Hemp & Cannabis Cultivation in Finland.


While you may legally possess medical cannabis in Finland, you cannot cultivate cannabis or
hemp

Finland has a long history of hemp use and is renowned in the world of hemp for the
development of hardy hemp varieties such as Finola, the trade name for a resilient, frost-
resistant cultivar. Developed in 1995, Finola was added to the EU’s list of subsidised crops in
2003, and has since become one of the most important hemp strains in the world today.

By the 18th and 19th centuries, hemp was the number one crop in Finland. by the 1950s very
little hemp was grown in Finland. Finland never passed any specific law banning the cultivation
of hemp, so the practice never fully died out, particularly in some of the more remote rural areas
of the country. Then, in the 1990s as global attitudes towards hemp began to shift once more,
Finland experienced a revival of the hemp industry, and has since grown to become one of the
most important contributors to the global hemp economy.

According to many CBD sellers, CBD is Legal in Finland but this may not be true. Their logic is
that just because CBD is not psychoactive and is not explicitly listed as a banned substance
therefore it’s legal.

Industrial Hemp in Finland


Although the hemp industry has been of unparalleled importance for much of Finland’s history,
the 20th century ushered in a period of rapid decline, as alternative (and less labour-intensive)
fibre crops including flax and cotton began to take precedence. As the 20th century progressed,
the passing of various anti-hemp laws across the world consolidated the decline, and by the
1950s very little hemp was grown in Finland beyond small private gardens.


However, unlike much of the rest of the world, Finland never passed any specific law banning
the cultivation of hemp, so the practice never fully died out, particularly in some of the more remote rural areas of the country. Then, in the 1990s as global attitudes towards hemp began to
shift once more, Finland experienced a revival of the hemp industry, and has since grown to
become one of the most important contributors to the global hemp economy.


Finland is particularly renowned in the world of hemp for the development of hardy hemp
varieties such as Finola, the trade name for a resilient, frost-resistant cultivar that flourishes in
high northern latitudes. Developed in 1995, Finola was added to the EU’s list of subsidized
crops in 2003, and has since become one of the most important hemp strains in the world
today.


However, the success of Finola has not come easily. There was strong initial resistance from
EU representatives over the initial inclusion of Finola, and in 2006, a series of samples showed
THC levels to be higher than the permitted 0.2%. Thus, Finola was removed from the list of
subsidized crops, and was only returned in 2013 following intensive campaigning from hemp
growers and activists in Finland and elsewhere.
