In 2022 the government approved and legalized the recreational use of cannabis products across Malta. Malta is now one of the most progressive countries in Europe when it comes to cannabis policy. This article will provide you with everything you need to know about CBD in Malta.
We will discuss the legalities, where to find cannabis, and how to consume it safely. We will also provide some ideas on how to enjoy your cannabis experience to the fullest.
Legal Status of Cannabis in Malta
Cannabis is currently legal in Malta in small quantities for personal use at home, up to 7 grams on your person and no more than 50 grams of dried flower per household. In 2021 the government drafted legislation that decriminalized the possession of small amounts of the drug for personal use. The proposed legislation was enacted in 2022 and has now officially come into law across Malta.
Cannabis previously had been illegal in Malta for many years, however, there had been a recent push to decriminalize possession of small amounts of the drug as the benefits of the cannabis plant become known on a European scale.
The hemp plant is used to create CBD products, CBG products, CBN products, and CBNO products which, in Malta and across Europe, are classed as food or dietary supplements. They cannot be sold by companies for medicinal purposes or come with health claims attached to their marketing but they can be sold and purchased just like any other vitamin or mineral supplement.
CBD Oils, CBD Vapes, CBD edibles like Gummies, and even infused CBD Cream for topical use and skin care are all legal and available to purchase in Malta.

It is not legal to sell or purchase THC-rich Cannabis in Malta, but it is legal to grow up to 4 plants per person in your own home. This way people can grow a supply of THC-rich Cannabis without any trouble. But, this isn’t possible for everyone, and Cannabis can be a tricky plant to cultivate for any novice grower.
There are plans for cannabis clubs to form for the purpose of selling excess produce from those people growing Cannabis for personal use at home.
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding CBD supplements:
How is CBD / CBG/ CBN oil used?
CBD oil is used in a variety of ways. It can be taken orally, applied topically, or inhaled. CBD oil is also available in a variety of formulations, including tinctures, capsules, edibles, and topicals.
When taken orally, CBD oil is typically ingested in the form of a tincture, capsule, or edible.
What are the side effects?
CBD oil is generally safe to use, but there are some potential side effects that you should be aware of. These include:
Dry mouth: CBD oil can cause a decrease in saliva production, which can lead to dry mouth.
Fatigue: If too much is taken the user may feel drowsy or fatigued but this is only the case if very large amounts of oil are used. Stick to the guided dosage on the product label.
How much should I take?
This is a difficult question to answer because there is no one “right” answer. The amount of CBD oil that you should take depends on a variety of factors, including your age, weight, and your natural tolerance level to CBD. You cannot take too much CBD!
In general, it is best to start with a low dose and increase the amount gradually until you find the dose that works best for you. For example, 25mg per day for an adult is ideal, to begin with.
What is the legal status of Cannabidiol in Malta?
CBD oil is legal in Malta as long as it contains less than 0.2% THC and is not advertised as a medicinal product. CBD products must also be labeled with a list of all ingredients, and the amount of CBD and THC in the product.
