As the Czech Republic became one of the medical cannabis planting and production countries, rutland & partners have been representing medical marihuana growing companies intending to do busines in the Czech Republic. Due to this fact we have acquired a thorough knowledge of the Czech legislation regulating the hemp and cannabis planting and processing. We advice cannabis companies on growth, manufacturing and import/export of medical cannabis plants and products (including CBD cosmetic products) from and to the Czech Republic. Such advice comprises both Czech CBD and THC products. We have also represented foreign businesses in the goverment tenders for growing cannabis plants with higher than 0,3 THC levels. In the Czech Republic only govermental body can purchase medical marijuana with the higher level of THC and distribute it to pharmacies. However, import of cannabis plants is allowed based on an import license. CBD production is less controled in the Czech Republic, but still is subject to regulation which must observed, both by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Czech custom offices.
In addition, we are involved at the moment in the lobbying with Czech parliament for the clarification of the Czech Act on Dependency Producing Substances and hope that we will succeed to provide our clients with easier access to the Czech medical marihuana market.
