Swiss Supermarket Chain Lidl Begins Selling Products Made From Hemp

Lidl, a supermarket chain in Switzerland, has recently started selling products made from hemp flower.

As an alternative to rolling tobacco, Swiss customers can now purchase two products derived from hemp flowers.

These products are high in CBD oil and low in THC.

CBD is a component found in hemp or marijuana, which gives its consumers a soothing and calming feel while THC are the green herbs’ natural psychoactive ingredient.

A 1.5g box, from plants grown indoors, costs 17.99 Swiss francs ($23 Canadian). A 3g bag will set you back 19.99 Swiss francs.

“The manufacturer relies on sustainable agriculture and refrains entirely from adding chemical, synthetic or genetically modified substances,” said Lidl.

While the sale of cannabis has already been legal in Switzerland to people, who are 18 and over since 2011 as long as it contains no more than 1% of THC, it is still not widely available.

After all, Lidl’s new products are hemp-based and are not made from cannabis.
