Cyprus Cannabis Association established under auspices of Keve

A Cyprus Cannabis Association has been established under the auspices of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Keve).

The inaugural meeting was held on Wednesday at the Chamber’s offices. The mains aims are: representing all interested stakeholders and organisations that can benefit from the development of a vibrant, sustainable and flourishing cannabis industry in Cyprus; representing the cannabis industry at all levels of government institutions and ministries in order to educate, research and promote growth of the cannabis industry; creating a prosperous and economically viable cannabis industry in Cyprus.

International developments in the cannabis industry are moving rapidly as the medical and other benefits surrounding cannabinoid therapy, based on the constantly growing body of scientific research, proves that medical cannabis can be used to successfully treat a variety of symptoms such as pain; inflammation; intestinal disease; epilepsy; nausea; cancer; AIDS and multiple sclerosis.
