Little Collins Dispensary CBD shop in Kilkenny has been raided twice this week and local Gardaí advised that their products which contain 0.2% of THC or less is against the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977. (I am not the owner, nor do I have anything to do with the operating of this business) I am a customer of that store. And they have helped some close family members of mine that suffered from anxiety with their CBD products.
below, is some facts about what CBD is. And what the store sells. (Taken straight from their Facebook post.)
** I strongly believe that this store SHOULD remain opened, and I think this store benefits everyone. They are a LEGAL BUSINESS! #JUSTICEFORLITTLECOLLINS
They sell natural, organic hemp. Hemp is of the species cannabis sativa L. They cook with the hemp (hence you can smell it on the street), they put it in coffee, they sell it in flower form. By EU law, Hemp contains 0.2% or less of the psychoactive ingredient, THC. They are a legal business. Hemp is a super-food and a carbon-negative crop. The legislation around hemp & cannabis is currently being written in the High Court of Ireland. Our company is directly involved with this.
