Italy's Ministry of Health Determines New THC Level Limits in Supplements

Italy’s Ministry of Health issued a decree concerning a notification to the European Commission. The degree updates the notification by identifying maximum THC levels for supplements and foods that both contain derivatives of Cannabis satvia L . The maximum level of THC permitted in seeds and seed flour is 2mg/kg, and for oil derived from seeds, it is 5mg/kg.

Luca Bucchini, the managing director of Hylobates Consulting, shared with NutraIngredients that the decree provides “legal certainty” to the use of hemp derivatives such as seed oil, seeds, and hemp flour. He also added that it “clearly permits” the use of such food ingredients in food supplements.

According to a recent study, the use of THC is not without risk. The scientific report was conducted by the European Food Safety Authority, and it assessed human exposure to THC. The study makes clear that it does “not prejudge” the legal status under European or national law concerning food products for which occurrence data have been provided. The study determined that the excessive consumption of THC can lead to complications, but also that further research is needed.
