Sale of CBD Oil and other cannabis products illegal

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.

  1. CBD products are not illegal in Canada. They do not have THC in them. They are not regulated in Canada like real Cannabis. CBD products are illegal in the USA on the Federal level but some states have decriminalized it.

  2. Now that’s just plain stupid. So much for the police actually knowing the law. If they do charge and arrest businesses who sell CBD products that are THC free, they better be prepared for the charges to get tossed out of court and possibly followed up by a lawsuit. CBD and CBD oil is legal in Canada and does not require any kind of license and is not regulated the way that Canabis/THC is. CBD products must not have any THC in it whatsoever, even a very small amount, otherwise it is subject to Canadian Cannabis Regulation and licensing under Health Canada and is subject to the criminal code for those that try to work outside of the Canadian legal framework.
