Referred to as the “miracle oil”, cannabidiol, better known as CBD, is a therapeutic oil that through years of research has proven to have healing effects on a variety of medical conditions without causing unwanted side effects. CBD is a compound found in both hemp and cannabis and is usually administered orally under the tongue – its purpose is to boost the endocannabinoid system that is naturally found in the body. This “oil from heaven” does not contain the same compounds found in marijuana that is usually rolled and smoked for recreational reasons. Marijuana features two key compounds CBD and THC. CBD is thought of as the healing compound while THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, allows the body to experience a ‘high’ that most people associate with recreational users. These two compounds react with different receptors in the brain and in turn, produce different effects.

What has happened since legalisation in Malta?
Malta’s stance on CBD and its legalisation is not entirely clear. While The 2015 Drug Dependence Act provided the foundation for future use of medical-grade marijuana; the cultivation and dispensing of such a prescribed drug took quite a while to come into effect. A prescription for the drug can only be obtained from government-approved physicians and the cost was set at a far higher price to that of the street market value for ‘regular’ weed. 2018 saw an opportunity for the country to define itself as the ‘medical cannabis capital of Europe’ (as explained well at both cbd.mt and cbd.com.mt) and officially legalised medical marijuana with the Production of Cannabis for Medicinal and Research Purposes Act introduced to the public. While patients prescribed CBD in Malta have access to the treatment; the cost is not stable in the slightest. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is usually bought as a tincture and fetches around €70 per bottle for the top-grade stuff; but local authorities are talking about an increase in price that could adopt astronomical prices of €1,500 for the same amount and grade of the product. Ultimately; the product is available under government-approved physicians, at an astronomical cost with laws disallowing importation of the product into Malta. Not entirely revolutionary.

Will Malta legalise CBD for recreational use?
Legalisation of CBD oil for recreational use is yet a big question mark in Maltese society. While activists such as Releaf Malta push for the legalisation, education and regularisation of marijuana use in Malta. There are many who support the cause and hope that ‘self-medicating’ will be a possibility on local shores, but; the question remains… will recreational use of CBD cost the same as the medical grade? And will it only be available in oil form? What about THC rich products? Will they find their way to our culture in a legal and regularised way?

While the Medcann World Forum 2019 is set to take place in Malta at the Mediterranean Conference Centre from the 19th to 21st November, news and updates on the industry are scarce. The reasons for legalisation of CBD for medical marijuana in Malta are unclear; the benefits on the public could work wonders for anxiety, depression, chronic pain, degenerative diseases and a number of other conditions, the cost though, unattainable for the majority who need it.

  1. Just because you are in Malta doesn’t mean you can’t score some buds. If you are in search of quality weed and other stuffs from a local dealer then I recommend Adkin (localdeals112@gmail.com). He is a very convenient and reliable local plug. Have ordered from him 5 times and believe me or not, everything was perfect.

    You can also find him on telegram as: budkonnection

    1. I recommend too. He was of great help and sells the best stuffs at moderate prices.
      But his telegram username has been changed.

  2. Hey stoners, You may come from a country where weed is legal or at least decriminalized and like to have your “smoke”. Don’t even think about getting from the streets because the Cannabis laws here are still kind of harsh.

    Personally I recommend Biggie ( haha420kush@gmail.com ) a local here in Malta . He is such a reliable and convenient local plug. He is popularly known and highly recommended.

  3. OMG I remember Biggie, he was also our hook up in Malta. Calm dude and doesnt talk much. But yeah his weed is the best. He really made our stay in Malta worthwhile . He is the best if you are looking for a great time in Malta. You can now be reached through his new email address which is ** haha420kush@gmail.com **. I will recommend him to you.

  4. According to FDA, CBD oils are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease but finding the right CBD for you ensures that you are getting the highest-quality, safest, laboratory-tested cannabidiol products. Third-party CBD lab tests are conducted before products hit the market in order to verify the purity and quality. It’s being tested for potency, contamination, chemicals, heavy metals and microbials, to determine whether or not such contaminants exist.

    Make sure it’s third-party lab tested like CBD products available at https://biomdplus.com/cbd-oil-for-anxiety/

  5. At first I was extremely skeptical about emailing some dude named Biggie ( Haha420kush@gmail.com ) whom I got his contact from my cousin and arranging a deal for some quality weed and coke in Malta. I was not disappointed at all! BIGGIE IS AWESOME! He is all about the customer. He has someone meet you in a quiet (but really convenient) place. I messed up and was waiting at the wrong area. His guy waited for 20 minutes until he finally found me. And the weed is fucking awesome. If you need hook up, look no further. Biggie is your man.
