Although it is legal to use dagga-derived CBD here's what you need to know
Government has made great strides in making products containing cannabis-derived compound Cannabidiol (CBD) more accessible to the public.
Webber Wentzel partner, lawyer Megan Adderley, speaks to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about the recent changes made by the Department of Health and the legalities for obtaining such products.
She says from 23 May 2019 a notice was published which exempt CBD from certain medical regulations.
This means it can be sold as over the counter drug as long as it meets certain pre-refinement requirements.Megan Adderley, Partner - Webber Wentzel
All products must contain a maximum daily dose of 20mg of CBD or less and the product must not claim that it cures any kind of disease and must be for general health enhancement.Megan Adderley, Partner - Webber Wentzel
Adderley says the problem is that many of the products currently sold by wellness shops exceed the required limit meaning that they require prescriptions.
She says those buying the products without prescriptions are breaking the law.
