HempMeds® Mexico focuses on providing cannabidiol (CBD) oil products from Medical Marijuana, Inc. to the Mexican population. The company introduced the first CBD rich cannabis oil products into Mexico, a country that is in the process of restructuring their policies regarding cannabis.
The company works with top researchers and physicians in the country to generate scientific studies on potential uses for CBD and makes sure that customers and health professionals who choose a CBD rich botanical extract such as RH Oil™, HempMeds Mexico´s flagship product, have the latest and up to date information.
Customers can order RH Oil™ directly from the company’s website. The company ships its CBD products, including RH Oil™, Active Relief Roll On, and RSHO™ CBD Salve, to thousands of customers throughout the country.
These products are made with the same European-grown non-GMO hemp and undergo the same Triple Lab Tested™ process as all Medical Marijuana, Inc. CBD oil products.
As Mexico continues to develop their cannabis policy, HempMeds® Mexico is prepared to offer a range of consumer products in addition to its currently available products, further expanding the reach of the company’s top quality CBD.
In January of 2016, Medical Marijuana, Inc. participated in and sponsored educational events throughout the country aimed at raising awareness about CBD hemp oil. These educational events were also intended to relay the correct information about CBD to Mexican health officials, lawmakers, and doctors, so they can make qualified decisions about the role of CBD products from hemp and their harmless non addictive and non-psychoactive nature.
HempMeds® Mexico continues to work to ensure access to CBD products for people in the country. To that end, Medical Marijuana Inc. has been working closely with our nonprofit partner in Mexico, the Por Grace Foundation, to educate parents and physicians on the potential uses and effects of CBD.

Is CBD Oil Legal in Mexico?
November 19, 2019
All across the globe, cannabis law reform is ongoing – and it appears the trend is headed toward legalization. Since Colorado and Washington became the first states in the US to legalize recreational cannabis in 2012, Alaska, Oregon, Vermont, California, Nevada, Maine, Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia have all followed suit, with even more states allowing medical marijuana or decriminalizing cannabis in lieu of full legalization.
So, Is CBD Oil Legal in Mexico?
The U.S. isn’t the only country experiencing widespread cannabis reform. As of October 2018, cannabis has been fully legalized in Canada, making it the 2 nd country to do so after Uruguay in 2013. States in the US continue to legalize each year with federal legalization looming on the horizon. But what about our neighbors to the south? Is cannabis, or CBD oil for that matter, legal in Mexico?
In 2009, in an effort to decrease cartel activity, Mexico decriminalized marijuana, allowing possession of up to five grams with no ramifications. Ten years later, Mexico is yet to legalize marijuana officially, however, in October 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that blanket prohibition of marijuana was unconstitutional and impeded on citizens’ rights to “personal development.” This was the fifth time the court had come to such a verdict – an important detail in this case, because in Mexico, once a similar verdict has been reached five times in the Supreme Court, it becomes the set standard.
As a result of this new standard, it is now up to Mexico’s federal courts to ultimately decide the legality of recreational use, possession, and growing of cannabis. The October ruling established a one-year deadline for a vote on legalization. But an onslaught of lobbying from cannabis companies has impeded the process, and that deadline has been extended to April 30, 2020, as the many complexities of a new legal market across an entire country – requiring input from both lawmakers and the public – continue to be addressed.
In 2017, Mexico legalized medicinal use of cannabis containing less than 1% THC, opening the doors for CBD distribution and consumption nationwide. After the 2018 Supreme Court ruling, no less than 38 over-the-counter cannabis products were approved by the Mexican Federal Commission for the Protection Against Sanitary Risks (the equivalent of the Food and Drug Administration in the US). These CBD products, which include food supplements, cosmetics, edibles, and raw materials, are now available for retail purchase in Mexico.
Mexico is poised to legalize marijuana at any moment. When it does, 125 million adults will have access, making it the largest market for cannabis in the entire world as far as individual countries go. The magnitude of regulating such a market carries with it enormous complexities, meaning it will likely be years before a fully regulated market is established. In the meantime, dozens of legal full spectrum CBD oil and CBD capsules are available across the country, and the recent Supreme Court ruling should act as sufficient peace of mind for cannabis enthusiasts of all persuasions.
