Hemp regulation in New Zealand is well established, and no changes are expected in the short or long term. On the other hand, medicinal cannabis should face some minor administrative reforms in the near future. The future of recreational cannabis is still uncertain. It is currently illegal, and that status is not expected to change in the short term.

This report offers a comprehensive overview of the current regulatory framework for hemp, CBD, and cannabis (medicinal and recreational), covering all areas from processing and cultivation to finished products, extracts, and imports/exports.
