Whether New Zealanders vote for the legalization of cannabis or not, in this year’s planned upcoming referendum, the purchase of edible cannabis products will not be allowed with immediate effect by the government.
To be considered by the public, the final legislation was published on the morning of Friday, May 1. The legislation outlines a phased approach regarding the hopeful legalization of the drug.
Specific cannabis products would be approved for production and sale, with immediate effect, under the new regime. The products are only fresh and dried cannabis, which includes plants and seeds.
A recommendation could later be given by a new Cannabis Regulatory Authority, regarding the approval of edible cannabis as well. However, beverages or novelty products, like gummy bears will not be included.
Specific requirements set by the government will have to be met by cannabis edibles, for approval. The requirements include the production in premises to be separate from conventional food production. Furthermore, if the edible cannabis products are found to be appealing to children and young citizens, the products would be banned.
Moreover, anyone found selling cannabis to under 20-year-old citizens, could potentially land the person in a four-year prison term. Furthermore, selling cannabis without a valid license can lead to a penalty of up to two years in jail. Breaching license provisions are one of the other offenses that carry hefty fines.
However, anyone under the age of 20, found to have possession of cannabis, will eventually get themselves a health-based response such as an education session. If not the session, they will have to pay a small fine, ensuring that they would not get a conviction.
One of the main psychoactive compounds found in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The levels of THC are subject to limits. Hence, products need to be labeled accurately with the amount of THC and CBD (cannabidiol).
Retailers will not be allowed to sell any cannabis or cannabis products at a reduced price, or to give the products away free of cost. Furthermore, the advertising of products would be banned.
The taxing of the products will be executed. Additionally, a levy, which will be similar to which is applied to alcohol and gambling, would fund services needed for the reduction in cannabis harm.
Details that were made public last year are confirmed in the bill. This includes an age limit along with a maximum purchase limit.
A person who is aged 20 or over, per day, will only be able to purchase up to 14 grams of dried cannabis (or its equivalent). The purchase can only be made from licensed outlets, and the consumption of cannabis will be allowed on private properties or at licensed venues only. Moreover, up to two plants will be allowed to be grown, with a maximum of four plants per household.
There have been updates regarding the draft Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill. The details included are –
- the way the cannabis market would work, along with the phased introduction of cannabis which will start with fresh and dried cannabis, cannabis plants and seeds
- how the regulation of consumption (of cannabis) premises would work
- the process of approval for cannabis products, along with the regulation regarding the prohibition of products
- the licensing requirements
- how the Bill proposes the reduction of the exposure of young people to cannabis; and
- infringements and penalties
A summary of the Bill will be found here.
The general public will be faced with a simple yes/no referendum question –
If it passes, the Parliament will put through the legislation to make it legalized. During the general election, the referendum will be one of the two taking place.

Good news for Sciatica patients: CBD oil relieves the pain
The recent studies on CBD oil have unfolded its utility in various fields of medicine. Researches on the effects of CBD oil on sciatica patients show that they can prove to be very useful in its treatment. The results have shown that the oil can work wonders to alleviate the Sciatica pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a severe pain caused by disruption in the sciatica nerve. Anything that disturbs the nerve results in extreme and sometimes, unbearable pain.
Sciatica is a nerve that starts at the lower back and extends through the hips and legs to the toes. It sends messages from the brain to the legs via spinal cord. Since, it is a long nerve, patients usually complain of the pain at the lower back, hips, legs and heels.
A compression on the Sciatica causes this severe pain. The major causes of compression are a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine.
What is CBD oil
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is derived from the Marijuana plant. It relieves the pain without causing any psychoactive or mind-altering effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD powder from the marijuana plant. Coconut or olive oil is mixed in it for better application.
The recent researches on CBD oil have revealed its anti-seizure, neuroprotective and pain relieving properties. Due to its wondrous effects on human body, many celebrities advocate for CBD.
Utility of CBD oil for Sciatica patients
CBD oil works by increasing the number of pain modulators that stimulate a response to the pain. Our mind has cannabinoid receptors that modulate the pathways that stimulate a response to the pain and negative emotions.
As sciatica pain arises, the CBD oil applied on the respective part works to reach the brain in order to stimulate a faster response to the pain.
While the Sciatica is a very painful condition, it is mostly treatable with medicines. However, most pain relievers have side effects that cause harm in the long run. In contrast, CBD oil works naturally to enhance the receptors with minimum side effects.
Best CBD oil to relieve Sciatica
Every person’s reaction to different types of CBD oil varies from the other. One cannot say with surety, since what works for some might not work for the others. This is primarily because every person has a different set of genetics, general health and tolerance.
Natural and organic remedies take time to show their reaction. While CBD takes some time to relieve the pain, it is undoubtedly one of the harmless ways to do so.
CBD oil works best when used with the consultation of a doctor. Before buying, one should make sure that the oil contains laboratory verified ingredients.
