In 2011, Switzerland legalized the sale of low-THC cannabis, but only recently saw a spike in sales. Last year, some shops began selling this low-THC cannabis as a healthier alternative to tobacco and now, retailers are struggling to keep up with demand. The demand is so high that even marijuana wholesaler, KannaSwiss, increased their number of employees in the last few months from 5 to 20, while still struggling to match demand. Even though these low-THC products don’t have the same psychoactive effect as cannabis with normal levels of THC, some in the medical field and police are concerned of the drug’s other health risks.
