For some reason, a few months ago when the high court ruling was made and weed was all the talk, this idea of buying CBD Oil at Dischem seemed to pop up. We haven’t been able to work out if they were perhaps selling CBD at the time, or had announced plans to, but the only hemp-related product we’ve been able to find Dischem selling is hemp seed oil.
Since this seems to be somewhat of a new urban legend among online weed culture in South Africa (as we’ve had a number of people telling us to look for CBD at Dischem), we wanted to clarify some things. We’ve written this article to set the record straight, and lead those who are just as confused as we were in the right direction.
In short, no. We searched online and in-store, as well as phoning a number of larger branches, and we couldn’t find any trace of CBD Oil at Dischem.
This is most likely due to the fact that CBD Oil has only recently become fully legal in South Africa. The framework is still to be put in place for a legal CBD market, so big corporations like Dischem will likely take a while to catch on.
For those looking to use CBD or Dagga Oil for Cancer, anxiety, sleeplessness, or nausea, your local pharmacy isn’t the right place to look – at least for now.
The good news is that there are several young, local startup businesses in South Africa that sell a wide range of CBD products. We’ll briefly discuss a few of the trusted brands that are making a name for themselves in this relatively new but rapidly growing industry.
Africanpure is the most trusted CBD brand in South Africa. They’re a strong all-round brand that sells CBD oil for a variety of purposes, including a great everyday CBD oil. They also have oils that are tailored to different groups such as adults, kids, and pets. They even recently partnered with Colcacchios (the well known SA pizza restaurant) to make the country’s first dagga pizza.
Goodleaf has secured their position as South Africa’s premium CBD brand, and they’re the only cannabis oil business in the country that has a physical store. They sell their own brand of CBD oil as well as stocking CBD products from international brands operating where cannabis is fully legal. They also sell CBD vapes and a range of CBD cosmetics.
CBD Health (Virescent)
Virescent is a South African business that specialises in vaporisers, but they also have a really great selection of CBD oil products that make up their CBD Health range.
Heliolife is a small family run business that is building a high-quality, reputable brand in South Africa’s CBD scene. Their CBD oil has a coconut oil carrier, and they will soon be expanding their range.

While Dischem doesn’t stock any CBD oil, it is one of the many hemp seed oil suppliers in South Africa, which may have contributed to the confusion. A legal nutritional oil quite similar to Olive Oil or Coconut Oil, hemp seed oil is rich in omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids. It is best used cold as it has a very low smoke point and can’t really be heated. Hemp seeds also contain more protein than both chia seeds and flaxseed.
Many people use hemp oil as part of their daily supplement routine, adding it to pastas, sauces, salad dressings, and even smoothies and protein shakes. It’s a fully legal product made from hemp (which is essentially cannabis with a THC content of 0.3% or less), and we’re excited to see CBD getting regulated in a similar way.
Hemp seed oil has long been available from Dischem, as well as most health shops or holistic wellness outlets countrywide.
CBD Oil Dischem Price
We know we’ve made it abundantly clear by now that Dischem doesn’t stock CBD Oil, but you may have arrived on this page in search of CBD Oil prices, so we thought we’d briefly discuss how much it costs. The price of CBD Oil in South Africa varies depending on several factors, including the strength of the oil, the other ingredients involved, and the brand. Most CBD oils come in 30ml bottles, with varying amounts of the active chemical (measured in mg), which dictates the strength.
Heliolife sells a relatively low strength (400mg) CBD Oil for around R700, making it a good low-cost option for first-time users. Goodleaf’s strongest CBD Oil (1500mg), on the other hand, costs around R1600, and the Leaflabs Max CBD Oil (2500mg) usually costs around R2500.
We’re still not quite sure where the idea of finding CBD Oil at Dischem came from, however, it’s not quite yet a reality. We hope that we’ve have supplied you with some helpful information and alternatives, and made the confusing process of finding CBD Oil a little bit easier.
