What is Hemp CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) & what are its benefits?
Hemp / cannabis derived CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) is a powerful non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid (plant compound) found in varying amounts in Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Ruderalis and Cannabis Sativa. Cannabidiol has become known for its neuroprotective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties and benefits that extend to treating dozens of significant health issues.
Our growers have focussed on creating hybrid strains that are high in CBD but somewhat lower in THC, the compound that produces the ‘high’. The CBD Oil component accounts for at least 40% of the total cannabinoids extracted from the plant. CBD has proven to be effective as an alternative or complement to conventional drugs, treatments and therapies. CBD Oil can be used in all the following ways:

How to understand CBD Oil (Cannabidiol) product strength and calculate your CBD dosage
Use this equation to calculate product strength:
MG PER ML = (mg CBD) ÷ (ml container volume) >> e.g 750mg ÷ 30ml = 25mg per ml
Use this equation to calculate cost per ml
PRICE PER ML = (mg CBD) ÷ (unit price) >> e.g. 750mg ÷ $108 = $6.94 per mg
As a guide for dosage: 1 drop = .05ml / 20 drops = 1ml

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications – due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly a lack of psychoactivity (as is typically associated with ∆9-THC), and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions.

Is CBD legal in New Zealand? - 13 June 2019 NZ update
Can CBD oil products be imported into NZ?Whilst we cannot guarantee delivery without a prescription, we have been successfully shipping to NZ for several years with no customs seizures or delays that we are aware of. Some of our customers have provided prescriptions or letters to date but most have not. It is possible that NZ customs might seize your product - if this happens we understand that you would be notified by the department. This has not happened to any of our customers to date so far as we are aware so you should normally receive your CBD oil and other products in NZ in 2-3 weeks from when you order.
Our CBD products contain less than the NZ legal maximum of 2% THC at around 0.02%. The legal advice we have had from our NZ lawyer. is that (no or low THC) CBD products are technically legal in NZ with or without a prescription or doctors / practitioners letter; however we would recommend the former if possible. Patients are allowed to order & import up to 3 months of supply.
All the raw materials used by our manufacturers are grown on certified organic farms and is processed to ensure and maintain quality and integrity. Our products are manufactured in labs that have certification for the USA GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), and NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certification in keeping with the international standard for Global Food Safety (GFSI) Certification for the Processing Industry.
The below information is edited from the original article at NORML.ORG.NZ in August 2017..
NZ begins to open up to CBD reform
Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne announced Cannabidiol (CBD) will remain a controlled drug with restrictions expected to be lifted in September so that GPs and other doctors can prescribe CBD to patients without needing special approval.
As is widely known, CBD is not psychoactive in the way that THC is and helps people with a range of conditions. CBD can be made from legal hemp crops, and is available in many countries.
Despite CBD not being listed in the Misuse of Drugs Act, the NZ Ministry of Health still maintains CBD as a Class B1 controlled drug that requires special Ministerial approval under the 1977 Misuse of Drugs regulations.
Mr Dunne says the changes are “the culmination of a process which I began early this year after receiving independent advice from the Expert Advisory Committee on Drugs”. This was itself a result of Nelson lawyer Sue Grey’s threat of legal action against the Ministry of Health (supported by NORML).
NORML believes these changes will help some patients – eventually – but more could be done. CBD will remain a controlled drug – and that means a lot. Although it will be easier to prescribe CBD will remain a controlled drug with currently no approved products. For the present, manufacture in NZ will remain difficult if not impossible.
Misuse of Drugs Amendment Regulations 2017 for CBD:
- exempt CBD products with up to 2% of other cannabinoids usually found in cannabis from the requirement for Ministerial approval to prescribe;
- exempt pharmacies, medical practitioners, and wholesalers from the requirement to have an import licence for CBD products with up to 2% other cannabinoids;
- exempt CBD products with up to 2% other cannabinoids from the controlled drug records and stock keeping requirements;
- extend the allowable period of supply for CBD products with up to 2% other cannabinoids from one month to three;
- exempt CBD products with up to 2% other cannabinoids from the requirement to be prescribed on a triplicate form; and
- exempt specific controlled drugs that require refrigeration from the requirement to be stored in a safe in a pharmacy.
What does it mean?
CBD will remain a controlled drug, but will be easier to prescribe.
Doctors will be able to prescribe approved products (when and if any are approved), or unapproved products manufactured overseas.
Patients with prescriptions will be able to buy their own from overseas and have up to three month’s supply sent to New Zealand, or they can have their prescription filled locally if their prescriber, pharmacy or a pharmaceutical company brings it in for them (controlled drugs are not allowed to be stockpiled).
There will be a 2% tolerance for trace amounts of other cannabinoids, as this means that botanically-sourced (ie, natural) cannabis can be used rather than having to make CBD in a lab.
It will remain very difficult to register products made from cannabis plants. Controlled drugs can only be manufactured in NZ for research or study, not commercial purposes. Registering an approved product requires clinical trials, which could take years, and can only be conducted using GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified cannabis. Importing or distributing medical cannabis products requires permits which can only be obtained by research institutions or pharmaceutical companies.
Unapproved products will also need to be GMP-grade, or the prescribing doctor can expect close and ongoing scrutiny. For many doctors it will be too hard and too risky for them to prescribe unapproved products.
About Dunedin New Zealand (NZ)
Dunedin became the capital of the Otago Province (the region of New Zealand from the Waitaki south) in 1852. The discovery of gold in 1861 at Gabriel’s Gully, to the south-west, led to an influx of people. Dunedin become New Zealand’s first city by growth of population in 1865. New arrivals included many Irish, Italians, Lebanese, French, Germans, Jews and Chinese.
The Dunedin region became industrialised and consolidated with the Main South Line connecting the city with Christchurch in 1878 and Invercargill in 1879. In 1863 Otago Boys’ High School was founded. The Otago Museum opened in 1868 and the University of Otago, the oldest university in New Zealand, opened in 1869. Otago Girls’ High School was then established in 1871.
Dunedin had cable trams from 1881 through to 1957 making it home to both one of the first and last such systems in the world. The frozen meat industry started in the early 1880s and the first shipment of frozen meat left from Port Chalmers in 1882. This marked the beginning of national industry.
Following ten years of gold rushes the economy slowed, however, Julius Vogel’s immigration and development scheme attracted thousands to Dunedin and Otago before the recession set in again in the 1880s. After these periods of prosperity, many institutions and businesses were established. These included New Zealand’s first daily newspaper, art school, medical school and public art gallery the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. There was also a great architectural surge producing many beautiful and ornate buildings. Notable amongst these are R. A. Lawson’s First Church of Otago and Knox Church, and buildings by Maxwell Bury and F. W. Petre. The visual arts flourished and the city’s landscape and townscape were painted by George O’Brien (1821–1888). The 1890s saw the eco9nomy revived. Notable buildings like the Railway Station and Olveston were built. A surge in creativity in the visual arts was represented by G. P. Nerli and culminated in the career of Frances Hodgkins.
Dunedin was no longer the country’s biggest city by 1900 as influence and activity moved north to the other centers continuing for much of the following century. The university continued to expand despite this, and a student quarter was established. At this time many started to notice Dunedin’s gentle mellowing – its grand old buildings were aging; with writers like E. H. McCormick remarking on its atmosphere and charm. A new generation of artists like M. T. (Toss) Woollaston, Doris Lusk, Anne Hamblett, Patrick Hayman, and Colin McCahon (who met the young poet James K. Baxter in a central city studio) developed in the 1930s and early 1940s and soon represented the best of the country’s artistic talent. The Second World War caused this group of artists to disperse.
