Question

I have a few health conditions and
after speaking with a friend, who
has similar issues, he stated that
his doctor had requested he start
taking cbd oils. I have researched
the cbd and find nothing but good
from the search however they're
now doing a cbd vape which is called
'medipen' even the NHS are
looking into this pen to start
stocking. This medipen is free from
tobacco, free from nicotine and free
from THC. Doesn't alter the mind
state etc.. What is your take on
this?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from
cannabis, and may contain a small
amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol
(THC), which is a haraam intoxicant.
In the answer to question no.
259044, we noted that it is not
permissible to add to medicine or
food anything that causes
intoxication.
If it is actually added, then the sin
is on the one who adds it. Then we
should look at the food or medicine:
if the amount of intoxicant is so
small that it is completely absorbed
and no trace of it can be detected,
and it will not cause intoxication in
the one who eats or drinks a lot of
that food or medicine, then there is
nothing wrong with consuming it.
Based on that, if it is proven that
CBD is not harmful and does not
contain THC, or it contains a small
amount that is completely absorbed
and no trace of it can be detected,
then there is nothing wrong with
taking it.
Al-Khateeb ash-Sharbeeni (may
Allah have mercy on him) said: The
difference of scholarly opinion
concerning using it – namely alcohol
– as medicine has to do with pure
alcohol (with which nothing else is
mixed). As for medicine that may
contain some alcohol, or medicine in
which alcohol is completely
absorbed, it is permissible to use it
to treat sickness, when one cannot
find any other effective medicine
made of pure ingredients that could
produce the same result. This is the
same as the issue of using impure
substances, such as snake flesh and
urine, for medicinal purposes. That
is permissible even if it is used only
to expedite recovery, on condition
that one seeks the advice of a
Muslim doctor of good character, or
a doctor who has experience in
using that medicine to treat
sickness.
End quote from Mughni al-Muhtaaj
(5/518).
It says in a statement of the
Islamic Fiqh Council belonging to
the Organisation of Islamic
Cooperation (OIC), no. 23 (11/3):
With regard to queries from the
International Institute for Islamic
Thought (IIIT), Washington:
Question no. 12:
There are many medicines that
contain varying amounts of alcohol,
ranging from 0.01 % to 25 %. Most
of these medicines are for treating
colds, sore throats, coughs and
other common illnesses; these
medicines constitute approximately
95% of medicines in this field, which
makes it difficult or impossible to
obtain medicine that is free of
alcohol. What is the ruling on taking
these medicines?
Answer:
The Muslim patient may take
medicine containing a percentage of
alcohol, if alcohol-free medicine is
not available, and that medicine is
prescribed by a trustworthy doctor.
End quote from Majallat al-Majma‘ ,
issue 3, vol. 3, p. 1087.
Based on that:
If it is proven that CBD is not
harmful and does not contain THC,
or that it contains a small amount
that is completely absorbed and no
trace of it can be detected, then
there is nothing wrong with
consuming it.

Secondly:
Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes)
contain nicotine, and other toxic
substances, according to what we
were able to find out. That has been
explained previously in the answer
to question no. 170999.
Therefore it is prohibited to
consume them.
You should beware of being deceived
by the advertising of cigarette
companies and their claims that e-
cigarettes are free of nicotine.
If we assume that it is indeed free
of nicotine and other harmful
substances, then you still should
not smoke it, because that is
imitating sinners, and the Prophet
(blessings and peace of Allah be
upon him) said: “Whoever imitates a
people is one of them.” Narrated by
Abu Dawood (4031); classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh
Sunan Abi Dawood .
And Allah knows best.
