Having legalised the possession of cannabis containing one percent of tetrahydocannabinol (THC) or less back in 2011, a major Swiss supermarket chain is now poised to add low-dose marijuana cigarettes to its line of other hemp-based products—Industrie- oder Nutzhanf. While the cannabinoid content is too low to induce a high, the manufacturers believe that it retains enough of its psychoactive properties to help relieve anxiety and pain management, and warn customers about smoking their product outside of the country, as the EU tolerance for THC in hemp is exponentially lower and policies vary greatly by jurisdiction.
