The Hemp Trades Association UK Limited t/as The Cannabis Trades Association UK (CTA UK) is the only UK centric trade association for the UK, working with all sectors of the hemp and cannabis industry to promote good practice, provide practical advice and ensure consumers of legal cannabis and hemp products have access to top quality information.

After meetings with the MHRA in November 2016, we were told unequivocally that…

If the industry does not work together to ensure standards and advice is consistent and above all legal, there will not be an industry.

Since this time we have worked consistently with the MHRA and the FSA and recently been added as recognised Stakeholders to the official guidance given by both authorities as well as working with many local council and law enforcement agencies up and down the country. We are the largest Hemp and Cannabis Association by Membership in Europe, representing over 1500 businesses and working with Government to establish legislation to ensure the industry has proper and effective guidance.
