In 2016, Italy removed the need for authorization to grow certified hemp with levels of THC below 0.2%, in order to stimulate the production of industrial hemp and to offer an alternative to the cultivation of wheat for farmers damaged by low prices, desiccated lands, and competition from large corporations importing grain from abroad
In 2017, the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies issued a new directive stating that hemp cultivation was legal again. Stipulations were put into place:
The level of THC should not exceed 0.2%, as stated in European legislation.
If it is higher but does not exceed 0.6%, the farmer will not be penalized. If plants contain more than 0.6% THC, the authorities have the right to destroy or impound the farmer’s crops / growing facility.
On January 15, 2020, the Italian Ministry of Health published a decree on the Official Gazette setting the maximum level of THC content allowed in hemp food at 2 milligrams/kilogram for hempseeds, hempseed flour, and supplements containing ingredients derived from hemp; and 5 milligrams/kilogram for hempseed oil.
The sale and purchase of cannabis flowers (known as buds) is also legal in Italy, as long as the THC content is below 0.6%. Called ‘cannabis light’ by Italians, the ‘bud’ industry is thriving.
The Italian Ministry of Health does not require any authorization to cultivate hemp plants containing a maximum tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content ranging from 0.2 to 0.6 percent. Growers are required to keep the seed tags and related invoices for at least twelve months.
