Aldi take the “higher” ground

October 22, 2019

It’s the news that none of us knew we wanted to hear, but now that we have, it’s hard to deny how excited we are.

Aldi, the German supermarket chain, has announced that it will start selling live cannabis plants in their Swiss stores for the very reasonable price of 10 Swiss Francs (~£7.80).

Both of the giant German grocers, Aldi and Lidl, have been selling locally grown CBD products in Switzerland for the past year. Promoted as a ‘tobacco substitute', Artur CBD by The Botanicals is dried CBD flower from cannabis plants grown around the Lake Constance region of Switzerland. Selling at CHF 20 for a 3 g bag, their success has prompted Aldi to further diversify into the CBD market.

Ranging from 30 – 35 cm in height and with less than 1% THC content, the buds that the cannabis plants will produce won’t offer you and sort of high. However, according to enthusiasts and even a few respected scientific studies, they will offer a wide range of benefits, from anti-anxiety to anti-inflammatory.

It’s a great move by Aldi, but unfortunately, one we’re not likely to see replicated in the UK just yet.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

University of Sydney to Offer Free Cannabis Testing by Johnny Green

The University of Sydney is launching a fairly robust study in an attempt to, as the university describes it, “investigate cannabis consumption, behaviours, and attitudes among users.” Part of the study involves offering free, anonymous cannabis testing for people that cultivate their own cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
