Noting the amended Health Regulations, the Phoenix Stores said that they now stock a “wide selection of cannabinoid [CBD] Hemp Oil products at its seven drugstore locations.”

Sian Bowen, Chief Pharmacist at The Phoenix Stores, says; “Medicinal cannabis use has garnered much national attention in recent years where some promising evidence indicates CBD as a successful, alternative treatment of various medical conditions.

“After much discussion on the subject, The Phoenix Stores is pleased with the Bermuda Health Council’s decision to amend regulations and allow the distribution of cannabinoid products on island via pharmacies only. As such, customers can expect to find a line of organic hemp oil concentrates, tinctures, capsules and beauty aids at our dispensaries island-wide.”

In November of last year, Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “After some years handling the requests and doing further research and consultation, it was determined that CBD-containing products with less than 1% tetrahydrocannabinol [THC] could be safely re-classified as an over-the-counter medicine rather than a controlled substance.

“This will eliminate the unnecessary burden of processing applications and remove access barriers, based on the low level of risk attributed to the substance. This approach is consistent with that of other jurisdictions. For example, the UK has recently classified CBD oil as a medicine.

“Accordingly, CBD with less than 1% THC content will also be available over-the-counter, by a registered pharmacist in a pharmacy.”

    Legalize it ffs. It CLEARLY has lots of benefits and was only made illegal because synthetic producers of its characteristics have historically lobbied against it. From rope to medicine.

    Rich get richer yet the plant remains illegal. De-schedule ganja you bunch of moronic hypocrites, then apologize to the victims of the unjust ‘war on some drugs’ and follow up with full pardons and renumeration.

    “Controlled” Substance.

    Weed has been illegal, even though it’s proven health benefits, because the governments didn’t know how to control the flow of profit. Now that they do it’s legal…

    If it’s sold at any kind of store the government won’t make a huge profit from it.

    What’s the largest chain of pharmacies in Bermuda and who owns them…

    Pharmacies, Doctors, & Insurance Companies are all big money and all lining the government’s pockets…

    The Phoenix stores did not mention the price.For a bottle of hemp oil capsules 30 in a bottle the price is $99.00.
    How do they justify this. That is the cheapest price,it goes up to $300.00.I knew that as soon as they found out they could sell it legally they put an exorbitant price on it.If this is not a case for price control I don’t know what is.Priofiteering in Bermuda is alive and well.

    Cbd oil is available over any counters in all 50 states, there is no need for a pharmacist, I dont know what information the Ministry has but there clearly needs to be talks and information shared. There shouldnt be any issue with individuals purchasing a compliant and fda approved product that has no thc in it and having it shipped to their home and yes I will admit it is expensive I sell it and take the cbd oil and use the cream.

  11. 1% is a low amount, 3% here in states.
