Regarding regulated components and HHCH

November 21st, 2023 Thank you for your continued support of our raw materials and products. We have confirmed that the CBD raw materials and products we provide do not contain any illegal substances such as THC, which is regulated in Japan, in accordance with current legal restrictions. Furthermore, we have received confirmation from the manufacturer that the illegal ingredients newly designated as of 10 September this year have also been removed at the same time as the THC is removed during the raw material extraction stage and are undetectable. We are committed to the healthy development of the cannabinoid industry and have expressed our deep concern about recent cases in Japan related to synthetic cannabinoids such as HHCH, and have called for their immediate regulation. While urging the government to act swiftly and decisively against the distribution of such dangerous synthetic compounds by strengthening regulations and making public safety a top priority, we emphasise that CBD is different from these substances. Our CBD raw materials also do not contain any THCH, the ingredient used to produce HHCH. Our CBD raw materials are produced and manufactured in Switzerland or in the USA and only mature stems of cannabis grass are used. In this regard, we have officially cleared imports after confirmation by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in accordance with Japanese domestic laws and regulations. No genetic modification techniques or radioactive sterilisation are used in the production process or in the manufacture of the raw materials, ensuring quality and safety. Finally, we promise to continue to ensure the safety and reliability of our cannabinoid products and to continue to provide reliable products with improved quality and guaranteed proper distribution so that consumers can use our products with confidence. Kitchodo Co., Ltd. CEO Alexander George Muller
