Yes. Anvisa (“Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária” from Brazil) does not evaluate professional practice, so there is no restriction for any medical specialty to prescribe the products. It is enough that the doctor has an active CRM (Regional Council of Medicine) and the documents are correct.
CBD has a very long half-life in the body (1-5 days), but the effects generally last for about 6-12 hours.
The half-life is the time it takes for exactly half of a compound to be metabolized and eliminated from the bloodstream. It is a measure used to predict how long an active dose of a compound (such as CBD or pharmaceutical drugs) will last and how often follow-up doses can be taken. With a long half-life, the concentration of CBD gradually builds up in the body – giving it longer lasting effects if you take it often.
No. CBD itself is non-addictive and has a low probability of producing tolerance or physical dependence – especially when compared to alternative pain relievers or anxiolytics.
