The State of CBD and Hemp in Cyprus

Cyprus is a transcontinental island nation belonging politically to the European Union, yet geographically to Asia. This means that the state of its laws regarding the use of cannabis (CBD and others) is more closely related to European law than Asian law.

How Does Cyprus Classify CBD and Cannabis?

As of the current date (27 July 2021), Cyprus classifies tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) as a controlled substance and thus prohibits the importation, cultivation, and possession of any products containing even traces of THC.

However, products containing CBD are classified as functional substances and hemp seed oil is classified as a food supplement. What this means is that the importation, cultivation, and possession of CBD and hemp products in Cyprus follow the same laws as that of other functional products.

What this means for CBD products in Cyprus is that:

  • No permit is required for ownership or personal use.
  • They can be brought into the region from other areas, provided it is only enough to cover the duration of your stay.
  • They cannot contain any traces of THC.

Can You Purchase CBD in Cyprus?

Currently, there are several stores (both online and brick-and-mortar) in Cyprus that sell CBD products.
