Cannabis Pilot Trials

With this bill, a legal basis was created for the implementation of scientific pilot tests with cannabis, limited in terms of location, time and subject matter, in order to gain knowledge about the effects of the regulated use of cannabis for non-medical purposes.


The ordinance on cannabis pilot trials came into force in mid-May. Applications for pilot trials can now be submitted to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Concrete trial projects will probably start in 2022.

On September 14, the city of Zurich published details of the Zurich Cannabis Study on published. It is our turn to prepare an application for a cannabis social club in the city of Zurich. The city will submit all applications collectively to the FOPH in the 1st quarter of 2022. The project can then start in autumn 2022 at the earliest.
