CBD oil set to be legalised next year in the Falklands

Members of the Legislative Assembly have set out a timeline that will aim to legalise CBD oil in the Falklands by April 2022.

Also known as Cannabidiol, CBD oil is found in the cannabis plant. But unlike THC – the ingredient that makes cannabis users high – CBD has no psychoactive effect.

CBD oil is currently illegal to bring into or purchase in the Falkland Islands.

A political debate around potentially legalising the wellness product ignited this week when a question raised in Thursday’s Legislative Assembly asked what work is taking place to legalise the plant extract.

In the meeting of the Legislative Assembly, MLA Roger Spink explained that a paper is being prepared by the Attorney General to present to Executive Council in February next year, with a view – subject to February’s paper – of introducing new legislation in April.
