A
Brief
Guide
to
Buying
CBD
Oil
in
Dubai

The
United
Arab
Emirates
(UAE)
boasts
some
of
the
strictest
drug
policies
on
the
face
of
the
planet.
And
these
policies
extend
to
Dubai,
the
most
populous
city
in
the
UAE.

If
you’re
caught
with
even
trace
amounts
of
controlled
substances
(as
low
as
0.05
grams)
you
can
face
up
to
four
years
in
prison.
Trafficking
large
quantities
of
drugs
in
the
UAE
can
lead
to
the
death
penalty.

So,
what
does
this
mean
for
CBD
in
Dubai?

Well,
CBD
oil
is
deemed
to
be
the
same
as
cannabis
in
the
UAE.
This
means

CBD
is


illegal
in
Dubai

and
elsewhere
in
the
country.

However,
in
January
2019,
Dubai
Municipality
(a
branch
of
the
local
government)
confirmed
that
the

sale
and
purchase
of
hemp
seed
oil
is
legal
.

Is
CBD
Oil
legal
in
Dubai?


  • NOT
    LEGAL


    CBD
    oil
    products
    cannot
    be
    sold,
    purchased
    or
    used
    in
    Dubai.
  • LEGAL

    Hemp
    seed
    oil,
    found
    in
    health
    care
    and
    cosmetics
    products,
    is
    legal
    to
    sell
    and
    buy.

Recently,
there
has
been
a
major
crackdown
on
the
vaping
of
CBD
oil
in
Dubai,
with
almost
100
people
arrested
during
the
first
quarter
of
2019
alone.
Most
were
foreigners,
caught
trying
to
bring
CBD
oil
into
the
UAE
inside
vape
pens
or
e-cigarettes.

This
has
not
gone
unnoticed
in
other
countries.
The
UK’s
Foreign
Office
has
warned
travelers
against
bringing
even
the
smallest
amount
of
an
illegal
substance
into
the
UAE.
Doing
so
can
result
in
a
severe
jail
sentence
of
at
least
four
years.

Even
if
you
can’t
see
the
CBD
oil,
if
it’s
present
as
an
ingredient
in
soaps,
skin
care
products,
vape
pen
cartridges
or
anything
else,
it
could
land
you
in
hot
water.
What’s
more,
according
to
the
Foreign
Office,
Emirati
authorities
will
consider
the
presence
of
drugs
in
your
bloodstream
as
possession.

Dubai’s
Possession
Laws

In
Dubai,
the
minimum
sentence
for
possession
is
two
years.
However,
those
caught
with
large
amounts
of
cannabis
can
be
imprisoned
for
ten
years
or
longer.

Is
CBD
hemp
oil
legal
in
Dubai?

While
hemp
seed
oil
products
are
now
legal
in
Dubai,
there
are
currently
no
laws
regarding
the
legality
of
hemp-extracted
CBD
products.

However,
even
though
CBD
hemp
oil
contains
little-to-no
THC,
the
presence
of
the
letters
C-B-D
might
be
enough
to
bring
legal
proceedings,
and
the
risk
of
that
far
outweighs
the
benefits.

In
summary


CBD
oil
is
not
legal
in
Dubai
,
and
any
attempt
to
buy,
sell,
or
use
it
in
the
UAE
could
lead
to
severe
punishment.
