Cannabispflanze im privaten Garten, Luxemburgs neue Gesetzgebung erlaubt den Anbau

The revolution in Luxembourg's cannabis policy: private cultivation and seed sales

Luxembourg is growing and the trade can look forward to a new THC limit of 1%.


With a law of July 10, 2023, Luxembourg took a big step towards a modern cannabis policy. In addition to legalizing home cultivation of cannabis and selling cannabis seeds, the country has also increased the THC limit for flower trade to 1%. This opens new doors for the natural enjoyment of the flowers and reflects the progressive attitude of the liberal-green-social-democratic government that has been in power since 2013.

Natural cannabis experience by raising the THC limit

Increasing the THC limit to 1% paved the way for a more natural cannabis experience. In the past, the buds, which produced between 0.3 and 0.8% THC and between 10 and 20% CBD, had to be "washed" by solvents to reduce the THC levels to 0.2% or 0.3%. After reduction, they only contained 0.2% THC and 2-6% CBD. With the new regulation, consumers can enjoy the natural content of the flowers, which improves the effect, taste and aroma.

The private cultivation of cannabis seeds

The law now allows adults to grow up to four cannabis plants per household for their own use. Cultivation can take place in your own garden, balcony or terrace as long as it is not visible to the public. Unrestricted purchase of seeds, including from abroad or via the internet, is also allowed, and the government plans to control domestic distribution. A large selection of seeds and all other products you need for cultivation can be found in the Green Mile store (7a, grand rue, 6630 Wasserbillig) or in the online grow shop or seed shop !

Selling cannabis seeds and adjusting sentences

The new law has eased the penalties for possession of small amounts of cannabis and paved the way for the legalization of private cultivation and possession. Carrying more than three grams in public is still considered a criminal offense but fines have been significantly reduced.


Luxembourg's new cannabis reform is a milestone in European drug policy. The amendments underline a preventive and health-oriented strategy while strengthening measures against illicit drug trafficking. The natural pleasure opportunities offered by raising the THC limit are sure to positively impact the cannabis landscape.
