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 😉

      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.

    Thanks. Tina

      It’s proving to be very difficult Tina. There are options though and if you’d like more information please email me directly through the contact page.

      Let me know how the hemp expo goes. I am very interested in what you find.

    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?

    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.
