Cork is the second-largest city in Ireland, situated in the southwest region of the country, and has a rich culture and history of art, music, and theatre. In 2005, Cork was named the European Capital of Culture, and in 2009, it was in Lonely Travel's top ten best places to travel.
With CBD oil legal in Cork now, there's more reason to travel there, so it's essential to understand what Cork has to offer, along with the laws surrounding CBD oil's sale.
What Is Cannabidiol and Why Is It Becoming So Popular in Cork?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil comes from cannabis, a chemical in both the marijuana plant and the hemp plant. CBD oil in Ireland comes from hemp instead of marijuana, in part because of restrictions on THC but also because hemp is widely known as a sustainable resource for fibre and oils.
CBD oil has gotten popular in many places worldwide because it's part of the wellness industry. Like anything else in the wellness industry, people see CBD oil as a supplement that can help them with any number of things.
Legal Status of Cannabidiol in Cork?
The Irish government recognized hemp as a sustainable source of both fibres and oils about 25 years ago. However, hemp products can only contain 0.2 per cent of THC or less. Thus, any CBD oil you buy in Cork won't have enough THC to get you high.
Growers need licences from the Department of Health and facilitation through the Health Products Regulatory Authority. Growers and sellers cannot make health or medicinal claims in their marketing campaigns for CBD oil, though they are considered food supplements.
Manufacturers must use specific processes to extract the oils from the hemp plant to sell in Ireland without certain government permissions. More recently, the Irish government recognized hemp-derived CBD oil as a non-cannabis product, making it fully legal and easier to sell.
In short, yes, CBD oil is legal in Cork, but under heavy restrictions.
What CBD Products Do We Carry?
With all of that in mind, Dr. Hemp Me sells many different CBD products in Cork and elsewhere. Our wide selection of cannabidiol (CBD) oil comes from Cannabis Sativa L, grown right here in Ireland and across the EU.
Per the law, you can find THC in our products, but it's less than 0.2%. However, you can get various benefits from not just the cannabidiol but also five other compounds found in Cannabis Sativa L.
We also use light-blocking bottles since light can destroy the compounds in our CBD oil products. Take a look at what we offer to see what might be right for you.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
We sell full-spectrum CBD oil, which is a combination of several different plant extracts, including other cannabinoids. Our full-spectrum CBD oil products include:
- CBD Oil 10%, 1,000 mg CBD Oil 200 drops (Starter)
- CBD Oil 20%, 2,000 mg CBD Oil 200 drops (Superdose)
- CBD Oil 40%, 4,000 mg CBD Oil 200 drops

- CBD Oil 5%, 500 mg 200 drops (THC Free)
- CBD Oil 10%, 1,000 mg 200 drops (THC Free)
CBD Oil for Pets
Many people wonder if CBD oil is good for pets. The answer is yes! Animals have the same abilities to metabolize cannabidiol and other hemp extracts as humans.
We sell CBD oil for pets in 2.5% and 5% strengths to cover most pets. Dosing is as follows:
- Below 20 pounds - two to four drops
- 20 to 50 pounds - four to eight drops
- Above 51 pounds - 10 drops
For maximum benefit, try to give your pets the oil daily for four to six weeks.
Would you rather eat something than put oil under your tongue for five minutes? We have gummies with CBD oil, too, and you get two choices of flavours: Strawberry and fizzy. They're fun and fruity, easy to eat, and excellent for children and adults alike.
Each gummy has 25 mg of CBD oil, but you can also choose 500 and 750 mg options.
Other CBD Products
Our strongest product is a paste that comes in 40%, 70%, and 80% and allows you to find the exact dosage that works for you.
If you prefer taking your CBD oil like any other supplement, we offer capsules, too, with 10 mg of CBD oil per capsule. They have less of the natural hemp taste and odour, so if you don't like those, these capsules could serve you well in that capacity, too.
Have These Products Been Lab-Tested?
Yes. We consider lab tests a crucial part of our business. Eirelab, one of the industry leaders in cannabis testing in Ireland and Europe, puts all of our products through extensive testing before and after the extraction process.
Those tests measure potency and purity to ensure the safety and quality of all of our products. To see individual lab reports, check out our Lab Testing page.
