Is Elixinol CBD Oil Legal in Australia? – Updated August 2017

Looks like we are in for a confusing couple of months. Up until recently CBD Oil and other hemp related products have been perfectly legal in Australia. Certainly they were a little hard to come by but you could buy them from a few websites and from a handful of locally owned operations.

Elixinol was one product that was fairly easy to obtain from a couple of sites, one being the good folks over at Hemp Healing. Looks like all that could be about to change…

Looks like the cronies in government are making a push to make CBD illegal and impossible to obtain for those that want or need it. This makes me incredibly sad 🙁 . This little website receives dozens of emails from people who generally need this product. Many of them have serious illnesses or loved ones with serious illnesses who really need access to all the benefits Elixinol and products like it can bring.

Right now it looks like we’ll be OK until the end of October 2017, that’s when the rules change.  You can read the nitty gritty and all the details here:

The good news is the debate is still open and there’s a chance this will be reversed before the deadline. I  really hope so because, as I said, I’ve already received emails from people in Australia that this product has helped.

    Can you please confirm whether cbd hemp oil is still legal in Australia or will be unavailable after 31st October?

      Hiya Jenifer – at the moment it looks like CBD Oil will not be available in Australia from October. This, in my opinion, is a huge disappointment and a decision I hope gets reversed sooner rather than later. I am working on an updated article for this and will publish it very soon. It takes time to filter through all the information as there is very little clear and concise stuff out there. Stay tuned 🙂

    What’s the best site to look at for current info. I’m in USA now and want to send some home to Adelaide.

      You will have to do some searching around for that at the moment Rebecca. I know that CBD oil is now illegal here in Australia. You might be able to get something passed customs if you ship it but you’d be breaking the law if you do it. Doesn’t mean it won’t work though but I’m not advising it 😉

    What was the results on Hemp seed oil being available in Australia?

    • elixinolwp November 8, 2017 at 3:32 am - Reply

      Unfortunately CBD and Hemp oil is now not available in Australia as of October. I am working on sifting through all the data and providing an updated article. It is quite confusing and taking me sometime. Please check back or sign up on the homepage with your email address for an update soon.

    Hemp seed oil is perfectly legal. You can find it at almost any wholefoods. Even Thomas Dux sells it and they’re a part of Woolworths now. No laws against hemp seed oil

    Thank you so much and please keep us updated. I moved to Australia from America the last day of October and am in desperate need of CBD oil for my fibromyalgia. I feel completely lost that I can’t get it here and I don’t know what to do.

    Hi! Is there any option in the meanwhile to get cbd oil in Australia? Coming weekend is Hemp Expo in Melbourne and I will go there, See what they have to tell.
    Thanks. Tina

    Hello. Are CBD creams for external use legal or not? Thanks

    • elixinolwp December 11, 2017 at 10:07 pm - Reply

      That all depends on which country you live in. I’m assuming Australia for my response and unfortunately no. CBD of any kind is now illegal in this country. A load of crap isnt it?

      • Amy December 21, 2017 at 11:10 pm - Reply

        Has this changed for Australia in the last few weeks as I am being told that it IS legal in Australia

    Hey Just wanted to say thankyou for doing the hard yards on going through the legalese BS so we understand the situation.

    I would love to sell body products with CBD on my site as it is so ridiculous that you can’t here. It is everywhere in the USA. So thanks for doing the hard work for us and then sharing. Blessings to you. And yes so many people can be helped by this oil in their health.

          Unfortunately not! Even zero THC CBD oil is now illegal in Australia. It’s a real shame but there are avenues to obtain it legally through prescription. Please contact me by email if you are interested.

    Thank you for summarising the legal status of CBD Oil. Are there any loopholes when it is not for human consumption / use? Such as equine? I’ve heard of great benefits when used for horses with certain conditions but I’m not sure whether there is a blanket ban on CBD products or just those for human consumption..

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    I have been importing and using CBD oil also, as a food, low THC hemp oil is apparently legal? It is very confusing!!

    • elixinolwp January 14, 2018 at 10:02 pm - Reply

      It is very confusing. Yes, ‘Hemp Oil’ is legal but CBD oil is not. To be honest I am unable to determine exactly what this means myself.

    It’s a lame Government enforcing lame laws designed to keep people “In THE SYSTEM.” It’s got to change soon. CBD oil is great.It helps my pain, my elderly mum cares for a handicapped daughter and it helps her stress and the Government TGA is EVIL!!!

    My dear brothers and sisters,my name is Thomas Karol , this testimony is all about Dr. Brown Nelson the herbal doctor that saved my husband life by helping me in curing my husband cancer disease after i have spend all my life savings looking for cure from fake spell casters who claimed to be real and they scammed away my money without helping. I also tried medications from different hospital and clinic but all seems to be in vain until the day i contacted Dr. Brown Nelson as my last hope, He assured me that he is going to help me and i am glad that today my husband is cured due to the help of Dr. Brown Nelson cannabis oil, if you are reading this and you needs cure to any type of illness and have also been scammed by other fake spell casters, worry no more, here is the ultimate solution to your problem, contact him now through his email: (

    Thank you all on this page.
