China has a long history of growing hemp for fibre and other uses such as in Chinese traditional herbs and in food. However, the legal field is a patchwork of different standards and government documents. Currently, two provinces - Yunnan and Heilongjiang - have developed regulations for hemp and CBD, and Jilin province could be the third to do so. This report provides a comprehensive overview of the regulatory regime in China, looking at the general rules as well as the three provinces regulatory regimes.

Although unregulated, fibre hemp low in THC is grown in mainland China. The rules around hemp and CBD are complex and confusing, even more so with the individual provincial regulations that are currently emerging in the country. If you want to understand and gain insight into the regulatory regime for China and its provinces then this is the report for you. It offers a full overview of applicable restrictions - both in general and on a provincial level - in all areas including import/export, extracts and finished products.

The research is completely original and conducted by CBD-Intel’s multilingual legal analysis team using several sources, including online and offline resources and data, specialised legal software, interviews with key stakeholders and government officials, and via the collaboration with local lawyers and on-the-ground profession.
