Mexico gets a bad rap when it comes to drugs.  We immediately think of the merciless cartels and notoriously corrupt police department.  Living in America, media trains us to believe in a river a Mexican drugs flowing north across the boarders.  However, recent policy changes are turning these preconceived notions on their heads.  Back in 2017, Mexico enacted a nationwide medical cannabis program.  In addition, the law permits CBD products with THC below 1% to be act as supplements. Thus allowing for addition to existing holistic treatments like other supplements, think Vitamin E/C/A.  Furthermore Mexico’s cannabis policy allows for the importing of CBD products across boarders.  Currently importing is still limited, but it’s better than nothing. These policies did not come out of nowhere, overnight.

Mexico’s CBD Laws – How two girls made history

Not unlike now famous families in America and the UK, a devastating form of childhood epilepsy is a major attention getter for CBD policy in Mexico.  This time, it’s two young girls, both suffering multiple seizures a day.  After petitioning the Health Department of Mexico, COFEPRIS, both girls’ families were granted permission to use US imported RSHO-x, a CBD extract for their children.  A year later, in a study conducting by the COFEPRIS of those with severe epilepsy, of those treated with CBD over 50% saw drastic seizure reduction, with 17% becoming seizure free altogether.

Mexico's CBD Laws
Currently the only permits for importing CBD are for RSHO-X hemp oil.

These findings are in keeping with the averages and test results provided by various studies regarding CBD as a treatment for epilepsy, including for drug Epidiolex, who recently gained approval in the United States from the FDA.

Mexico’s CBD Laws – The “New” Supplement

Despite the success of government sponsored studies in Mexico and the nationwide MMJ program, access to CBD remains limited.  That does not deter some from lobbying to fix this.  “Currently, Poway-based Medical Marijuana, Inc. is the only company from which Mexicans can get legal permits to import cannabidiol or CBD products with a doctor’s prescription. In 2016, it started a Mexican subsidiary, HempMeds Mexico, to lobby for broader medical marijuana regulations in the country.” reports the Voice of San Diego.

If Mexico can finalize its changes on CBD products, it could become a global leader for progress and widespread acceptance.  Whether or not it’s a tipping point for global policy is unclear, but it surely wouldn’t hurt the international cause.

    Hello my name is Thomas Karol , my husband was suffering from liver cancer, and the doctor’s told me that there is nothing they could do to save my beloved husband life. Then a friend told me about hemp oil , i told her that my husband liver cancer was in the last stage that i don’t think the hemp oil will be able to help, and she persuaded me to try, for the love of my husband, i decided to give it a try. I did some research and i found a doctor who helped me with the cannabis oil to cure my husband liver cancer and he assured me that after 3 months the liver cancer will be gone, and For the past one year my husband is perfectly okay and he is free from cancer, if you know any one who is suffering from cancer you can save his/her life by contacting Dr. Brown Nelson via his email : (brownnelson07@aol.com) it worked exactly as the doctor prescribed. Thanks to Dr. Brown Nelson for taking away sorrow in my life. God will bless Dr. Brown Nelson for helping me with cannabis oil and for his support and care, i will keep on help you to fight cancer in the World, all i have to say is THANK YOU LORD.
