Legislation in Iceland

Iceland does not operate an official medical marijuana program, but the medical application of cannabis is permitted under specific circumstances by a limited group of physicians.

Only certified neurologists have the authority to prescribe medical cannabis, primarily aimed at individuals suffering from muscular dystrophy.

The criteria for eligibility to obtain a medical marijuana card in Iceland are quite strict. Nonetheless, CBD oil is relatively easier to access.

Compared to other European nations, Iceland adopts a more progressive stance regarding cannabidiol products. Echoing the practices of various countries, cannabidiol in Iceland must be completely free of THC.

Traveling or importing to Iceland with CBD

An individual is allowed to travel with or import CBD into Iceland for personal use, either through mail or in their luggage, if the CBD is produced as a medicinal product. A person importing CBD into Iceland may be required to demonstrate that the medicinal product intended for personal use was obtained through legal channels and that the quantity of CBD being imported is necessary for their personal use.

Travelers aiming to bring CBD into Iceland are advised to always carry the necessary certificates or laboratory reports that verify the THC content of the product.
