WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?
Cannabinoids are a diverse class of pharmacologically active compounds that are structurally and biologically similar to the primary psychoactive compound derived from cannabis Sativa-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)1
There are 3 types of Cannabinoids: 1
- Endogenous: occur naturally/are constitutively produced in the bodies of humans and animals
- Plant-derived: occur exclusively in Cannabis plants. THC is the most well-known of the phytocannabinoids
- Synthetic: developed in laboratories and have chemical and structural similarities to endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids
THE EFFECTS OF CANNABINOIDS
- The effects of the cannabinoids are mediated through the cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2 1
- Several authors have described the ability of CB1 and CB2 agonists to reduce itch via activation of receptors present on cutaneous sensory nerve fibres1
- The therapeutic use of cannabis and cannabinoids is becoming increasingly common in the treatment of dermatologic conditions and inflammatory skin conditions such as: acne, pruritus; psoriasis; allergic contact and atopic dermatitis 1

Common Questions about cbd creams
What is CBD (cannabidiol)?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It is a naturally occurring substance that is used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it is not psychoactive. 1
Where does hemp oil come in?
The terms cannabis, marijuana, and hemp are usually all tossed around in relation to CBD. The plant Cannabis sativa has two primary species, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but there is a much higher percentage in hemp, which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to marijuana. When people talk about hemp oil, they are referring to oil extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant. There are no cannabinoids—CBD or THC—in hemp oil. This ingredient is packed with healthy fats and often appears in beauty products for its moisturizing benefits.1
Is CBD safe to use?
Yes, to date there is no evidence of any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.2
Will CBD get me high?
No. The cannabis plant is made up of two main players: CBD and THC. CBD is the nonpsychoactive portion of the plant, which means that you won’t have any effects like euphoria.1
Is CBD legal in South Africa?
The Minister of Health in South Africa on the 23rd May 2019, signed new legislation permitting the sale and distribution of low dose CBD products to the South African public. This gazette makes it officially legal for anyone, be they a registered pharmacist or a marijuana advocate, to sell any product or concoction containing CBD without needing a prescription from the buyer. This new exemption is a significant change to the original restrictions of dagga-derived medicine in South Africa, which only allowed a select number of registered people or companies legal access to sell and make such products. The exemption comes with two conditions however; firstly there is a maximum daily dose of 20 milligrams of CBD allowed, and CBD products cannot be advertised as a cure or treatment for any specific condition, but only as a way to relieve minor symptoms or for general health maintenance. 3,4
