Buying CBD oil online in Canada
Canada is on the brink of cannabis legalization, but you can already buy CBD Oil as long as you have a prescription. Based on a Canadian national poll almost five million Canadians use cannabis at least once a month. That number is expected to rise by 19% when cannabis is legalized. This is not surprising considering the health benefits of CBD oil.
Conditions that can be treated with cannabis oil
CBD oil is used to treat various conditions. The full list of conditions that can benefit from the patient use of CBD cannabis oil is long and would have to include more than 200 ailments. Some of the more common conditions treated with cannabis oil are the following:
- Chronic pain
- Persistent muscle spasms, including those associated with multiple sclerosis
- Seizures, including, but not limited to, those associated with epilepsy
- Severe nausea
- Any other chronic or persistent medical symptom that substantially limits the ability of the person to conduct one or more major life activities.
Athletes also starting to adopt CBD oil
Since mixed martial arts athlete Nick Diaz famously vaped CBD oil at the UFC 202 post-fight press conference many more athletes have admitted that they also see value in using CBD oil as part of recovery. CBD cannabis oil has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that can help athletes who are recovering from sports injuries. Minimizing pain and reducing inflammation with other pharmaceuticals can have severe negative side-effects that could cause an athlete to stay out of the competition even longer when recovering from an injury. CBD can effectively reduce inflammation and pain, causing it to be included as a treatment in sports medicine.
The World Anti-Doping Agency recently removed CBD cannabinoids from it’s prohibited substances list, a step very much in the right direction. This means that athletes can now breath easy and use CBD oils as part of their treatment and recovery when dealing with injuries. No doubt many Canadian sports stars will also start buying CBD oil online to use under prescription.

But you are not limited to just CBD oil, but any product that is CBD-only. This also includes edibles, drinks, creams or balms.
Most Canadians are eagerly awaiting legalization this year that will make the purchasing of CBD oil in Canada even easier and more obtainable to any Canadian. I for one can only hope that South Africa will follow suit soon.
