Swiss tobacco producer, Heimat, branched out and is now legally making CBD joints that will be sold at supermarkets. Heimat says their joints contain upwards of 20-percent CBD, and a pack will cost 19.90 francs. CBD is ideal for reducing pain, inflammation and anxiety.
In 2011, Switzerland legalized marijuana with up to 1-percent THC, The Local reports.
Swiss residents can order joints from Heimat online or can visit select stores, like Coop, to purchase the joints. Coop, and other select retailers will start selling the joints on July 24. Coop already sells hemp-based products such as oil, beer and tea. Those products are said to be “in high demand.”
Switzerland’s anti-drugs association has an issue with the CBD products. According to this association, no studies on the long-term effects of CBD have been done, so selling these products is “problematic” in their eyes.
Switzerland’s annual legal marijuana sales are roughly 100 million francs.
