Here when you need us...

The Cannabis Trades Association (CTA)  is the British Isles and Europe’s largest and only trade body representing the business interests of the medicinal cannabis, CBD wellness, and hemp industry. As such, it provides a forum for business members working in the same industry.  

The association consistently works hard in support of this ever changing sector. It seeks to:

  • improve standards
  • raise safety
  • provide regulatory information, and 
  • encourage research

 as well as acting as counterpoint to evolving government policies.

Buying from a CTA member is becoming even more important. 

For example, in the absence of a single regulatory code for businesses to adhere to, the CTA operates a code of conduct. This is necessary for introduction to payment providers, insurance brokers and banks.
