The information obtained by Hespress reveal that about 50% of the authorized area (some 2,500 hectares) has been reserved for this crop. The land will begin to receive the plants grown in greenhouses from the seeds imported in accordance with the legal procedure in force.

At the same time, activities for the second season of legal cannabis production continue. In this regard, training sessions and workshops were organized by the National Agency for the Regulation of Cannabis Activities (ANRAC) and the National Office for Food Safety (ONSSA), bringing together all stakeholders. These events took place yesterday in Chefchaouen, today in Al Hoceima and next week in Taounate.

The program is aimed at all stakeholders and members of processing and production cooperatives, and aims to train and inform them on three main themes. The first concerns the construction of processing units, the second the best cultivation and processing practices known by the acronyms “ GACP » (Good Agricultural and Collection Practices) et « GMP » (Good Manufacturing Practices). The third theme is linked to the financing possibilities of production cooperatives to support their development.

In addition, licenses have been granted to 170 cooperatives, compared to only 32 last year, and licenses have been granted for more than 2,700 hectares to farmers, compared to only 430 last year.
