What are the consequences if you buy products with too high THC content?

In simple terms: It will depend on the product type and the strength of the content, but a bottle for personal consumption would in the worst-case scenario be a fine of up to €100. Malta created the “The Authority for the Responsible Use of Cannabis (‘ARUC’)” in 2021 as a system to ensure a responsible consumption of cannabis. It focuses on less punishment and more on better health and social support. It regulates social clubs, which license non-profit organizations that can grow and distribute cannabis to members located in Malta. The Malta government is therefore the first government in the European Union to create a framework that through education and regulation tries to advance public health and safety.

Worth to know as a consumer:

  • CBD is legal if the content is under 0.3% THC
  • Malta is a progressive country with a legal framework for cannabis products.
  • Always get a product certificate for your legal and health safety.


In Malta, CBD is legal provided the THC content is below 0.3%, aligning with European laws. If you are unsure about the THC level of your product, obtaining a laboratory report from the supplier is recommended. Raw Organics ensures all its products comply with these regulations, offering accessible reports for our customers' peace of mind. The consequences for exceeding the THC limit can result in fines, but Malta's approach, led by “The Authority for the Responsible Use of Cannabis (‘ARUC’),” is more focused on responsible use and health support. Selling CBD in Malta requires specific licensing and adherence to strict labeling regulations.
