Japan has emerged as a frontrunner in Asia for cultural hemp products, as well as the legal advancement of CBD and non-THC related food and cosmetics. Thailand, on the other hand, has unlocked regulations to allow cultivation, production, importation, ownership, and distribution of hemp seeds, making it a potential economic crop with diverse applications and significant economic value. The growing global market demand for hemp has also amplified interest in the plant.

Both organizations acknowledge that other countries in Asia are increasingly recognizing the health and economic benefits of cannabis. To ensure an ethical approach, including self-regulation and practical discussions with industry and government stakeholders, cooperation between MAJIC and TIHTA is of utmost importance.

There is a growing consumer interest in Japan and Thailand for the safe and effective usage of hemp products. MAJIC and TIHTA aim to address this demand by exchanging accurate information and promoting the benefits and safe usage of hemp products. They also intend to collaborate on advocating for improved laws regarding hemp product development, production, and marketing, in alignment with the needs of the hemp-related businesses.

Additionally, the organizations will work together to establish industry standards that guarantee the quality and safety of hemp products. Through knowledge exchange programs, members of TIHTA and MAJIC will benefit from sharing expertise and insights.
