Six Nations Police Services: Please be advised that individuals offering CBD oil or any other cannabis-based products for sale, are doing so illegally.
The Federal Cannabis Act creates a strict legal framework for controlling the production, distribution, sale and possession of cannabis.
CBD oil is made from the cannabis plant (including the hemp variety) and is captured under the definition of cannabis in the Federal Cannabis Act, as well as in Ontario’s Cannabis Control Act and the Cannabis License Act.
Any unlicensed retailer selling CBD oil or any other cannabis-based product such as seeds or edibles is illegal.
Strict Federal Safety and Quality Regulations protect public health and community safety. As such, retailers currently selling CBD oil or other cannabis-based products in their stores are required to immediately cease the sale of these products.
The Six Nations Police Service will continue to act by enforcing and prosecuting those involved in this illegal activity, to encourage compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
