing, manufacturing and importing of low-THC hemp for food for human consumption.

Your input is highly valued and we appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey. Please feel free to share this link with other businesses who are involved in the above activities relating to low-THC hemp for food if you believe they may not have received it. Please note that all information collected will remain strictly confidential.

You can access the survey by clicking here

The survey will run from 13 February until midnight on 13 March 2019. If you have any questions regarding the survey, you can email food.contact@dpi.nsw.gov.au.

Hemp Research Survey – closes 25th March 2019

AgResearch is hosting a workshop with Australian CSIRO researchers interested in the hemp research area with the aim of establishing areas of joint research in this field.

To provide some direction for the discussions AgResearch are conducting a short survey of growers and would-be growers. And the same survey has been sent to the Australian state regulators.

Please complete the survey. It’s quite short but will provide some direction to our R&D planning. The an overall analysis of the results will be shared with the NZHIA ‘after March 25th.

Please encourage other interested parties to complete the survey by March 25th 2019.

Medicinal Cannabis Amendment Bill – 17 December 2018

The progress of “The Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill”, including history, reports and speeches and the debate can be found on the parliamentary website

The Government plans to set up a medicinal cannabis scheme within a year.  This will allow medicinal cannabis to be prescribed and supplied to a subset of potential patients who are eligible to receive palliative care.

An advisory panel, which should involve industry and overseas experts will set up the medicinal cannabis scheme within 12 months.  As part of this process a consultation document needs to be released by February or March for stakeholder comment.  This will give everyone the opportunity to comment.

MOH are listening to industry; the NZHIA and the Medicinal Cannabis Council are working with officials to ensure high and low THC forms of cannabis are included in the scheme and that it is workable for the entire supply chain.

Low THC Industrial hemp, is cannabis and has a high amount of various cannabinoids, terpennes, and flavoinoids, and very little of the psychoactive THC cannabinoid.

It is a great source of safe medicinal compounds which can be used as a whole plant extract where the synergistic reactions of the constituents of the whole plant work well together in what is refereed to as the entourage effect.

Or as a source for the extraction industry to supply individual isolates, such as the cannabinoid, CBD to the medicinal and commercial markets.

New Zealand Hemp Industry Association.  Press Release.  27-11-18 

START

Industrial hemp now illegal as animal feed.

Hemp growers are up in arms as a document released by MPI yesterday informed them feeding of iHemp to any animal is in breach of the Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines Act. (ACVM).

This has come as a huge shock to all in the industry, who, until this week believed they had access to the animal feed market, since the iHemp regulations came into place in 2006. This latest release by MPI sends a contradictory message from the department after changing regulations earlier this month to allow hemp seed for human consumption.

“So we have got a win for human food but lost animal feed?” questions one Rangitikei iHemp farmer “how ridiculous!”.

MPI Head of Food Safety Bryan Wilson has stated recently that “Hemp seeds are safe to eat and nutritious, they don’t produce a psychoactive or therapeutic effect”. Yet it appears that it is no longer acceptable for animals!

The ACVM legislation was changed in 2011 without any industry consultation. This is where the issue lies.

MPI has released several documents previously, including in 2004, indicating iHemp was permissible to feed to animals, in fact, they encouraged it. Former Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) staffer and Deputy Chair of the hemp licensing committee (2001-2005) Tony van der Lem points out: “Proceeding with a change that will affect an industry without our consultation, is not what is expected of a professional and competent government department”.

MPI is now claiming that harm may arise to New Zealand’s export earnings, citing potential issues from countries where hemp is prohibited. “The tiniest trace amount of any cannabinoid in our milk or meat could be devastating”, they argue.

IHemp however is considered generally safe by the World Health Organisation and the UN. The current iHemp regulations specify limits on Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, a psychoactive substance) as being under 0.35%. No substance present in hemp is thought or proven to be of any detriment to the health of people or animals.

Considerable interest has arisen recently in medicinal cannabis, and this is being blamed for some of the confusion and mixed messages coming from Government. “They need to take a step back and realise we are a low THC arable crop with huge potential, and start enabling the industry”, says Deputy Chair of the NZHIA, Richard Barge.

Industry is calling for a change in legislation to exempt iHemp from the rigorous controls currently in place on controlled drugs.  Hemp products are safe, and one molecule of THC or CBD should not force officials to treat us like a drug crop.

Low THC iHemp is clearly defined as not being Marijuana. It is time for the conflicting announcements made by governmental departments about iHemp, to stop. Officials need urgently to work together and with industry, to enable a brand new primary industry for New Zealand.

NZHIA farmer member Tom Welch states: “These constant roadblocks by government are killing our industry’s future! We need government to help, not hinder, for hemp to flourish to its economic and ecological potential”, he continues, “this low THC plant presents absolutely no health risks to people or animals and it is to the detriment of all New Zealanders that hemp continues to be so strictly prohibited”.

NZHIA is awaiting reply from the Prime Minister’s office on the issues at hand.

NZHIA Press Release 8 Nov 2018

Please follow the following link for the Food Press Release

Press release 8 November 2018

NZ Hemp Industries Association Inc.
View this email in your browser

New Zealand Hemp Industries Association (NZHIA)  PRESS RELEASE
(8 November 2018) start:

Hemp seed food products now legal in New Zealand

A small yet significant victory occurred on Tuesday as Government announced formal regulatory changes, which will mean that hemp seed products will be legal for sale and consumption as from 12 November 2018.

This change in legislation means that in addition to hemp seed oil (which has been legal since 2003) items such as de-hulled hemp seed, hemp seed protein powder, hemp seed beverages and hemp seed snack bars will now all be able to be legally sold for human consumption in New Zealand.

This change in hemp seed food legislation follows on from changes that Trans – Tasman Food Ministers agreed to be made to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code on 28 April 2017. Australia has been legally selling their hemp food items since November last year.

Announcing the legislation change, Food Safety Minister Damien O’Connor acknowledged that the NZ industrial hemp (iHemp) industry has been campaigning for this amendment to happen for decades. He also made reference to the potential for the iHemp industry to be significantly beneficial to New Zealand’s rural economies and communities in terms of generating revenue and jobs.

Despite this good news however, hemp flowers and hemp leaves, even those strains with effectively zero levels of the psycho active component THC, will remain illegal in New Zealand food: This continued restriction is frustrating for those who want the high value nutrition of the whole plant to be made available to New Zealanders for dietary and medical benefits.

Additionally, the possession and trade of whole hemp seeds will still require a license, and all new hemp seed food items will not be permitted to feature the word cannabis or to show the cannabis leaf on packaging.

In response to the announcement Richard Barge of NZHIA said: “Whilst we welcome any progress that helps the iHemp industry, if the hemp seed is indeed to be traded now as  ‘any other edible seed’, the restrictions still in place will continue to be a source of postponing the full flourishing of the iHemp industry in New Zealand.

“We wait to see how the imminent order in council by the Ministry Of Primary Industries will effect the Industrial Hemp Regulations 2006.

“Is the New Zealand government serious about helping our rural economies?”

Press release end.

In this issue:

Hemp seed food will be legal on 12 November 2018

The Government has changed the rules around hemp seed so that it’s treated as just another food – a move which aims to “stimulate regional economies”.

“The Misuse of Drugs (Industrial Hemp) Regulations 2006 and the Food Regulations 2015 will be amended to allow the sale of hemp seed as food”, Food Safety Minister Damien O’Connor said on Tuesday.

He said the move is “great news for the hemp industry, which has argued for decades that the production of hemp seed foods will stimulate regional economies, create jobs and generate $10-20 million of export revenue within 3 to 5 years”.
