Medical marijuana in Thailand


Thailand’s Public Health and Tourism and Sports ministers have set now a goal to launch the very first medical marijuana tours in Southeast Asia. Although recreational use of cannabis is still banned, Thailand legalised medical marijuana and use of CBD oil (Cannabis Oil) back in 2018.

Cannabis plantations across the country are still being developed.

“The goal of the tour is to increase awareness of marijuana for medical purposes and inform those who are interested in growing the plant [by]the laws,” said Tourism and Sports Minister Phipat Ratchakitprakarn as shared by Chiang Rai Times.
