In South Africa it is now a grey area - not yet completely legalised, but allowed to be grown and used for one's own benefit. Many small concerns are making and selling the oil and the authorities are turning a blind eye during this period. The main problem I've encountered is the lack of regulation at this stage, making it nearly impossible to compare one product with another. For the most part there is nothing on a bottle to say what you are getting, how it has been processed, how strong it is and what the ratio is of CBD to THC. For me it is important to buy a well-made product with all the alcohol boiled off. I've managed to find one brand that details very carefully everything that is in it, however it didn't work for me. It made me a little sleepy but definitely didn't help my AS pain.
Spondyloarthropathy with symptoms of AS, Sjögrens and fibro. Previously took Celebrex, Methotrexate, Trepiline, Prednisone which seemed to trigger a flare and my illness became much worse. Symptoms now kept mostly under control with NSD, as well as cutting sugar, dairy and yeast and food intolerances. Mostly pain free now and all symptoms massively improved.
