What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is short for cannabidiol. This is a natural compound found in the cannabis plant, along with many other compounds such as THC. CBD oil doesn’t cause you to feel impaired or high but rather works alongside a natural hormonal system inside your body called the endocannabinoid system. It is thought that some people have a deficiency in this system and by correcting this, CBD oil has a positive effect.

We are strong believers that CBD oil and medicinal cannabis can help improve your health and wellbeing by reducing the symptoms of your condition(s).

Does CBD oil and medicinal cannabis work?

Medicinal cannabis can help you if your symptoms are not improving using conventional medications or you are experiencing side effects of the treatment. It can also help you if you prefer to use plant based medicines over pharmaceutical medications.  

Medicinal cannabis does not suit everyone and people react differently. We encourage you to try it and allow us to optimise a treatment plan for you to get you the most relief of symptoms as possible. 

Can medicinal cannabis help me?

CBD oil and medicinal cannabis can help a range of conditions, from pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, sleep, gastrointestinal problems and insomnia. CBD oil works on the body’s own cannabis hormonal system, called the endocannabinoid system, and supplements it. Humans have used medicinal cannabis for thousands of years to help in treating various medical conditions.

CBD oil can help promote a sense of calmness, relieves anxiety and reduces pain through its anti-inflammatory effects. THC oil is very helpful for sleeping / insomnia and for more severe pain symptoms.

Can I drive & work while using medicinal cannabis?

Yes you can, as long as you do not feel impaired. CBD oil is not psychoactive, meaning it does not affect how you think. When we use THC products, we ensure it is done in as low dose as possible to provide you the benefits without any side effects.

We have helped many Kiwis that are using medicinal cannabis daily and living busy lives with work and family comittments.

Will medicinal cannabis show up on a drug test?

Your use of CBD oil will not show up on a drug test as it contains very small trace amounts of THC. If you use a THC product, this will show up positive. 

You are entitled to use prescription medication and we can support you with your employer by providing letters of support and advocacy if required. We are here to help you in your journey.
