The inception of the CTA followed meetings with the MHRA in November 2016.
The Hemp Trades Association UK Limited, officially adopted the trading name of the Cannabis Trades Association UK at the first AGM in May 2017. Attended by the members at the time, the Founding Directors were appointed. The CTA was set up as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.
All our surpluses are turned into useful things for the Association such as conferences, trade events and communications, representing our members throughout the British Isles, Europe, and the rest of the world. We also have extensive relationships worldwide.
After Covid, we are centred on helping our members build their businesses to recover and strengthen the industry by using the CTA to lobby on behalf of our members and to create cannabis frameworks across the British Isles.
