In May 2019 the Department of Health announced that cannabidiol (CBD), found in dagga, had been removed from South Africa’s list of highly-controlled drugs and could be sold legally.
Following the announcement, South African entrepreneurs jumped on the bandwagon as legal cannabis products gain traction. The presentation covered cannabidiol (CBD) and the law around it.
