What is CBD oil?
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, then mixed with a carrier oil to create CBD oil medical cannabis products. CBD doesn’t cause the ‘high’ associated with THC marijuana products. CBD offers health benefits for many illnesses and ailments and its use is supported by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. Medical marijuana CBD oil products include:
CBD isolate: CBD in a pure form that doesn’t contain other cannabis compounds. The leaves, flowers and stalk of the hemp plant are used to make CBD oil.
Full-spectrum CBD: Made from cannabis plant extracts that include essential oils and scented compounds. May contain up to 3% THC.
Broad-spectrum CBD: Containing several cannabinoids and compounds, typically without any THC.
Legal CBD in South Australia
Medical cannabis, including CBD oil, is available with a doctor’s prescription in South Australia and other Australian states and territories. However, some doctors are slow on the uptake in understanding the efficacy of medical marijuana products. If your regular doctor is unwilling to prescribe CBD oil, contact Cannatrek and we will put you in touch with a more progressive medical practitioner who can assist.
It’s worth understanding the difference between legal and illegal cannabis products. Cannatrek hemp oil products abide by strict quality standards overseen by regulatory authorities. The result is consistently high-quality cannabis medicine that Australians trust.
The benefits of CBD oil medical cannabis products
CBD oil products undergo stringent testing before being deemed safe to use. Here are just a few Cannatrek CBD oil health benefits supported by scientific evidence.
- 1. Pain Relief – Studies show that CBD can reduce chronic pain. CBD impacts endocannabinoid receptor activity for reducing inflammation and pain signals.
- 2. Reduce anxiety and depression – CBD oil for Adelaide patients is the natural alternative to addictive medicines. CBD acts on the brain’s receptors to help improve and regulate mood and behaviour.
- 3. Alleviate symptoms of cancer – CBD oil is well known for helping reduce cancer symptoms and side effects from cancer treatment, such as nausea, vomiting and pain.
- 4. May have neuroprotective properties – Research shows the ability of CBD to act on brain signaling systems, and could provide benefits for people with neurological disorders.
- 5. May reduce acne – With almost 10% of the Australian population suffering acne at some point, CBD oil is a game changer. CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties.
- 6. Heart health – Recent research has linked CBD with potential heart and circulatory system benefits, specifically the ability to lower high blood pressure.
Preliminary studies show positive CBD oil benefits for people suffering from multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, epilepsy, and many more medical conditions.
Side effects of cannabidiol CBD oil products
CBD is well tolerated and considered safe to use, although it can cause some adverse reactions. These include diarrhoea, fatigue, weight change, and appetite change. CBD is known to react with some medications. This is particularly important for medicines or supplements that have a ‘grapefruit warning’, as both grapefruit and CBD are known to interfere with certain enzymes in the body.
If you are uncertain about your medical status in relation to taking CBD oil or other medical marijuana products, speak to your medical practitioner.

- • The medical condition being treated
- • Your body weight
- • Your individual body chemistry
- • The concentration of CBD in the pill, drop, capsule, or gummy
Make sure you talk to your doctor about the appropriate dosage before commencing CBD oil treatment or using other medicinal cannabis products.
