The advent of whole plant CBD-rich oil as a grassroots therapeutic option has changed the national conversation about cannabis, nationally and globally.

It’s no longer a question of whether medical cannabis works – today the key question is how to use cannabis for maximum therapeutic benefit.

But most health professionals in South Africa have little experience in this area.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, CBD, is one of at least 113 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.

CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive effects such as those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and it may have a downregulating impact on disordered thinking and anxiety.

It is a 21-carbon terpenophenolic compound which is formed following decarboxylation from a cannabidiolic acid precursor, CBDa, although it can also be produced synthetically.

CBD can be converted to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) under experimental conditions; however, this does not appear to occur to any significant effect in patients undergoing CBD treatment.

In experimental models of abuse liability, CBD appears to have little effect on conditioned place preference or intracranial self-stimulation. In an animal drug discrimination model CBD failed to substitute for THC. In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.

CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials, with one pure CBD product (Epidiolex®) currently in Phase III trials. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for a number of other medical conditions.

There is unsanctioned medical use of CBD based products with oils, supplements, gums, and high concentration extracts available online for the treatment of many ailments.

CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients’ existing medications.  Several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product.

To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.

South Africans do buy CBD Oil online from a few unregistered self-appointed dispensaries.

Many are not aware that the CBD products they are consuming or promoted as safe by self-appointed online Medical Cannabis Dispensaries could possibly interact negatively with some prescribed pharmaceutical medication.

If you are wanting to buy CBD Oil in South Africa then we suggest you speak to your GP about prescribing you CBD legally.

  1. […] CBD oil has been made a Schedule 4 substance in South Africa which means that your doctor can legally prescribe it and you can legally use your CBD Oil as long as it was dispensed at pharmacy level. The problem is many people buy CBD oil online in South Africa from a self-appointed medical cannabis dispensary, of which there are many, and unfortunately these products do often also contain THC which will give a positive result for any drug test.
