Public Newsletter for September and October 2018

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”.
