Abstract

The world scenario for the cultivation of Cannnabis Sativa L. shows a trend in recent years that is clearly on the rise. The growth of small, medium and large enterprises that cultivate and market products deriving from Cannnabis Sativa L. in European countries is also exponential. This trend also effects Italy, a country which in the past was interested in the cultivation of hemp but which, over the years, almost completely.There are several products find application in different industrial sectors. However, other aspects (scientific, regulatory, political, ethical, economic, environmental, etc.), as well as the "moral" question, must be evaluated.This paper takes into consideration some economic aspects and, in particular, the impacts on the economy, on the territory, on business involving the increasingly widespread use of this crop. The focus on this crop is closely linked to the evolution of legislation on the subject at both a European and national level, which will be extensively analysed in this paper. In order to define the question more clearly, the study has used a SWOT analysis that highlights the strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the cultivation of industrial hemp.
