What is CBD Oil?

Medication and side effects

Recorded seizures

Cannabidiol is the second most prevalent of the active ingredient of marijuana next to Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)- the main psychoactive cannabinoid of marijuana which causes mind-altering and euphoric effects. THC is a dangerous drug included in the 1971 United Nations Single Convention on Psychotropic Substances.

Clinical studies suggest that CBD has broad therapeutic value. CBD is known to be effective for seizure disorder and chronic pain. The cannabis oil may also be used to help improve sleep, and reduce anxiety and stress.

DDB chairman Catalino Cuy said Regulation 8 Series of 2019 only allows the importation of medicines containing dangerous drugs that are registered in other countries.

He said CBD oil or other raw materials for marijuana is banned in the Philippines and those found importing the items in the country could face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

Cuy clarified there is no effort on the part of the government to import CBD oil for medicinal purposes.

MANILA, Philippines — The Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) yesterday reminded the public that the marijuana derivative cannabidiol (CBD) is still prohibited in the country.

“That ingredient is still illegal,” Cuy said in a phone interview.
