Coop, one of the biggest retailers in Switzerland, announced this week that they are to sell CBD cigarettes. They will be on sale from July 24th 2017 and will cost 19.90 CHF for a pack of 20. The cigarettes are produced by Swiss tobacco company Heimat.
According to Roger Koch, Heimat’s owner, the CBD cigarettes are the first of their kind. Every pack contains 4 grams of CBD (0.20 grams per cigarette), mixed with tobacco.
The cigarettes will be available at most Coop affiliates. They will be on sale to everyone who’s 18 or older. The Coop chain has a smart approach when it comes to Cannabis related products. They already sell hemp ice-tea, hemp beer, hemp oil and a bio hemp-spread.
Social support for cannabis in Switzerland is relatively high. Recently, the club Legalize It launched an initiative to make cannabis legal. The government is currently checking their initiative. Once approved, Legalize It has 18 months to collect 100,000 signatures to have it recognized. (Make sure you support them!)
This is another example how cannabis is treated differently in other countries. Most stoners in America would call you fu**ing crazy if you launched a product like this. Mixing CBD with tobacco? It’s beyond defensible if you ask us. Why would anyone mix medical cannabis with tobacco? How can you possibly benefit from that?
The fact is, though, that most stoners in Europe consume their cannabis by mixing it with tobacco. So it would come as no surprise if this product became the next hype in the Swiss Cannabis Market. But will we buy it? I very much doubt it 😀
