‘CBD’ Vapes Mushroom On Malaysian Facebook And Telegram

Advertising and sale of vape liquids, supposedly with cannabidiol (CBD), proliferate in Malaysian groups on Facebook and Telegram, even though cannabis derivatives are illegal under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. The widespread online distribution of e-liquids with so-called “CBD” – a marijuana compound that does not cause a high – complicates efforts by police authorities to crack down on adulterated e-cigarettes, especially after the federal health regulator, the Ministry of Health (MOH), removed liquid nicotine from control under the Poisons Act 1952.


21.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 5.3 million current smokers in Malaysia 42.10% of men are current smokers but only 0.50% of women.
