Healthy Care Hemp Seed Oil 1000mg 90 Capsules
CBD oil has been gaining traction in the health world for quite some time. Why? Because there’s an array of claims and supposed benefits – including its ability to help with things like seizures and pain relief. You can take CBD oil orally via capsules, it can be added to drinks and baked goods, or you can swallow it directly by placing a drop of the oil under your tongue.
If you are keen to learn more or you’re interested in how you can access CBD oil in Australia, this is the guide for you. Here's everything you need to know.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa. It’s not psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t get you "high". It’s made by extracting from the plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil.
As of now, you can’t buy CBD oil over the counter. Cannabis oil is legal in Australia, but only under special circumstances. The Australian government currently runs the Special Access Scheme (SAS) and this is used to determine who is allowed access to medical marijuana. At this stage, there are approved therapeutic uses, in particular if you are looking to treat seizures. But unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed. To see if you qualify, you will have to go through the process of documents and whatever else may be necessary.
Once you have a valid prescription, you can get your CBD oil through a pharmacy. Keep in mind, both the process and the final subscription can be expensive. So, that’s definitely something to keep in mind.
There are ways that you can purchase CBD oil online. But remember, if you choose to shop with an unauthorised retailer, there could be discrepancies in the quality of your product. There are currently no standardised global regulations for producing, testing or even labelling CBD products so it's definitely something to think about.
Although if you live in Australia's capital, things are much easier for you. Possessing and growing cannabis for personal use will become legal in the ACT. This law comes into effect on 31 January 2020.

If you were to search for the supposed benefits of CBD oil, the list would be quite long. But not all of these benefits are backed up by conclusive evidence and human testing. Even now, there are many studies underway to investigate the benefits of CBD oil. That’s why, if you’re looking at using it as a treatment, take into account the level of research and evidence and consult your GP for more information. Below, we’ve listed the most popular uses for CBD oil that are backed by studies and medical professionals.

Wondering on some alternatives to CBD oil? Whether you were denied access or are keen to try out some other options first, you may want to consider hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed and CBD oils come from the same plant, but the difference comes down to the exact part of the plant. Hemp seed oil is made from the seeds, whereas the CBD oil comes from the flowers and leaves. The benefits may not be the same – hemp seed oil doesn’t really assist with aches and pains. But, there’s still plenty of goodness that you can take advantage of!

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
