CBD Save Japan? New Oil Biz for High-Stress Society

On Demand Session Link
Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

Regrettably, Japan is infamous for its Karoshi and high suicide rate due to a high-stressed society where people are suffering from anxiety and loneliness. CBD products might be a savior for us, but Cannabis-related business is unlikely to be welcomed by Japanese conservatives regardless of what is legal and illegal.

VISIONGRAPH Inc. is a futuristic research and concept design firm that focuses on new products and technologies to make our world better in 10 years and after. This session will examine current laws and regulations on Cannabis use in Japan and how CBD could be a key to save Japanese people from social illness.
