The Cannabis Trades Association (CTA)  is Europe’s largest trade body representing the interests of the cannabis and hemp industry. As such, it provides a forum for business members working in the same industry.

The association works hard in support of this constantly evolving sector. It will seek to improve standards, raise safety, provide regulatory information and encourage research as well as acting as counterpoint to evolving government policies.

Buying from a CTA member is becoming even more important. For example, in the absence of a single regulatory code for businesses to adhere to, the CTA operates a code of conduct that the entire membership sign up to annually. This is necessary for introduction to payment providers, insurance brokers and banks.
