Jersey's Cannabis Industry

Cannabis Cultivation in Jersey

A licence to cultivate industrial hemp for seed and fibre was first issued in the Island by the Health Minister in May 2017 to Jersey Hemp under the provisions of the 2009 Misuse of Drugs (General Provisions) (Jersey) Order.

Several additional licences for hemp cultivation and processing have since been provided by the Government – including the processing of hemp flowers for the extraction of cannabinoids in August 2019.

Licences for medicinal cannabis culitvation were first issued in December 2020 by the Jersey Cannabis Agency under a Memorandum of Understanding with the UK Home Office.

During the course of 2021, the Economic and International Affairs Scrutiny Panel undertook a review of the Regulations for the licensing, production and export of Medicinal Cannabis in Jersey and presented their report to the States Assembly. A response from Government to the findings and recommendations in the report is expected in due course.
