I have a quite terrible sleeping disorder and was using CBD oil to have some decent sleep genuinely for my health and normal life. I came to live in Indonesia and looked for the product, but could not find and so far either shops or online shops. I understand that this country is quite severe on drugs in general, but I purely need it to fuction well. Does anyone have the same issue? If so, then how are you coping with it? Do any doctors prescribe CBD for people with certain medical issues there?

What is CBD?

Quite severe on drugs? Marihuana is a class I narcotic and possession can lead to 4 years in jail. If you're a selebriti you will get away with a compulsory rehab. (They are still comparing it here to hard drugs from a fysical and psychological dependency standpoint.) But yes, you can find it online. If you do, be very cautious.

In Aceh it is -amazingly- quite popular. In food and in other recreational use. Together with Thailand it is the biggest producer of the region.

Clonazepam (Riklona) is quite popular here for sleeping disorders and anxiety attacks. Melatonin is OTC here.

Thanks for the comments. Quite severe might have been an ambiguous term. I am aware that it is prohibited here. I heard about things in Ache, but I’m not really a fan of recreational use and I just wanna cope with my health issues with CBD, so my usage back in my country is purely medicinal use.

So you mean that CBD is not recognized as the same to the prohibited substance and people can buy online? I searched a lot but nothing really came out.

I don’t want to do anything bad, so I can go back to prescriptions(I don’t like to because of side effect tho)

Please let me know you know some shops or online website that sell CBD product:)

Thank you

No. CBD is treated the same as cannabis. I read of them arresting someone at CGK for having CBD. I am having difficulty finding the article. CBD is made from extraction of oil from extremely low THC strains of Cannabis. Under Indonesian law different strains are all still ganja. It does not matter about if it is .3% THC or less.


In many countries that CBD oil has been allowed, there is a problem of regulation. There is usually no government agency to check for quality control. The supplement industry is rife with abuse of products not containing what they are supposed to. Combining that with the fact that it is considered an illegal drug in Indonesia, I would not trust any product labeled CBD being sold in Indonesia.


I will disclose my personal prejudices. I see CBD as a modern snake oil. If not familiar:
I know of no known substance on the planet that has been attributed to treat as many diseases as CBD currently has. I would need to see a multitude of double blind clinical studies to believe otherwise. If people need a placebo to treat themselves, they can just as easily get any jamu or go to the dukun for equal effectiveness.

A summary article:

Thanks for the very detailed answer. I am super convinced by your writing and confirmed that it was a right approach for me to check knowledgeable person first before I carry the product here with me. Very relieved.

I will read the attached article to deepen my knowledge. As it happened to any kind of prescriptions, what work for you and not really depends on your DNA or health conditions.

I really appreciate your answer!
