The Importation of CBD Products into Canada

The import of CBD oil products to Canada is illegal. However, there are key exceptions that investors may want to keep in mind when evaluating the potential of the Canadian market.

Canada's government, headed by Prime Minister Trudeau, intends to legalize cannabis in July 2018. It's hard to tell what the final status of regulation will be and how that legalization might change…

In September of last year, Lift News reported on a response received from Health Canada regarding the potential for individual applications for import exceptions. Since this response, Charlotte's Web has begun shipping to Canada if the patient can receive this sort of exception from Health Canada. Notably, though, these exceptions are always evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and require significant input from physicians. This is clearly not the ideal environment for a thriving imported CBD industry.
