What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, or manufactured in a laboratory. One of hundreds of components in marijuana, CBD does not cause a “high” by itself. According to a report from the World Health Organization, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.

What are the benefits?

CBD has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, but the strongest scientific evidence is for its effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which typically don’t respond to antiseizure medications. In numerous studies, CBD was able to reduce the number of seizures, and, in some cases, stop them altogether.

Is it legal in South Africa?

In South Africa, Government Notice No. 756 of 2019 Medicines and Related Substances Act (101/1965) provided exclusion of certain preparations containing Cannabidiol from operation of certain provisions of the Act. CBD preparations, which are products containing less than 20 mg per daily dose, are now allowed to be sold and are exempt from the Schedules to the Medicines Act.
