Cannabis cultivation in France and valorization of hemp: challenges and opportunities for innovation

Today hemp production in France is limited to industrial applications. A regulatory evolution is expected this year to allow a harvest and a valuation of the luminaries.

In parallel, the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) is launching an experimental to demonstrate the benefit of cannabis for medical purposes. This raises the question of the structuring of a French and specialized cannabis sector with highly technological production constraints.

In this evolving context, Innov'Alliance wishes to explore and anticipate avenues of innovation from the production of hemp and cannabis to the valorization of cannabinoids in "wellness" markets in nutraceutical, cosmetic and beverage food.

The competitiveness cluster is organizing a technical day on July1st, in Avignon, on this theme, allowing participants to discover the "Hemp of possibilities" and to explore the issues and avenues of innovation. Many issues will be raised, from the production of hemp and cannabis to the formulation and valorization of CBD and cannabinoids.
