Try the Best South African Cannabis Skin Cream on the Market!

It is time to try the best South African skin cream on the market – which happens to be a cannabis balm and a natural therapy at that. Exactly a year ago, on 6 July 2017, the South African Minister of Health gazetted Cannabidiol (CBD) as a Schedule 6 drug. Only 5 days later, it was rescheduled as a Schedule 4 drug b the Medicines Control Council. For all South Africans, this means that they can try the best skin cream on the market if they get a prescription. Schedule 4 Drugs Need a Prescription This means they have a health issue which could be pain, swollen joints, muscle cramps or other skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne. Then they go to the doctor and get a prescription to be allowed to take CBD. This cannabis chemical compound is free of side effects but has powerful healing qualities. Its sister cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive so needs to be better regulated. Schedule 4 drugs can be only taken if there is a prescription to treat chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and bacterial infections. The patient must first go to the doctor to get the go ahead to […]

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 […]

Can Children Safely Take Cannabis Oil?

Thinking about children and cannabis is a frightening thought because we are conditioned to assume that cannabis is a drug that alters the mind and causes addiction. But we know that children can safely take cannabis oil when it comprises cannabidiol (CBD), or a blend of CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). You see, cannabis oil is a natural therapy which does not have the same harmful side effects that the usual prescribed pharmaceuticals can have. CBD in Small Doses is Safe for Children If a child contracts a disease, or has a certain health condition, their doctors usually prescribe drugs from pharmaceutical companies which can harm the child both physiologically and mentally. THC may be a psychoactive compound but it is not life-threatening and, if taken in a blend with CBD, it is harmless and loses its psychoactive qualities. Children can safely take cannabis oil in small doses, specifically when the oil is mostly CBD. Children suffer all kinds of anxieties and conditions when they are in social and school situations – often these are “abnormal” environments where they cannot be themselves. Autism and ADHD are diagnosed more and more these days and children are having to take heavy drugs to […]
