All About Cannabidiol

Over the past months, Health Canada has received a large number of questions regarding the regulation of Cannabidiol (CBD).

In response, the attached Fact Sheet entitled “All About Cannabidiol” was developed. It contains information about CBD in cannabis and hemp products under the Cannabis Act.

This Fact Sheet is intended to provide you with detailed information including:

  • How CBD is regulated in Canada
  • Who can grow cannabis plants containing CBD
  • How and where CBD products can be sold
  • Import and export of CBD products

In the coming months, we will publish information about CBD on the Health Canada website.
