Thailand focuses on medical tourism

Published on : Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Few of you might still remember my story on the lengthy 31 steps process of obtaining a visa, and 90 days of pre-paid accommodation also required were a bit de-motivating for some. With Tinder partnership, things got a little creative, and with few exceptions, have continued to be a struggle, in spite of the easing international visa requirements.

Now, many countries worldwide are moving towards legalizing cannabis’s growth and consumption, Thailand became one of these countries after approving the legalization of growing medical cannabis with specific standards and regulations. In south-east Asia, for medical purposes, Thailand is the only country to legalize growing cannabis. Also, it will introduce cannabis tours programs for International and domestic tourism.

In March 2019, Thailand legalised medicinal marijuana after the most recent elections. At their home, Thai citizens can now grow weed plants. For international distribution, Thailand medicinal cannabis manufacturers can produce over one million 10ml CBD and THC oil bottles.

Thailand is well-known for its gorgeous holiday destinations like other south-east Asian countries, and its harsh punishments related to drugs.

The recreational use of marijuana is still illegal with penalties in Thailand for tourists including up to 10 years in prison. With a prescription, tourists can gain access to medical marijuana by going through the proper channels.

Thailand’s tourism and sports minister, Pipat Ratchakitprakan, is encouraging “weed tourism” as a way to bring financial benefits outside of the manufacturing of cannabis. Building a “quality tourism” campaign aimed at Europeans and Americans to visit for “beaches, relaxation and medical marijuana”.
