Legislation and use of cannabis in the Czech Republic

From the point of view of therapeutic use, we could highlight especially varieties rich in the very effective cannabinoid CBD as well as CBG. Varieties of cannabis with a high content of these cannabinoids, and only trace amounts of THC (up to 0.3%), are completely legal in the Czech Republic.

Cannabis with a THC content above 0.3% can only be obtained with a prescription. You won't get it any other legal way. Cultivation, use, distribution and other handling of this type of cannabis is a misdemeanor or a crime in the Czech Republic, respect the legislation! A prescription can only be issued by a specially trained doctor, provided that your medical condition requires it. The most common users are patients being treated for fibromyalgia.

Therapeutic cannabis with THC can therefore only be obtained with a prescription. It will be issued to you in pharmacies with specially trained staff. This partial legalization of cannabis came into force in 2012.
