cbd oil from israel

Question
I am a Spanish citizen who lives in Israel for the past 5 years , and I would like to know where I can buy CBD oil in Israel . Is it legal to sell it in Israel ?
Thank you .

Answer
By law selling CBD oil or any CBD products is not legal in Israel .
According to the Israeli law, any substance that is produced from the Cannabis plant is illegal and therefore also CBD oil isn’t legal.
The Ministry of Health in Israel is leading a reform to allow the use and the selling of CBD products in Israel , but this reform is stuck because of the instability of the government and the coming elections.

Shipping CBD products to Israel

Most Israeli CBD consumers buy the CBD product they need from online CBD shops located outside Israel.

The cannabis industry in Israel is almost entirely being run by the government. Critics of this system would say that this inhibits innovation and access. This case would be a difficult one to make to people like Dr. Raphael Mechoulam. However, Israel’s medical marijuana system has been known to create wait times as long as multiple months. For an Israeli to obtain a medicinal marijuana recommendation from a doctor, they have to try traditional medicine as a treatment for one year. This has resulted in a low amount of medicinal marijuana patients. It is unclear how accessible CBD products have been made to the public through the country’s pharmacies.

Israel has been one of the leading countries in cannabis research. CBD’s three-dimensional structure was first identified in 1946 by an Israeli scientist, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam. He would later discover perhaps the most groundbreaking research in the history of cannabis by showing that CBD could possibly treat epilepsy.

Exporting CBD Oil

Israel hasn’t let their strict laws on how CBD is purchased to stop them from cashing in on the emerging market. Companies like Provacan are selling their CBD products online direct to the consumer, as long as they live in the UK.

Cannabis is treated like medicine in Israel. It is available in pharmacies, sold by a professional with a medical degree, the dosage is clear and is closely regulated by the Ministry of Health. The farms and production facilities are closely monitored as well.

Currently, the recreational use of all cannabis products is discouraged by the Israeli government. Requiring citizens to only be able to buy CBD oil in a pharmacy with a doctor’s recommendation. 2021 may change this approach.

What are the health benefits of CBD?

In contrast to CBD, the other major active compound in cannabis is THC. Although THC has medical uses, it is culturally significant as the thing that gets you “high” in cannabis. Cognitive changes after THC use include euphoria and elevated mood. As a medicine, THC is used to help appetite, muscle spasticity, pain, glaucoma, nausea and more.

“CBD” is short for Cannabidiol. It is a naturally occuring compound found in cannabis plants. CBD does not get you “high”. Instead, CBD is thought to be responsible for many of the therapeutic effects cannabis can have. These benefits include reducing anxiety, improving sleep quality, reducing pain and helping in health conditions such as epilepsy, fibromyalgia and more.
