About the Cannabis Industry Council

The Cannabis Industry Council brings together organisations, businesses, and groups working in many different ways to promote the cause of medical cannabis, hemp and CBD. 

Together, we influence the future of cannabis in the UK and learn from and network with fellow sector organisations. The Cannabis Industry Council is overseen by the Executive Committee, with Working Groups made up of members steering our work.
