This week, we welcome back Aurélien Bernard and Benjamin-Alexandre Jeanroy, Co-Founders of Augur Associates – French cannabis consultancy based in Paris.
In this episode, our guests update us on the current regulations and restrictions of cannabis production and use in France, we also discuss France’s new medical cannabis trial, and how the country’s traditionally conservative opinions towards cannabis are changing for the better.
Former web project manager for Webedia, Aurelien is the founder of Newsweed, the reference media in France for the past 6 years on legal and global cannabis news. His expertise ranges from in-depth theoretical to a technical and practical field market vision of the cannabis & hemp industries and ecosystems in France, at the EU and global level, as well as of the plant itself. He has collaborated with some of the largest European and North-American companies and has the most developed network in France on the medical cannabis and wellness hemp value chains.
Former consultant for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Benjamin-Alexandre co-founded in 2016 the think tank ECHO Citoyen working on drug policy reform in France. He is also the co-founder of the Syndicat Professionnel du Chanvre (SPC), of the european and french chapters of LEAP, of the Thémis participatory network, of the French Psychedelic Society, and of the patient advocacy group Espoir (Im)patient. For the past 5 years in France, he has worked towards creating bridges between actors involved around cannabis, notably through his work with the French Professional Hemp Union (Syndicat Professionnel du Chanvre – SPC) and the production of its collaborative groundbreaking white papers.
