In this week’s podcast Mitch and Andrew sit down with CBD Reviews Australia founder Steven Ng to chat about how a lack of reliable access to cannabis products and information can harm the consumer.
Steven Ng is a passionate cannabis advocate and a founder of CBD Reviews Australia, an online community where members review cannabis and hemp products. Steven analyses medicinal cannabis products for quality and composition and publishes this data openly and freely.
In Australia, 90% of cannabis products are still being accessed via the black market as opposed to legal avenues. Much of this is due to the country’s conservative regulatory policies, and the lack of publicly available information about these legal, medicinal alternatives.
The barrier of entry placed on legally obtaining medicinal CBD can draw consumers to purchasing from the black market, where there is an assumption that these products are cheaper, of better quality and more easily attainable. However, with a lack of data, health monitoring processes or quality control in these unregulated marketplaces, consumers are placed in harm’s way.
