  1. hi Thailand Cannabis could generate 8 billion baht for Thai pharmaceutical industry by 2025, expert says Cannabis could become a major cash crop in Thailand. An expert says the cannabis-based medicinal products could generate up to 8 billion baht for the Thai pharmaceutical industry by 2025. Medical cannabis has been legal in Thailand for the past couple years, but recently the government agreed to allow parts of the plant with very, low traces of the “high-inducing” component tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, to be in medicinal products and food. Cannabis-based medicines have been used as palliative treatment for some cancer patients in Thailand. Last year, nearly 1 million patients used cannabis-based medicines, according to an economist at Kasetsart University’s Agricultural and Resource Economics Department, Ravissa Suchato. Around 1.2 billion baht worth of medical cannabis was consumed last year, according to Ravissa, who led a recent study on the economic impact of commercial cannabis cultivation in Thailand. If the average consumption rises as expected, medical cannabis could generate 8 billion baht within the next 5 years. “We believe marijuana has great potential as a cash crop because more patients will start using marijuana-based drugs soon.” In the past, Thai officials have discussed the opportunity to tap into the global cannabis market by exporting medical cannabis, but Ravissa says Thailand still has a way to go. “Globally, the recreational use of marijuana has risen a lot faster than pharmaceutical use, so the prospect of exporting marijuana-based medicines from Thailand is still a long way off.” Parts of the cannabis plant that are rich in THC, like the buds, are still illegal and classified as a Category 5 narcotic. Trafficking the plant is still heavily criminalised. Just over the past few days, border patrol police in the Northeastern province Nakhon Pathom seized hundreds of kilograms of dried, compressed cannabis believed to have been trafficked across the Mekong River from Laos and destined for the South, possibly to Malaysia. https://thethaiger.com/news/national/cannabis-could-generate-8-billion-baht-for-thai-pharmaceutical-industry-by-2025-expert-says Bongme
  2. hi Health Minister Says Medical Cannabis Clinics a Big Success in Thailand Thailand’s Health Minister say at least 70% of patients using medical say their symptoms have improved since starting treatment. Health minister Anutin Charnvirakul made the claim at a training session on the use of medical cannabis extracts in Buri Ram yesterday. Over 300 medical cannabis clinics that have opened nationwide since the legalization of cannabis in Thailand. Mr Anutin made the claim at a training session on the use of medical cannabis extracts in Muang district of Buri Ram on Wednesday, the Bangkok Post reported. Some 150 physicians and pharmacists from the 9th Public Health Region participated in the training session that was also attended by the permanent secretary for public health, Kiattiphum Wongrajit and Department of Medical Services director-general, Somsak Akksilp. The training was done via a video call to the 7th Public Health Region to share medical knowledge and technology insights into the best way to use medical cannabis. Medical Cannabis treatment for thousands of patients Mr Anutin, who is also deputy prime minister, said the ministry will promote the use of medical cannabis to help patients who need it. He said 311 medical cannabis clinics at hospitals have provided treatment for over 14,200 people, most suffering from terminal cancer. The rest are patients with Parkinson’s disease, drug-resistant neuropathic pain, insomnia and other ailments. Over 98% said they experienced no side effects. Many of the cannabis clinics have hotlines to give advice on medical cannabis, a system to help patients who need palliative care and online registration for those wishing to receive consultation about the use of medical cannabis. Dr Somsak said his department is making steady progress in educating health workers nationwide. Since 2019, around 11,750 health workers from his department and the Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine have received training, he said. Hospitals qualified to operate medical cannabis clinics are required to obtain a medical cannabis licence issued by the Food and Drug Administration, certified professionals and a symptom tracking system, he said. https://www.chiangraitimes.com/economy-business/health-minister-says-medical-cannabis-clinics-a-big-success-in-thailand/ Bongme
  3. hi Thailand to Grown Medical Cannabis and Exported it Across the World An Economic subcommittee in Thailand has reported medical cannabis will be raised to the status of an economic crop in and exported across the world. A government subcommittee studying the draft law on cultivation of cannabis in Thailand told the Nation yesterday. The subcommittee said Thai farmers should also have access to both certified commercial cannabis seed and be able to generate their own seed stocks, Weerachai na Nakorn, an adviser to a community cannabis enterprise said. The government panel agreed to promote Thai medical cannabis in the Asian, European and US markets. Weerachai was speaking at a seminar organised by the Play La Ploen community cannabis enterprise. Large areas of Thailand are suitable for cultivation of medical cannabis. Furthermore cannabis will significantly boost incomes in the agricultural and associated industrial sector. Studies were conducted on medical cannabis crops, which was legalized last year. Thailand currently has only four cannabis cultivars (RPF1-4) and needs to develop more varieties. Above all to support industrial production, said Weerachai. Each different cannabis cultivar has unique characteristics and is suited to a specific geography, he added. Some are more fibrous; some produce lots of seeds; and some are high in cannabidiol and related compounds. The Play La Ploen enterprise is collaborating with the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation on a pilot contract farming project to grow high-CBD medical marijuana and build a network of community producers. The pilot project is cultivating two strains of marijuana, a Thai and a foreign cultivar, said Thanaporn Pornsangkul, a scientist at Play La Ploen community enterprise. The goal is to produce cannabis drugs for more than 20 northeastern hospitals in Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Buriram and Surin. https://www.chiangraitimes.com/economy-business/thailand-to-grown-medical-cannabis-and-exported-it-across-the-world/ Bongme
  4. i Thai Cabinet approves draft law expanding access to cannabis BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand’s Cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal from the Public Health Ministry that would allow health professionals, farmers and medical patients to grow, produce and export cannabis and its products. Deputy government spokeswoman Trisulee Trisaranakul said Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul submitted a draft amendment to the Narcotics Act to expand access to medical cannabis in Thailand. The draft amendment would allow patients who are certified by doctors, traditional and applied medicine professionals, and farmers to ask for permission from the ministry to produce, import, export, distribute and possess cannabis, she said. The existing law allows only government units and those who are involved in medical cannabis development with permission from the ministry to engage in such activities to develop medical knowledge in collaboration with the government. The draft law would also hand responsibility to the Public Health Ministry to use seized cannabis for medical use. The draft will be sent to the Council of State for legal scrutiny and fine-tuning and then to Parliament for a vote. Thailand’s legislature in 2018 amended the country’s drug law to allow the licensed medical use of cannabis as well as kratom, a locally grown plant traditionally used as a stimulant and painkiller. Thailand was previously known for harsh anti-drug laws, but is now eyeing the economic potential of cannabis. A report last year by Prohibition Partners, which claims to be the leading authority on the subject, said Asia’s medical cannabis market would be worth around $5.8 billion by 2024. In January, Thailand opened its first two full-time clinics dispensing cannabis oil for medical treatment, a step in the government’s policy of promoting the licensed use of marijuana products to relieve the symptoms of a range of ailments. https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/thai-cabinet-approves-draft-law-131731286.html?guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvLnVrLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAJ0cxZ4jqZ_jUmYReKAYteK2Tr0KGRj_kRPAqj7v0Msb2hKII6das_ZYD3GYLeafVMWzQeabRxAauf-t39Zm-drEqGVY-Xj6yP5FEtVo6zxYebefeiF-ZIkfQueyiRely9jOsER5vvucczF1h0k_CMHghq6jR6_qLLhCXz0w7rbH&_guc_consent_skip=1596547403 Bongme
  5. Hi Thai FDA refuses to endorse Decha’s cannabis oil Patients who were looking forward to gain access to medicinal cannabis oil, produced by the Khao Kwan Foundation’s Decha Siripat, learned yesterday that the Thai Food and Drug Administration have declined to endorse his own version of the drug. 12 organisations have now accused the FDA of procrastination and mismanagement noting that the FDA could have approved the product because it meets all the requirements. The ‘people’s network’ say the matter should be handled by the Department of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine, so that production of the medicinal cannabis oil by the Khao Kwan Foundation can continue uninterrupted. But Admiral Charnchai Charoensuwan, president of the Thai Traditional Medical Council, clarified that since Mr. Decha is not a qualified traditional doctor, his medicinal cannabis oil is regarded as illegal. Mr. Decha has been widely recognised by civic groups and supporters of alternative medicine as a medicinal cannabis expert. He has been dispensing his cannabis concoctions to patients suffering from different diseases for several years. Others have complained that he has been able to trade with his potions against the law and without proper registration or training. He was arrested after an amendment of the narcotics law to legalise medicinal cannabis but many supporters, including high-level politicians (including the Thai PM), came to his aid and he was immediately released. https://thethaiger.com/news/national/thai-fda-refuses-to-endorse-dechas-cannabis-oil Bongme
