South Africa – Telling your mom you’re going to the CBD has a sinister new meaning from today (Friday 24 May 2019) after the latest victory in Dagga Wars…

Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound extracted from cannabis that is found in everyday items such as skin creams, body oils and even beer, is suddenly the new buzzword in South Africa after the legal status of CBD got the green light on Friday. The long and the short of it is that certain “medicinal” dagga products – Cannabidiol, or CBD, or dagga oil, to be exact – may now be sold without prescription.

CBD is accepted as not being psychoactive. The oils containing this element are also NOT habit-forming, and CBD does not pose any dangerous side-effect as long as the daily dose does not exceed 20 milligrams. Also, the minister of health, Aaron Motsoaledi, announced that marketers are not allowed to claim their products Can cure or treat any medical condition.

However, it is widely accepted that cannabidiol has an extremely positive effect on people suffering from anxiety and sleeplessness to chronic pain from arthritis. It even helps with seizures.

CBD is immediately available from Vondel Premium (PTY) Ltd., an online concern based in Gauteng (see www.vondel.co.za).

Vondel.co.za hosts an array of resources – from an intricate look into the medicinal benefits of CBD to the curing process of cannabis.

“CBD products are notoriously expensive across the globe,” says co-founder Rian Kotze.

“Vondel aims to limit margins to maintain pricing that is fair and more easily accessible to the general public. This is beneficial not only to the general public but might also seem appealing to interested investors looking to pair up with an early stage market disruptor.”

Products can be ordered online at www.vondel.co.za (payments are processed by PayPal), and delivery will take between 4 – 6 working days. This will soon reduce to 2-day deliveries as Vondel plans its own logistics solutions.
According to co-founder and LGBT activist Jeandre Verster, Vondel is currently preparing for Series-A funding from potential Angel Investors. The company hopes to launch its first retail location by the end of the year, as well as develop their own range of CBD and related Cannabis Pharmaceuticals in preparation for full legalisation coming 2020. Interested investors can make contact via invest@vondel.co.za

Vondel also boasts a rather impressive Charity Policy, dedicating a staggering 20% of nett profit to Parkinson’s and Elder Relief organisations.
