Health Canada Fact Sheet: “All About Cannabidiol”

March 15, 2019

Over the past months, Health Canada has received a large number of questions regarding the regulation of Cannabidiol (CBD).
In response, a 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 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
The fact sheet clarifies if someone can market veterinary health products and pet food containing CBD at this time. The answer is no. Please read the fact sheet for details.
In the coming months, Health Canada will publish information about CBD on its website.
