Thailand: Use of Cannabis and Hemp in Cosmetics

As a result of the delisting of certain parts of cannabis and hemp plants as Category 5 narcotics under the Narcotics Act B.E. 2522 (1976), as last amended in 2020 the Ministry of Public Health has issued a new notification that permits the use of parts of cannabis and hemp plants, and extracts from cannabis and hemp containing cannabidiol in cosmetic products. The new notification has been issued under the Cosmetic Products Act B.E. 2558 (2015).
