Where to Buy CBD Oil
in New Zealand
As of April 1st 2020, CBD oil is prescription only in New Zealand. You need a medical professional to write you a prescription and then have them or a pharmacy source you the CBD oil. We hope to see this change in the future to match global trends with many other countries allowing CBD to be purchased online and over the counter but for now you can only get it legally through a doctors prescription.

So how can I get CBD Oil?
From a Pharmacy in NZ – Currently, CBD oil is prescription only. This means you need to see a doctor that is willing to write you a prescription in order to get hold of CBD legally. Note, not all doctors are willing to prescribe CBD oil. If they haven’t yet taken the time to learn about it and understand what CBD is and what it does, they are unlikely to just write you a prescription. If your doctor wont write you a prescription or you’re looking for a doctor that will, contact us and we might know of one in your area we can recommend.
If you do obtain a prescription, any pharmacy can order in some CBD for you if they don’t have it on hand. However, this can be extremely expensive depending on the pharmacy’s mark up.
Have your Doctor Source it – A doctor may source CBD for patients under their care. They can either import it or buy it from a domestic supplier. Individuals cannot legally buy CBD online. By definition you may only import a product that has a CBD:THC ratio of 50:1 or greater so to avoid any confiscated product, stick with CBD Isolate for now.
Getting CBD during Lockdown – Some doctors are now doing tele-medicine consultations. Using online video calling, you can now get assessed for CBD and have it prescribed and couriered to you. Contact us if you need a recommendation.
