Medical marijuana cultivation through the internet

Cannabis is now legal in Thailand and a number of other nations. Cannabis and the equipment needed to grow it are available for purchase online. However, each country’s rules vary, and non-specialists may still require authorization to cultivate it. If the cannabis is sold, a local government license is also required. The proliferation of Covid-19 has had a tremendous impact on the agricultural business around the world in recent years. People are using the internet as a new mechanism and instrument to grow the agricultural sector, facilitating the transition from a traditional farm to a contemporary one. As a result, each country’s government should promote modern agriculture through the use of the internet, often known as Internet Agriculture. The importance of the internet and financial support in the development of modern agriculture has been demonstrated. Those who want to grow medical marijuana face a major issue as a result of this. The long-standing issue is that cultivating, processing, and selling cannabis is always difficult and confusing. Furthermore, the cannabis cultivation cycle is lengthy, inconvenient, and costly.

The majority of the sector is made up of customers who produce and buy marijuana for medical purposes through an internet channel. Leading organizations in this developing industry, which are local groupings and important pillars of the industry, are certified and sponsored by the government, are backing the market. The service and quality of cannabis growing online with them are equivalent to that of large offline brands such as HARVEST in the United States. Cannabis cultivation on the cloud paves the way for a burgeoning medicinal marijuana market. It generates integrated development for the industry at the primary, secondary, and postsecondary levels, which compliments the new policy as well as internet and national agriculture growth. The online-growing cooperative is known as Internet Agriculture. The internet, agriculture, and banking are all part of this strategy. The model might be used to produce any plant, however the most popular and heated topic is growing cannabis for medical purposes.

Thailand’s state hospitals are permitted to give cannabis oil without restriction

According to the Ministry of Public Health, three kinds of cannabis oil have been added to Thailand’s National List of Essential Medicines, or NLEM. Patients can now be prescribed cannabis oil by doctors from 893 government hospitals around the country. Thailand’s Minister of Public Health, Anutin Charnvirakul, claims that the country now has 1,173 marijuana clinics. Government hospitals may freely deliver cannabis extract oil to patients in specific instances, according to Thailand’s Government Pharmaceutical Organisation, or GPO.

The psychoactive element in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is present in higher concentrations in the first form of cannabis oil. The second type has a larger concentration of CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-intoxicating chemical with therapeutic effects. The third solution, according to Dr Nathakan Suwanpiddokul, a GPO pharmacist, contains an equal amount of THC and CBD. The addition of cannabis oil to the NLEM will make the treatment significantly more accessible in Thailand because the government will cover the costs for anyone administered the medicine in a state-owned hospital. The oil will be used largely by cancer patients, particularly those who are suffering from nausea and vomiting as a result of chemotherapy. The oil will also be used to alleviate the misery of terminally ill patients, especially those who are unable to sleep or eat.

The addition of cannabis to the NLEM will be published in the Royal Gazette soon.

Decriminalization and legalization of cannabis products were important platforms when the Bhumjaithai Party ran for power in 2019. The Bhumjaithai Party, which has 51 elected members in the ruling coalition, is led by Anutin Charnvirakul. According to Anutin, one of the Ministry of Health’s key policies is the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The NLEM’s inclusion of all three medical cannabis extract oil compositions is encouraging.

Marijuana is officially decriminalized in Thailand today


The delisting of cannabis as a narcotic substance on Thursday opened the door to the release of more than 4,200 convicts serving sentences for cannabis offenses throughout the country.

People condemned to prison for other crimes were not released, however.

More than 3,000 inmates serving sentences for single marijuana offenses around the country will be freed on Thursday.

The Ministry of Public Health has stated that cannabis would be removed off the list of category 5 drugs as of Thursday, June 9.

A total of 4,200 inmates incarcerated in cannabis cases will be eligible for release, according to the Narcotics Suppression Bureau. Arrest warrants for cannabis usage would be withdrawn and cases still under investigation would be dismissed.

On Thursday, the Office of the Narcotics Control Board will formally remove cannabis off the Category 5 narcotics list, meaning that police will no longer be able to arrest anybody in possession of the drug (ONCB).

Until Thursday, when a Ministry of Public Health notification published in the Royal Gazette on February 9 comes into effect, the ONCB explained to police around the country how cannabis would no longer be regarded an illegal narcotic.

To put it another way, this implies that it will be legal to cultivate, grow, import, export, distribute, use, and own cannabis. As a result, cannabis oil extracts that include higher concentrations of the principal psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), will still be classified as a category 5 substance and be subjected to the same restrictions as other drugs.

‘Police officers may confiscate any items that contain cannabis oil without authorisation or that are not authorized by the Food and Drug Administration before filing charges against wrongdoers,’ an ONCB source said.

Those who possess or produce cannabis for personal use are exempt from arrest by the police.

Despite being allowed to cultivate cannabis in one’s own house, it is illegal to cook with dried cannabis buds, what do you think?
