Legalities & Research

Compliance with Legal Requirements of South Africa

Canamere’s supplement meets the legal requirements of South Africa and CANNOT cause intoxication, or make you high, as it is 100% non-psychoactive and is not a medicine. Its naturally occuring cannabinoids are exclusively from Hemp. The Meduca™ Endocannabinoid Support Supplement is specifically produced to comply with South African regulations and can solely be used for what it is – a superior nutritional supplement for everyday well being.

Hemp is a specific genetic family member of the Cannabis Sativa plant and is not the same as its sister plant – marijuana. The plants used in their formulations are specially bred to contain high concentrations of the naturally occurring non-psychoactive, non-intoxicating, Hemp-Cannabinoids. These plants contain below 0.001% tetrahydrocannabinol (the only psychoactive and potentially toxic cannabinoid) as required by South African regulation.

Canamere Meduca™ Is Not Psychoactive

You CANNOT get ‘high’ or intoxicated by consuming the non-psychoactive Hemp-cannabinoids in Meduca™. In fact, no hemp oil, or any whole, raw and/or natural product from Hemp plants can make you ‘high’. You can purchase numerous hemp products on the market today, although none of them will be as specialised as Meduca™.

Out of over 80 different active cannabinoids discovered in the cannabis plant family, only one is psychoactive and toxic at certain levels, and can be dangerous to the human body. Meduca™ is strictly non-psychoactive and it is not toxic – thus it cannot cause intoxication, or get you in trouble with South African law if you use or have it in your possession. Canamere adheres to South African regulations that insist that any Hemp product must contain below 0.001% tetrahydrocannabinol. Unlike Marijuana, Hemp does not contain this psychoactive and potentially toxic cannabinoid in enough quantities to have any effect on the human body.

External Research

Internationally, experts report although ‘more vigorous’ testing is required, pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown cannabinoids to have a potential range of effects that may be useful therapeutically. Human trials done so far have been limited, but there is a lot of anecdotal evidence & medical research so far indicating that we might finally have found a non-toxic plant based way of helping people support their bodies in a most significant way.

Interestingly, a patent filed before the year 2000 and was granted around non-toxic cannabinoids being an antioxidant & neuroprotectant, is owned by the government of the United States of America, view http://www.google.com/patents/US6630507
