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.

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”.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

But unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. There was also no evidence of public health problems associated with its use, said the PDEA chief.

PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino said the agency has recorded an increased trafficking of CBD oil through mail and parcel services.

Clinical studies found that CBD is effective for seizure disorder and chronic pain. CBD oil may also be used to improve sleep and reduce anxiety and stress, according to Aquino.

Two consignees have been arrested.

Since February 2019, a total of 792 milliliters and 621 grams of CBD with THC contained in bottles, droppers, capsules, vape juice cartridges, and gummy candies, were intercepted in 14 mail and parcel interdiction operations in seaports and airports nationwide.

Cannabidiol is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of marijuana next to Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive cannabinoid of marijuana that causes mind-altering and euphoric effects.

Aquino advised the public to surrender any products containing CBD to the nearest PDEA regional offices.
