Australia: Cannabis-derived ice cream, cake and beer given OK on health grounds
    #537351 - 03/16/11 08:58 AM (6 years, 14 days ago)


Wednesday 16 Mar 2011
CANNABIS ice cream, cake and beer have been cleared on health grounds by Australia's food watchdog, despite fears the "marijuana munchies" could trigger positive drug tests.

A Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) investigation concluded that industrial hemp contained such low levels of the psychoactive substance delta 9-tetraydrocannabinol (THC) that anyone consuming the food would not feel its effect, The Australian reported.

"FSANZ has not identified any safety concerns relating to the consumption of hemp foods," a Food Standards report said.

The Food Standards authority yesterday sought public comment on an application by deregistered Sydney doctor Andrew Katelaris to lift Australia's ban on food derived from cannabis.

Mr Katelaris, who is appealing against his deregistration for supplying medical marijuana to patients, said the seeds of industrial hemp contained more Omega 3 acids than seafood.

"We're looking at making ice cream and health food bars," he said. "Our vision is that anything you can do with soy beans or dairy you can do better with hemp seed."

In 2002, a Food Standards recommendation to approve hemp as food was overturned for fear it would "send the wrong message to the community".
