What you should know about CBD oil? Benefits, side effects, and legality:

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is an extract derived from Cannabis sativa (marijuana plant). CBD oil contains only CBD as the active ingredient after excluding tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] or terpenes. It does not have the same psychoactivity but becomes an effective sedative and hallucinogenic substance, an eminent cure for relieving pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs. The oil is made from the CBD extract of the cannabis plant and further diluting it with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil. Due to its therapeutic benefit, CBD is gaining momentum in the health sciences in order to ease chronic pain and anxiety.

If CBD oil is illegal, how is it being sold online?

Ever since reports emerged that actress Rhea Chakraborty administered drugs, especially cannabidiol (CBD) oil, to her late boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput without his knowledge and consent, people have been wondering if CBD oil is legal in India and if not, then how is it being sold online. Below are the answers to these queries:

India, under Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (SCND), an international treaty, to which it is a signatory, and under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act, has banned recreational use of cannabis and its products. It must be noted that both the instruments define ‘cannabis’ as the flowering or fruiting tops of the cannabis plant also known as cannabis sativa or marijuana; leaves and seeds of the plant have been excluded from their purview, keeping in mind the plant’s medicinal uses and India’s social and religious customs (consumption of bhaang).
