The South African Department of Health has quietly rescheduled Cannabidiol aka CBD to a Schedule 6 substance on the 6th July 2017 and appeared in the government gazette dated 28/07/2017.
Cannabidiol also known as CBD is just 1 of 113 Cannabinoids found in dagga.
MEDICINES AND RELATED SUBSTANCES ACT, 1965 (ACT No. 101 OF 1965) SCHEDULES
The Minister of Health has, in terms of section 22A(2) of the Medicines and Related Substances Act, 1965 (Act No. 101 of 1965), on the recommendation of the Medicines Control Council, made and updated the Schedules in the Schedule.
Browsing through the pdf under the Schedule 6 substances there is simply one line, “Cannabidiol, when intended for therapeutic purposes”. Page 27 of 31 (52).
The list of CBD benefits continues to grow as more more research is authorized and produced.
CBD does not appear to have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by THC in Cannabis, but may have effects on anxiety and an anti-psychotic effect.
Both compounds have important health benefits: THC has antispasmodic, analgesic, anti-tremor, anti-inflammatory, appetite stimulating and anti-emetic properties, and CBD has anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antipsychotic, antioxidant, neuroprotective and immunomodulatory effects.
There are a lot of South Africans who are buying and using CBD Oil to use as a dietary supplement and to treat ADHD, breast cancer, cervical cancer and epilepsy to name but a few.
Last year a research study on the effects of CBD on cervical cancer was funded by the South African Medical Research Council, you can view that study by clicking here.
You can view the information for yourself by visiting the Government Gazette.
