It’s CBD oil. It’s not raw cannabis. It is processed. Plus the oil is for external use like any other oil. I would get my doctor give me a prescription. Then it become a prescribed medication. Or just pour the oil in another bottle and bring it with u. It does not smell like cannabis at all. We use this oil for pain remedy all the time

You wanna have an extended holiday stay in one of the notorious 5 ⭐️ hotel ?
If not, don’t even THINK about it !
And with ANYTHING to do with cannabis, the penalties are not fines most of the time, but prison times…and bloody long time.
And what I just mentioned applies even for personal use. In fact, whether it’s for personal or MEDICAL use or not, it makes ZERO difference. CBD oil for medical use is still not legal in MRU.

And please, do NOT listen to ppl telling you to get a Dr’s certificate for it and you’ll be fine— you won’t!
If caught, expect a definite extended stay!…whether in jail during all the legal process or on bail. BUT in both cases, your passport will be confiscated and a “objection to departure” will be ordered by the court.
Do NOT risk it!
Mind you, there are certain meds that are completely legal in other parts of the world that are still illegal in MRU (in Australia these meds are listed as S8 – Controlled Drugs…for example, meds for ADHD)

In November 2022, Mauritius joined a growing number of African countries, such as South Africa, Rwanda and Ghana amongst others, who have legalised the dispensing of cannabis or its extracts to people suffering from a range of medical conditions. The Dangerous Drug Act 2000 (the “Amended DDA”) was amended to decriminalise the use of cannabis for medical purposes in Mauritius and, more specifically, it provides clarity on how medical cannabis will be regulated and dispensed.

If you have a prescription you could risk it I guess.. but it’s a risk nevertheless.
