Methods of consumption

However, unlike the THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and there is no evidence of public health problems associated with it. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.

According to Section 2 of Republic Act 9165, or “The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002”, “People with legitimate medical needs are not prevented from being treated with adequate amounts of appropriate medications, which include the use of dangerous drugs”.

What is CBD Oil?

PDEA Director General Aaron N Aquino reiterated the warning after the increased trafficking of CBD oil using the mail and parcel services was recorded. CBD oil is also openly sold in online shopping platforms in the country.

Other than the treatment, the CBD oil can also cause unpleasant side effects, the most common include nausea, fatigue, and irritability. The cannabis oil can also cause dry mouth, low blood pressure, light headedness, and drowsiness.

To apply for the special permit, the patient needs to accomplish an application form from FDA, and submits letter from the prescribing doctor, medical abstract and the amount of the medical cannabis needed. All documents will be the subject of evaluation by the FDA.

“That ingredient is still illegal,” Cuy said in a phone interview.

DDB chairman Catalino Cuy said Regulation 8 Series of 2019 only allows the importation of medicines containing dangerous drugs that are registered in other countries.

The article mentioned that the DDB’s approval of a cannabis product for compassionate use could pave the way for CBD importation, subject to approval by the government.

MANILA, Philippines — The Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) yesterday reminded the public that the marijuana derivative cannabidiol (CBD) is still prohibited in the country.

He said CBD oil or other raw materials for marijuana is banned in the Philippines and those found importing the items in the country could face charges for violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act.

He issued the statement in response to an article from The STAR stating that Greenergy Holdings Inc. has acquired a majority stake in Yakuru Group Pty. Ltd. which recently introduced its line of CBD or medical mairjuana products in Australia.

Cuy clarified there is no effort on the part of the government to import CBD oil for medicinal purposes.
