Italcanapa Scarl was founded in 2018 by the will of 21 Aprotab farmers (Aprotab is an historical reality in the cultivation of tobacco) in order to drive the conversion to the green economy.
Italcanapa only uses hemp seeds of Cannabis sativa L. certified by the European Union, with THC content lower than 0.2%.
The 21 farms are located in Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and Veneto, with more than 1000 hectares (2740 acres) available for hemp growing.
Italcanapa farming approach is both innovative and natural, enhancing biodiversity and traditions by respecting the different soil characters of any production area. “Organic” techniques are eco-friendly: pesticides and herbicides are completely ruled out, having been replaced by organic and natural amendments.
Italacanapa offices are located in Arezzo, Tuscany, Via Oriana Fallaci n.7 “(formely Via Trasimeno)”
