Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from cannabis, and may contain a small amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is a haraam intoxicant.

If it is proven that CBD is not harmful and does not contain THC, or that it contains a small amount that is completely absorbed and no trace of it can be detected, then there is nothing wrong with consuming it.

End quote from Mughni al-Muhtaaj (5/518).

If it is actually added, then the sin is on the one who adds it. Then we should look at the food or medicine: if the amount of intoxicant is so small that it is completely absorbed and no trace of it can be detected, and it will not cause intoxication in the one who eats or drinks a lot of that food or medicine, then there is nothing wrong with consuming it.

Anti-emetic: Cannabidiol has been shown to decrease nausea and vomiting in case studies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you see CBD being sold a a ‘Tincture’ be very careful. Although these days the terms oil and tincture do get used interchangeably you need to be aware that some tinctures are produced differently to oils.

The Confusion

So, there are two main types of CBD oil available. One which contains THC – a product that can get you high – and one without. Currently in the UK any CBD oil containing THC is banned thus, more and more people over here, including researchers and healthcare providers, are claiming that CBD is entirely safe to use, by both adults and children so we will focus on the non-THC, legal form of CBD oil.

The law was changed to recognise CBD, one of the components of cannabis, as a medicine.

Neuroprotectant / Anti-oxidant: Research also shows Cannabidiol is an anti-oxident and has neuroprotective properties that may help prevent or treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.
