Is CBD Oil Halal? Your Questions Answered

Advice
|
5 min

Under Islamic law, the term halal means permitted. If something is forbidden, it is deemed to be haram. These terms are used by Muslims across a broad spectrum to categorise everything in life, from food and drink consumption to cosmetics. 

Rules under Islamic law are very strict and Muslims are only able to use halal items. When CBD oil came to the market, there was some controversy at first among devout Muslims over whether it would be permissible for use in the Islamic faith because of its origins. 

So what was the verdict? Is CBD oil halal or haram?

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, an extract from the cannabis plant. It is the non-psychoactive element of the plant, used frequently in wellbeing programmes as a supplement to help support a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

CBD oil is commonly taken as oil drops under the tongue, but can also come in other forms such as absorption drinks and creams. Consumers claim it is effective in helping to manage pain, anxiety, stress and nausea.

Does CBD Oil Make You High?

Many people assume that because CBD is derived from the cannabis plant that it will make you high if you consume it. But CBD is non-psychoactive, which means it doesn’t create any intoxication effect or make you feel “high”. 

The compound in the cannabis plant that creates the “high” feeling is known as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. CBD oil is legal to buy in the UK because it either does not contain THC or it has a very minimal trace that wouldn’t have any effect on the human body. 

Some users claim that using CBD oil makes them feel more relaxed and calmer, which is why more than a third of users chose it for anxiety and stress.. It is thought that this is because of the way the compound interacts with receptors in the body to change the way it reacts.

Is CBD Oil Halal?

CBD oil is considered by most Muslim scholars to be halal because it is an organically produced plant extract. As long as it is 100 percent free from THC, it will not cause any intoxication effect and doesn’t contain any haram products. It is deemed to be similar to other plant extracts such as lavender, which can also be used under Islamic law. 

Full spectrum CBD oil can contain tiny traces of THC, but even these are considered halal because of the “negligible quantities”.

Are Any CBD Products Haram?

Are Any CBD Products Haram?

CBD infused products can be trickier to categorise into halal and haram so we would recommend that you are sure to check the contents of all CBD products before use. 

Some products are obvious, such as CBD gummy bears made from gelatine. These would definitely be haram because gelatine is a product of animal matter, usually from pork which is strictly haram. 

But some CBD products are not as clear. For example, some CBD capsules can also contain gelatine and some oils use haram flavourings so it is important to check the ingredients list of all products before you buy.

Additionally, vaping CBD is strictly haram as vaping is seen as imitating smoking, which is also forbidden. Any product or substance that can be harmful to the body or intoxicating is banned, so cigarettes and nicotine are all deemed to be haram. Vaping comes under the same umbrella.

The Bottom Line

Yes! CBD oil is considered to be halal because it is a natural plant extract that will not make you high. 

It is important to use a reputable, trusted supplier so you can be sure of their “THC free” status and confident in your use of a halal product. 

Due to its origins and the very strict guidelines surrounding halal or haram, some Muslims may feel most comfortable talking to their own local religious leaders and doing their own research before making a final decision on using CBD oil.
