UK: Cannabis café to open in Manchester (Colin Davies)
Wednesday 28 Oct 2015
Davies has teamed up with Nol van Schaik a businessman in Holland to sell oil containing cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is legal in the UK and it doesn’t contain another extract of the cannabis plant called tetrahydrocannabidol which causes the ‘high’ in large doses.
The 57-year-old activist said: ‘It’s legal, it’s good stuff and it works.
‘The oil is extracted from an industrial plant in Germany. We have people filling it into bottles, branding it and bringing it over. We’ve already sold quite a bit in England.’
But Davies insists you’re not going to get stoned off the products he’s planning to sell at a ‘cannabis social club’ Tariff Street in Manchester.
He told Manchester Evening News: ‘You’re not going to get high on it. It’s medicinal.
‘It helps with all kinds of things likes epilepsy, cancer and Crohn’s disease.’
Despite strong arguments to legalise the drug, possession and supply of cannabis is still against the law.
