And with all the hype surrounding CBD, with a buzz in the air about how beneficial it is for a wide variety of illnesses and conditions, people are wanting to know if it’s ok to receive their holistic medicine via mail. Obviously mailing cannabis flowers or oils is illegal as THC remains fully prohibited. However, when the CBD element is extracted, as it has no heady effect at all, it is totally legal in countries such as the Switzerland and the UK, among many others.
Hi Jonathan, as far as I understand CBD is in a gray area in Germany right now, meaning that although cannabis/cbd is technically illegal, the authorities do not care if you use small amounts. This means that it’s fairly safe to import CBD products and they won’t be seized. Sale is a more difficult question; I know some people buy CBD products from physical shops in Germany without a prescription but the law around that is confusing.
CBD has been in the news before, as a possible treatment for epilepsy. Research is still in its early days. Researchers are testing how much CBD is able to reduce the number of seizures in people with epilepsy, as well as how safe it is. The American Epilepsy Society states that cannabidiol research offers hope for seizure disorders, and that research is currently being conducted to better understand safe use.
If you’re dealing with depression, whether or not its related to your weight issues, working out and eating better are certainly ways to improve your mood. If you need an extra lift to get out of that rut, CBD is a known anti-depressant. While it relieves pain and inflammation, it can also relieve anxiety and help you see the brighter side of things.
Palmetto Harmony’s backstory is a poignant one, as founder Janel Ralph was spurred on to create the company to help her daughter Harmony, who suffers from an unusual genetic condition. However, according to the producer’s website, Harmony’s quality of life has greatly improved since she began taking CBD oil. And potential customers looking to see if their health could be changed for the better can select from Palmetto Harmony’s broad array of organic CBD oil-containing products, including the company’s flagship whole-plant extract and an unusual time-release patch. The brand’s Holy Cannacense cream, meanwhile, is among the most popular of its range; and also in demand is the acclaimed vape oil, which Palmetto Harmony claims “is best used to calm the mind and soothe inflammation.”
For example in Belgium it is most definitely not okay. Even medical use is illegal in Belgium, so your world map unfortunately is completely wrong at that point. Recently there is even a case with parents giving CBD oil to their child with epilepsy (and it helped by the way!), and they are being sued for it! And our “health minister” has absolutely no intention ta change that any time soon unfortunately….
I predict your mail WILL get through. My God I ordered expensive cannabis seeds from foreign countries ($500+ orders were common) when all this was illegal through the USPS YEARS AGO and not once did I ever lose my money nor not get my seeds. Same deal here. Just keep your mouth shut and wrap your package up good like YOU’d like to receive something through the mail if the shoe was on the other foot. And mail away.
Scott Shannon, MD, assistant clinical professor at the University of Colorado, recently sifted through patient charts from his four-doctor practice to document CBD’s effects on anxiety. His study, as yet unpublished, found “a fairly rapid decrease in anxiety scores that appears to persist for months,” he says. But he says he can’t discount a placebo effect, especially since “there’s a lot of hype right now.”
The effects of CBD on receptors in the immune system may help reduce overall inflammation in the body. In turn, CBD oil may offer benefits for acne management. A human study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigationfound that the oil prevented activity in sebaceous glands. These glands are responsible for producing sebum, a natural oily substance that hydrates the skin. Too much sebum, however, can lead to acne.
Success stories like Oliver’s are everywhere, but there’s not a lot of data to back up those results. That’s because CBD comes from cannabis and, like nearly all other parts of the plant, is categorized by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as a Schedule 1 drug—the most restrictive classification. (Others on that list: heroin, Ecstasy, and peyote.) This classification, which cannabis advocates have tried for years to change, keeps cannabis-derived products, including CBD, from being properly studied in the U.S.
However, keep in mind there is some risk involved because it’s still possible to have your shipment confiscated by customs. Much like the case of bringing CBD by plane, your ability to have CBD products shipped to your doorstep will depend on how strict your country is with CBD/cannabis, and on the knowledge of the particular agent checking your shipment.
