Since July 2001, Belgium has permitted the use of medicinal cannabis as a treatment for glaucoma, MS-related spasticity, AIDS and chronic pain by those in possession of a valid prescription from a registered doctor. But it seems that to date, no medical cannabis patient in Belgium has had their prescription filled by a Belgian pharmacy.


Hemp

Improve information

Belgium has a small but significant industrial hemp industry. In the course of the twentieth century, the industrial hemp plant disappeared from the ®elds, underthe in¯uence of an ideological and political climate that was increasingly hostile to the cultivation of hemp plants, in the context of moral panic over the negative consequences of recreational cannabis use in the USA and elsewhere, even though most varieties of industrial hemp had a low THC content.
