CBD in Canada

In Canada, all phytocannabinoids are subject to the Cannabis Act and Regulations, which means that Health Canada regulates isolated CBD the same way as every other cannabinoid, including THC.

Activities with phytocannabinoids remain illegal unless authorized by Health Canada. This means that CBD and products containing CBD, including those derived from industrial hemp, are subject to all the rules and requirements applicable to Cannabis under the Cannabis Act and its regulations.
Health Canada oversees the production of cannabis products, including supervising the distribution and sale of Cannabis, including any CBD containing Cannabis products.

The Cannabis Act and Regulations place strict controls on the following activities for Cannabis (and industrial hemp):

  • Possession
  • Production
  • Distribution
  • Sale
