Interested in getting cannabis oil

| 06/09/2017 | 13 Comments

The FDA just admitted cannabidiol (CBD) is beneficial and it is legal in the US to sell and ship cannabis oil containing CBD. Does anyone on the island sell it? If not, would Cayman customs allow it to be imported?


Auntie’s answer: A related question has come up before concerning insurance for treatment with CBD (see Patient looking for CINICO to cover cannabis oil). I recommend you take a look at that column and check the included link to a CNS story on a local hospital dispensing the oil.

To summarise, though, physician-selected patients who live in Cayman can get prescriptions for the oil, which is being manufactured in Canada by an authorised licensed producer of prescription-grade cannabis oil and distributed by a Caribbean company.

The prescribing of the oil is in its initial stages in Cayman and there is a limited supply. But you can’t import it on your own and need to have a doctor sign off on it for your use here.

    Snake oil. Recent studies have all pointed to cannabis oil having no therapeutic benefit.

    THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol ) and CBD (Cannabidiol) are the two best-known cannabinoids.

    CBD Oils do not contain THC. CBD oil is legally available. Just go online or to a store and buy it.

    Marijuana oil – THC Oil and Cannabis oil. Three names that in most cases refer to the same product. Marijuana oil is made from (medicinal) marijuana (as the word already suggests) and the oil therefore contains THC. Marijuana oil is NOT legal to buy.

    Both THC and CBD oils are used for medicinal purposes.

    CBD is legal within the EU and the USA.

    The question remains: Can one purchase CBD oil that contains no THC and bring to the CI or import via a mail order? This has nothing to do with Cinico or doctors or prescriptions. It is sold as over the counter supplement in Europe and the USA.

        The only snake oil on this island is what your preachers sell you on the weekend at church. False promises and exaggerated claims…

    Some doctors will prescribe and others will not even entertain the conversation and quickly force dangerous pharmaceuticals down your throat. Thankfully, my doctor is a believer of the medicinal cannabis oil and made it available for me as soon as it hit the shelves on island. The down side is that it is a bit expensive, CI$320 for 60ml and the insurance companies are making you jump through hoops and hurdles to have this medication covered, yet there is no questions asked to cover opiates. If you have Cayman First for insurance, you can forget having it covered.
