“Cannabis is a safe substance, produced under strict regulation through the UK law and a recognized medicinal and recreational substance, which are available to anyone who applies for it. However the government and police have made strict rules about cannabis use, production and supply, including arresting people caught using or selling it,” says Jake Liver, executive director of London cannabis store Equity. “We sell cannabis without exception to any government regulations in the UK and follow all the laws there. We are a member of thefflates, the governing body of cannabis in the UK. The cannabis we sell is sourced from across the world and no cannabis is allowed in our store.” This statement seems pretty straightforward, but what exactly does an entrepreneur or retailer need to know before they open up an online store in London? Feel free to visit their website at London Cannabis Store Association for more details.
Well, any licensed retailer in London can apply to become a member of thefflates, the governing body of cannabis in the UK. They will also need to purchase stock from a supplier that meets their stringent standards, and set up their own secure online store with a shopping cart. As well as this they must ensure that all products are delivered by a valid company and that they fully comply with all of the UK cannabis laws, and any other applicable federal and local laws
