Destroyed a huge cannabis plantation for CDB oil in Spain

A huge area of ​​agricultural land with cannabis plants has been discovered in Spain. The open-air plantation is located in the province of Navarre in northwestern Spain. A total of 415,000 plants were destroyed, which could have been sold for 30 million euros for processing into hash oil (CBD). Spain’s Guardia Civil estimates that the crop could have been worth 100 million euros after processing. CBD is a THC-free oil that causes people to be stoned, but it is still illegal in Spain.

Industrial use

The investigation began in the middle of last year when the agent discovered a large cannabis plantation. Police services in the towns of Artajona and Olite went to work and discovered an area of ​​67 hectares in the village. The person in charge of cultivation informed the agents that the goal was to use hemp for industrial use, for example to make packaging material.

The suspects set up a large industrial warehouse in the town of Artajona, which is equipped with a ventilation and temperature system for drying plants.


The man-made investment, as well as the final destination of these factories in countries like Switzerland or Italy, which are known for processing plants derived from CBD, have made him suspicious. When it turned out during the investigation that a truck loaded with dried grass was leaving for Italy, the cargo was seized.

Other plants that had not yet been collected were cut down and destroyed.

Three people were arrested.
