Although Israeli law says CBD is only legal if it is synthetic retailers say authorities aren’t enforcing the rule and they sell full spectrum products freely

Israel’s Cannabis .com reports

The Ministry of Health has stated that CBD is only legal if it issynthetic, that is, not manufactured from cannabis, but in practice – the Israeli market is full of CBD “Paul Spectrum” products produced directly from cannabis.
