We receive a lot of enquiries from people getting confused between the hemp seed oil products we sell and CBD oil.
As of the 1st of March 2021, CBD (cannabidiol) oil is a prescription only medicine in New Zealand. We are unable to sell CBD online and you are unable to legally purchase CBD online in New Zealand. The only legal way of obtaining CBD oil is through a doctors prescription.
If you find a New Zealand CBD oil product online, they cannot legally sell it or ship it, or it is not in fact a real CBD product.
Be careful for misleading products marketing hemp seed oil as CBD oil. While hemp seed oil can contain trace amounts of cannabinoids like CBD, this is not a CBD product. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds, CBD comes from the flower or bud.
If you want to read more about the difference between CBD oil and Hemp Seed Oil we covered it in a blog post here.
