Thailand's Agriculture Department is working on new rules for cannabis and hemp seed imports. With some parts of the cannabis plant no longer being classified as narcotics, more people are turning to CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive component found in hemp and cannabis.
According to Pichet Wiriyapapha, the department's director-general, the department is revising regulations to make the rules more transparent in light of the growing demand for hemp and cannabis. The department would also need authorization from those importing cannabis and hemp seeds. He claims that the latest cannabis and hemp seed legislation will be announced in May.
