Cannabis Based Products
Most medicinal cannabis products are Schedule 8 medicines and are for human therapeutic use only. They cannot be prescribed by veterinary surgeons.
With regard to cannabidiol, that is a schedule 4 product if used for therapeutic purposes (human or animal). Veterinary surgeons may prescribe these products. However, to be classed as cannabidiol, the total amount of cannabinoids present must not exceed 2%. If this is not the case then the product would revert to schedule 9 and be a prohibited drug which cannot be prescribed by a veterinary surgeon.
Any possession of a schedule 4 medicine without a valid prescription is an offence, so if clients are sourcing the oil from the internet they may be committing offences under the Medicines and Poisons Act 2014.
