Cannabis Professionals (CannaPro) is the trade association for the UK’s cannabis, CBD and hemp businesses.
CannaPro will represent this fast-growing sector to the authorities, standing up to the Home Office, MHRA, FSA and Trading Standards, advocating for members’ interests, not acting as a government enforcer but as its members’ champion and to promote the development of the legal cannabis sector.
CannaPro will offer guidance and support to all businesses, helping them to navigate through law and regulations on drugs, medicines, food and cosmetics.
CannaPro will also launch a social media campaign, aiming to inform and educate consumers about the benefits of CBD and the pitfalls. The market is full of scammers, fake claims and snake oil salesmen. Because of the historic stigma and fear around cannabis, government authorities are doing nothing, many people are misinformed and misunderstand. CannaPro will explain the facts clearly and direct consumers to certified businesses which they can rely on.
Membership of CannaPro is without charge. All guidance will be published openly for everyone to benefit from. Free-of-charge support and answers to individual questions will be available online.
Businesses wishing to be certified by CannaPro will be reviewed for their products, trading standards, marketing and conduct. Certified companies will be entitled to display the CannaPro badge as a mark of quality, ethics and reliability.
Backed by CLEAR, the UK’s longest-established cannabis group with a network exceeding all other UK drugs policy groups combined, CannaPro members will benefit from CLEAR’s wide reach and influence with UK consumers.
