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 Nelson New Zealand (NZ)
The settlement of Nelson was originally planned by The New Zealand Company in London. They company intended to buy around 200,000 acres – 810 square kms – from the local Māori. It was planned to be divided into one thousand lots and sell (at a great profit) to people intending to settle. The Company had projected future profits to finance the free offered passage of artisans, laborers, and their families, and to construct public works. By September 1841 however, only about one-third of the lots had been sold. The Colony pushed ahead despite the setback and the land was surveyed by Frederick Tuckett.
Three ships, the Arrow, Whitby, and Will Watch, left London under Captain Arthur Wakefield. The settlers arrived in New Zealand to discover that the new Governor of the colony, William Hobson, would not allow them to secure land from the Māori or even decide where to situate the colony. After some delay, the Company was allowed to investigate the Tasman Bay area at the top of the South Island. The site now occupied by Nelson City was selected as it had the best harbour in the area. Less attractive was the fact that the area lacked suitable arable land. Nelson City stands right on the edge of a mountain range whilst the Waimea Plains constitute only about 60,000 acres, under a third of the area needed for the Company plans.
For the sum of for £800, The Company secured an undetermined area from the Māori that included Nelson, Waimea, Motueka, Riwaka and Whakapuaka thus allowing the settlement to begin. Lack of geographical definition provided a source for a great deal of future conflict. In the first week of November 1841 the three colony ships sailed into Nelson Haven. Three months later when the four initial immigrant ships – Fifeshire, Mary-Ann, Lord Auckland and Lloyds – arrived, they found the town already laid out with streets, some wooden houses, tents and rough sheds. The Company sent out 18 ships with 1052 men, 872 women and 1384 children over 18 months. however, fewer than ninety of the settlers had the capital to actually start as landowners.
The lack of land and capital affected the settlement and it entered a long period of relative depression. The laborers were forced to accept wage cuts, organised immigration stopped (until the 1850s) and by late of 1843, artisans and laborers began leaving Nelson. By 1846, around 25% of the immigrants had moved away.
As the pressure to find good farming land became intense The New Zealand Company tried to claim that they had purchased land to the south-east of Nelson in the broad, fertile plains of the Wairau Valley. The Māori owners were adamant that the Wairau Valley did not form part of the original land sale and made it clear they would vigorously resist any attempt by the settlers to occupy the area. The Nelson settlers, led by Arthur Wakefield and Henry Thompson, attempted to take the land by force and were met with the strong resistance promised by the owners which resulted in the deaths of 22 settlers during the conflict called the Wairau Affray. The Government inquiry that followed the failed land grab exonerated the Māori finding that the Nelson settlers had no legitimate claim to any land outside Tasman Bay. Fears of a Māori attack on Nelson lead to the formation of the Nelson Battalion of Militia in 1845.
