Green Gorilla plans to continue expanding its brand internationally where laws are favorable to CBD. After a series of historic rulings, ANVISA removed CBD from Brazil’s prohibited substance use list, removed the import tax and is actively subsidizing the cost for those who need financial assistance. Doctors in Brazil may prescribe CBD, including Green Gorilla, for treatment of intractable seizures as well as other illnesses. This ruling officially authorizes the compassionate use of CBD for the treatment in of intractable epilepsy in 2014by the Federal Medical Council of Brazil.
