Why are cannabis sweets like lollipops legal abroad?

The popularity of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) has skyrocketed in recent years. These substances are often associated with cannabis, but it is important to know that cannabis-flavoured sweets and lollipops abroad usually do not contain any actual content of these substances. But what about the rules and laws surrounding these products? We have researched them and are happy to explain why they are legal, even if they have the flavour of cannabis.

What are cannabis-flavoured candies and lollipops?

Cannabis-flavoured candies and lollipops are treats designed to taste like cannabis. They imitate the unique and distinctive taste of this plant, allowing people to enjoy the taste experience without experiencing the impact of THC or CBD on the body. While some brands may offer products that actually contain THC or CBD, we focus on sweets and lollipops without these substances that you mostly see in souvenir shops.

The absence of THC and CBD

In many countries, THC and CBD are still classified as banned substances under drug legislation[1] . This makes it illegal to sell products containing these substances or derived from cannabis. Cannabis-flavoured sweets and lollipops are often produced to contain no THC or CBD. This means they have no psychoactive effects and can therefore be legal even in countries where cannabis is banned[2] .

The impact of local legislation

It is important to note that the legality of cannabis-flavoured candies and lollipops depends on each country’s local laws. What may be legal in one country may be illegal in another. Therefore, it is important to check the rules and regulations of each specific country before buying, importing or consuming such products[3] .

Alternatives to THC- and CBD-containing sweets

If you are looking for candies and cannabis lollipops that do contain THC or CBD, in some countries you can find products that match the edibles we carry. In countries where cannabis is legalised for recreational or medicinal use, there may be shops that sell these products legally. Of course, it is important to observe legal age limits and other restrictions to make sure you stay within the limits of the law!

Cannabis-flavoured candies and lollipops without THC or CBD
In general, candies and lollipops without THC or CBD are safe to consume. They do not bring psychoactive effects. So it actually has the same risks as cannabased sweets without cannabis flavouring.

If cannabis-flavoured candies and lollipops do not contain THC or CBD, they are usually legal to consume even in countries where cannabis is banned. Of course, it is always important to be aware of the exact laws and regulations of the country concerned to avoid any risks. The best thing to do is just buy them in our Headshop!
