Marijuana has risen in popularity immensely all around the world in recent years.

With more countries and states moving to approve it as a medical substance, the stigma surrounding its usage has been vanishing. Additionally, studies into its long term effects and potential side issues have been improving as well.

This is partially due to the rise in popularity of products that contain CBD. CBD products have been sweeping the world by storm, as they have been snapped up by the health, wellbeing, beauty and sports industries with ease. CBD is incredibly useful, with a number of healthy benefits that users can expect to enjoy.

In terms of cannabis as a whole, there have been some recent developments in the industry that are worth knowing about. One of these is the recent debate surrounding Uganda and marijuana. Could it potentially end up being a major export crop for the country, and how could this happen? That’s what we’ll be looking at today.

Here at Big Eye, we’re incredibly passionate about bringing our audience the latest and greatest in this fascinating country. In this blog post, we’ll be going over everything that you need to know about Uganda and cannabis.

What does the EU have to do with this?

To start off with, let’s take a look at what the EU has to do with the marijuana movement in Uganda. As this Daily Monitor article points out, the EU approved Uganda’s movement to get involved with the marijuana industry. This means that cannabis growers in the region can get involved with the global market, which is fantastic.

Could marijuana be a major export crop for Uganda?

So, could marijuana be a major export crop for Uganda? The short answer is yes.

There is a huge demand for cannabis, CBD and hemp related products right now. As the worlds of medical cannabis and CBD grow, there will be even more demand for cannabis to be flown across the world to support the market.

Of course, there are certain issues that Uganda is going to need to overcome. As this article points out, Uganda is still going over some legal aspects with the cannabis movement. There are limitations being put on the cannabis industry by the government, which could affect who gets involved.

The government gave their reasons for this, saying that they wanted people who were already financially stable to get involved with growing cannabis. The representatives stated that this would mean people only grew it for medical purposes, and that this movement would help to stamp out any illicit behaviour.

Important things to remember as a cannabis user

In general, there are a few important things to remember as a cannabis user- especially if you’re in a place like Uganda where it is still relatively new.

One of the most important things is to make sure that you’re aware of local laws or legislation that might prohibit you from growing, owning or using cannabis products. Don’t get caught out by being unaware of your local practices.

It’s also important to make sure that you’re using cannabis and other products safely. Research whether it could affect existing medications that you might be taking, and make sure to look into the legitimacy of your supplier as well.

To sum up

As you can see, the marijuana industry is never without controversy.

The EU has backed Uganda’s marijuana efforts, however there is still some debate and discussion surrounding who can get involved with it within the country. There is still a lot of progress to be made, but it’s great to see that the marijuana industry is thriving in so many different parts of the world.

Above all, it’s vital that the cannabis industry in Uganda is heavily regulated, and that local people getting involved with it are treated fairly. Regulation and legislation can help to make sure that no illicit practices are taking place, and that the products that are being put out are safe to use.

It certainly will be fascinating to see where the cannabis industry ends up by the end of the year. Will more countries and states move to accept it? Will there be even more innovative uses of CBD and THC in the industry? Only time will tell. Take a look here to read more about some of the best CBD oils that are available on the market right now.
