Using Cannabis Oil at Home is Now Permitted in South Africa!

The good news that anyone can use and grow and own cannabis and cannabis oil in South Africa has caused a stir in the country this week. On Tuesday 18 September, the Constitutional Court ruled that using cannabis in private at home is not a criminal offense any more. Chief Justice Raymond Zondo said that the use, cultivation and possession of cannabis is legal when used privately at home. Owning Cannabis Oil is Now Legal Zondo did not clarify the boundaries for what being at home means, nor did he clarify the amount of cannabis a person could use, grow or own. Sections 4(b) and 5(b) of the Drugs Act, and Section 22A(9)(a)(i) of the Medicines Act were declared unconstitutional and invalid because such Acts made it illegal for adults to use or own cannabis in the privacy of their own home, for their own private use.  These acts therefore did not comply with the individual’s right to privacy as embedded in Section 14 of the Constitution. The World is Waking up to Legalising Cannabis Oil The new law allows anyone to use, grow and own cannabis at home. This includes cannabis products like cannabis oil. In addition, there is […]

Cannabis Oil Treats Narcolepsy, Sleep Apnea and Insomnia!

Did you know that cannabis oil treats narcolepsy, sleep apnea and insomnia? These are just some of the sleep issues that can be altered in a positive manner by a natural therapy called cannabis oil. And the most common cannabinoids used to treat these issues are cannabidiol (CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While CBD is harmless and non-psychoactive, THC has some side effects and is psychoactive. The right blend, however, of CBD and THC will cure any condition of the human spirit, mind and body. Cannabis Oil Treats Sleep Issues Cannabis oil can be a panacea for anything from the common cold to the worst cancer. You may be very pleased to hear that cannabis oil treats narcolepsy (extreme fatigue during waking hours), sleep apnea (air is obstructed when breathing at night) and insomnia (difficulty in falling asleep and staying asleep at night). If  you take a good dose of THC it will make you sleep. But it has side effects – it makes you high. If you take a good dose of CBD, it makes you sleep and with no side effects. If you take small doses of CBD throughout the day, it keeps you alert. The user must therefore […]

Cannabis Legislation in South Africa – What’s New?

There may be no new updates regarding cannabis legislation in South Africa, but the citizens themselves update themselves all the time. If you look closer, if you read between the lines, you will find that the state of limbo of South African cannabis legislation has started processes behind closed doors. Did you know that the country’s first medical cannabis dispensary has opened in Durban? Or that a coffee shop in upmarket Sandton is selling cannabis in its meals and as joints upstairs? When travellers come to sunny South Africa, they seem to know just where to source some of the best cannabis around – right here, in our streets, from our people! What is New Since the Cannabis Court Case? Just more than a year ago, the Western Cape High Court ruled that sections of the Drugs and Drug Trafficking Act, and the Medicines Act, were not legal anymore, in terms of the Constitution. This was as momentous judgement for cannabis legislation in South Africa as it meant that cannabis cannot be banned when grown, used or bought by adults for private home use. There will be no update to cannabis legislation until the Constitutional Court decides these Acts are […]

Medical CBD and Your Immune System – Boost It

Medical CBD and your immune system are the perfect jigsaw puzzle that fit together – so boost it. Boost your immune system with medical CBD today, whether you are already exceedingly healthy, or feeling a bit flat or have an illness or chronic disease. Sometimes we need to look a bit deeper than just using pharmaceutical drugs to “cure” our many maladies. Using pure plant extracts is the way to health. Eating pure plant products is the way to health. You can boost your immunity doing both of these – eat pure plants as food and consume pure plant extracts as medication. Cannabis is the right medication for all your health needs, if taken responsibly. We promote two main cannabinoids or chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant – cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are both magical natural therapies that can successfully treat pain and inflammation, nausea and vomiting, stress and anxiety and insomnia and energy levels. When you start to use medical CBD to boost your immune system, it is best to first understand what the immune system is exactly. What is the Immune System? The immune system is complex and intricate and a system within all of us […]
