The Hemp Industry Act 2008 (the Act), allows the cultivation and supply of low THC hemp fibre and seed production in NSW, under controlled conditions.

It is the best product l have used, some l have tried from other sellers were terrible and certainty not worth the money. This Hemp Oil is miles above them.”
– Marg Walshaw, 17 June 2020 ( Hemp Oil in MCT (Coconut Oil) – no Turmeric )“I am onto my second bottle of the Hemp cream which I use on my arthritic fingers, feet and knees. I have experienced good results and quickly.
I prefer the Coconut based cream as it seems to spread better than the Lemon Mrytle.
I am still very active and prefer to use it whenever the pain occurs.
I am very impressed with the results.
Finally found something that actually works and quite inexpensive.”

“I’ve been taking this oil for fibromyalgia costochondritis and osteo arthritis only been on it a short time it seems to be helping relieve my pain very happy with it so far thank you black sheep farm finally something is working for my pain”
– Darlene Costello, 12 May 2020 ( Hemp Oil infused in Almond Oil with Turmeric) “I was a non believer of hemp oils, I thought it was just all a load of rubbish, but I was recommended the oil for a skin infection that after months on antibiotics would not go away. I thought I would try it as I had tried many ointments, creams and salts and it still would not clear. After about 3 days of taking the oil, my skin was less irritated and nearly cleared, I honestly did not think it would work.It has also settled my psoriasis, anxiety and pain from arthritis and simply changed my life.I am now converted and recommend the oil to everyone.”
Amanda, 2 May 2020 ( Hemp Oil infused in Almond Oil with Turmeric) “This oil is gold! I broke my ankle and on the way to the hospital all I took was this oil for the pain. In hospital they offered me endone and codeine which I refused as the oil and an icepack was all I needed. My husband couldn’t believe that this oil would relieve the pain. I have recommended this product to so many people. Thanks again Black Sheep Farm Oils”

The pain can be intolerable some days & “medical” pain relief just zonks me out . I have only tried the hemp oil for a few days now & already I can feel a huge difference in pain levels… they have genuinely gone from an 8 down to a 1……& I am now not zonked out like a zombie . I am using the oil in conjunction with the hemp/comfray/arnica cream & with such amazing results I have no intention of stopping. Thank you thank you thank you ……”
– Kaye, 7 Jan 2020“I have arthritis in my right hand that makes my day-to-day tasks a very painful affair. Since using Black Sheep Farm Hemp Cream (Comfrey & Arnica) my life is so much more comfortable. I simply rub a small amount into my nuckles every morning and half an hour later, my hand is brand new again and I can get on with my day pain free. I highly recommend this product for anybody who has aches and pains due to arthritis.

A 2017 report from the World Health Organization provides a long list of medical conditions for which CBD may have therapeutic benefits, however, more research is needed before making definitive conclusions.

Isolate is widely prescribed in Australia given the strict roadside drug testing regulations that do not accommodate for full spectrum CBD products and until recently, there were not many broad spectrum CBD oils available.

CBD products are not registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods. Therefore, doctors need to apply to the TGA via the Special Access Scheme (SAS) to obtain approval for each patient. Approval usually lasts for 12 months.

What Medical Conditions can be Treated with CBD oil?

No it isn’t. Although that doesn’t stop many Australians from buying CBD oil this way. Some products even contain “official” potency certificates. Such products have been proven to be low quality and inconsistent so sourcing CBD oil this way is often a waste of time and money (and also illegal!).

CBD is only one single atom arrangement away from being THC.

When comparing the price of CBD oils you need to calculate the amount of CBD in milligrams. For example a 50ml bottle of 10mg/ml CBD contains 500mg of CBD. A 10ml bottle of 100mg/ml CBD contains 1000mg. The 10ml bottle even though much smaller contains twice as much CBD as the larger bottle.

Hemp and CBD are not the same thing. Unfortunately, many unscrupulous marketers use the terms interchangeably to try and capitalizes on CBD’s popularity.

As of 2015 CBD oil is legal in Australia, as long as it contains at least 98% cannabidiol and 2% or less of other cannabinoids found in cannabis. When compared to a lot of other countries, like the US, Canada, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, UK, Netherlands, we’re quite behind.

So, what’s legally available in Australia?

“CBD got caught up in the whole medical cannabis legalisation thing that happened from late 2016,” Dr Iain explains. As part of that, there was a “torturous process” set up for Australians to access CBD, whereby you had to go through a doctor, hope said doctor is educated about CBD and is in favour of its use, then persuade them that CBD is right for you, then they would need to write a complicated application and send that off to Canberra to the TGA who would then decide either way.

As of 2020, out of the approvals issued in total in over three years, Dr Iain estimated that about 20,000 patients gained access legally (when you take into account the prescription renewals throughout that time). “And there’s probably 10 times more people — certainly from our surveys — that are accessing illicit cannabis and self-medicating.”
