How do I get CBD oil in Saskatchewan?

CBD oil is a cannabis extract which is made using a compound in the cannabis plant known as cannabidiol or CBD. CBD is not psychoactive when it is absorbed through the endocannabinoid system, meaning, that CBD does not produce the ‘high’ or euphoric feeling that is commonly associated with cannabis. The high feeling is believed to be attributed to a different compound found in the cannabis plant known THC. CBD has variety medical and therapeutic properties and is known to treat a wide variety of conditions such as epilepsydepressionanxiety to name a few.

In order to gain access to CBD oil in Saskatchewan, it is recommended that you be prescribed by a physician or qualified healthcare practitioner. This is due to the Licensed Producers reserving a large proportion of their CBD products strictly for medical cannabis patients. Once you have a prescription, you can order your CBD oil, or capsules, directly from your Licensed Producer and have the medication delivered right to your door.

Saskatchewan Cannabis Laws

On top of the Canadian Cannabis Laws listed in the Cannabis Act, provinces also have their own laws and regulations to help govern the productions, usage, distribution, packaging, and sales of cannabis and cannabis-related products and services within their province. 

In Saskatchewan, the provincial government created their policies in order to work to protect the public’s safety and health called Saskatchewan’s Cannabis Framework. They are also working to eliminate the black market while ensuring their citizens make informed decisions and are educated. 

Consumption and Possession of Cannabis in Saskatchewan

In line with the legal drinking and tobacco purchase age in Saskatchewan, the minimum age for cannabis purchases and consumption is set at 19 years old. Anyone 19 or older is allowed to possess up to 30 grams of cannabis in public if they do not have a medical cannabis prescription. Public cannabis consumption is prohibited across the province. Cannabis can be consumed in private residences and homes.

Driving under the influence of any type is illegal. If driving under the influence of cannabis or consuming cannabis in a vehicle, one will face steep fines possibly jail time. When driving or transporting cannabis in Saskatchewan, it must be sealed in its original sealed packaging, within the legal limit amount, and out of reach of the driver and passengers. 

Cannabis consumption in the workplace has not changed since legalization and all employees must be aware of their employer’s drug & alcohol policies.

About Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan is a prairie province, and the only province in Canada that doesn’t have natural borders (such as rivers, mountain ranges, etc.).

Nearly 10% of Saskatchewan is comprised of freshwater lakes and rivers, and because of its geographical makeup, it has some of the widest ranging seasonal temperatures in Canada, including winters reaching -45 degrees and summers recording some of the hottest temperatures ever in Canada.

Saskatchewan’s capital is Regina, but it’s the largest city is Saskatoon, with a population of 250,000. Interestingly, Saskatchewan is the largest exporter of mustard seeds in the entire world, and their oil production is also a major export of the province as well.
