Unlike the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) molecule that gives the "high" effect, CBD is entirely non-psychoactive and does not get you "high". CBD is just one of 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, numerous scientific studies have shown that CBD has the greatest therapeutic potential of all cannabinoids.

CBD can be derived from hemp and marijuana. All of our CBD products are natural, made from "industrial" sativa hemp plants, legal under current legislation. Hemp-derived CBD is rich in medicinal and therapeutic virtues, and naturally very low in THC of 0.2% in the plant and 0% in the finished product.

Will I get the “High” effect of CBD?

No. Our hemp extract products are all made from industrial hemp, which only have traces of 0.2% THC, so there is no psychoactive effect in our products.

What the law says ?

French regulations provide that all operations concerning cannabis are prohibited, in particular its production, possession and use. Therefore, any product containing the extract of the cannabis plant is prohibited unless it falls within the scope of the derogation mentioned below .

Thus, certain varieties of cannabis or hemp, devoid of narcotic properties, can be used for industrial and commercial purposes under three cumulative conditions:

  • Hemp varieties authorized for industrial and commercial purposes are regulated and listed in the Public Health Code
  • only seeds and fibers can be used. The use of flowers is prohibited (in France) Europe authorizes the use of flowers
  • the plant must have a THC content of less than 0.2%.
  • The presence of THC in the finished products, whatever its rate, is prohibited.
  • No therapeutic virtue can be claimed, in particular by manufacturers or sellers of products containing CBD.
  • All advertisements bearing claims of therapeutic virtues are prohibited (with the exception of medicinal products benefiting from an MA).

Press release published on 19/11/20: Conviction of the French state by the European court "A Member State cannot prohibit the marketing of cannabidiol (CBD) legally produced in another Member State when it is extracted from the cannabis plant sativa in its entirety and not only its fibers and seeds”, mentions the CJEU.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

marijuana, hemp or cannabis, mean the same thing, the difference lies in the variety of the plant of which two types of cannabinoids are distinguished: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)

"Sativa" hemp for example has almost no THC, with an average content of 0.2%, has a high CBD content and a low THC content,
The flowers of the "Indica" hemp plant contain higher levels of THC, the variety, with high THC content and low CBD content, generally used for its recreational side as the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) gives a high.

      What are the benefits of using hemp?

      Hemp contains excellent nutritional values, providing essential nutritional components called essential fatty acids that the human body does not produce naturally, and must be consumed through food. In addition, emerging scientific research supports the consumption from hemp oil for general well-being and to keep you healthy, but without getting the “high” effect. Not only is hemp renewable and fast-growing, almost every part of the plant is usable - for food, fiber, building materials and fuel, with around 25,000 uses . Hemp produces CO2 and does not need herbicides to grow. It also leaves the soil in better condition than before it was planted.

      Why is CBD so expensive?

      The answer to this question lies in the fact that there are many steps and a lot of plant material needed to produce the final product.
      First, a fairly large amount of hemp must be grown, which takes months, to produce enough seeds and stems to produce a very small amount of hemp extract. Next, the extract must undergo extensive testing to ensure its composition and purity. The extract is then formulated into different product forms, such as CBD oil drops or cream… and then sold to retailers. Each entity along the way must derive a fair benefit for their efforts.


      Does the Anti-Doping Agency ban CBD in sport?

      The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced that it has updated the list of prohibited substances, and CBD has been removed from this list . cannabidiol is used by athletes for its anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties, without being psychoactive, especially with THC.

      "Cannabidiol is no longer prohibited" reads the official WADA document . “However, cannabidiol extracted from Cannabis plants may contain varying concentrations of THC, which remains a prohibited substance”. Athletes can therefore use CBD, being careful with THC.

      The WHO concluded at the end of 2017 that CBD poses no particular danger.
      As we have just seen, cannabidiol has particularly interesting therapeutic effects. But then, what about its negative effects? In reality, according to the WHO, there are no harmful consequences relating to the consumption of CBD, no study to date has been able to highlight a possible health hazard. Therefore, it can be used by a large part of the population, even if it is strongly discouraged for pregnant women, as well as for minors.


      Can you recommend the ideal CBD dosage?

      It really depends on what you're taking it for. We are not authorized to give advice on dosages as this is considered medical advice.

      Fiction !

      CBD is a molecule that comes from the cannabis plant, but unlike THC (another cannabis molecule), CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause a high.

      CBD from hemp is less effective than CBD from cannabis

      Fiction !

      CBD is a molecule that is part of the chemical structure of the cannabis plant. And remains the same as hemp.

      Cannabis and hemp are the same plant.

      It is a fact !

      Hemp and cannabis come from the same species of plant - called Cannabis sativa. Hemp is characterized as a cannabis plant with a low THC level of 0.2 to 0.3% unlike the indica variety which contains more THC.

      The different ways to use CBD

      The explosive growth in the popularity of legal cannabis has led to the development of many products in different forms.

      From topical creams to infused beverages, consumers now have a whole range of choice & dosage possibilities.

      Here are some of the most common ways to consume CBD

      CBD oils are among the most popular products on the market. They are simple to use. Additionally, as they were among the first CBD products to hit the market, they have earned a reputation as the standard way to consume oils. Some oils can be taken sublingually , while others must be swallowed, usually using a dropper. However, for those who don't like the taste , they also come in different flavors or be added to various foods and liquids.
      • Sublingual CBD oil (under the tongue) is particularly interesting for people who need immediate relief, they give fast and effective effects in about 30 minutes. To administer CBD sublingually, simply place a few drops under the tongue and wait approximately 60 seconds before swallowing. Sublingual dosing works by allowing CBD to enter the bloodstream directly through the thin membrane under the tongue, bypassing the longer route that would have to be taken if CBD were to be swallowed immediately through the digestive system.
      • - Edible CBD oil can also be incorporated into edibles. Edibles have grown in popularity as a discreet dosing option. If you have the time and the patience, CBD can even be cooked at home. The main advantage of CBD oil in edible form is the duration of its effects. When swallowed and processed through the stomach, the effects of CBD generally last longer than if administered sublingually. This is partly because it takes longer to process CBD in this way - it is gradually absorbed and processed.
      • - Capsules Capsules are produced by introducing CBD oil into soluble gelatin capsules. The capsules are especially convenient for those who don't like the taste of CBD oil or want to take a dose while travelling. Most capsules are odorless and tasteless, which means they can be consumed discreetly and easily. Many capsules are also designed to disintegrate after leaving the stomach and entering the intestines. This helps maintain a greater concentration of CBD, as potentially less CBD is broken down in the stomach. The best ways to use CBD to suit your lifestyle -
      • - CBD oil with liposomes Liposomes are actually small pockets of fatty tissue that can be mixed with other substances. They have long been used as carriers of nutrients that aid digestion and metabolism. In CBD, the addition of liposomes enhances the release and absorption of cannabidiol by the body. Researchers believe that liposomes may help those who lack the adequate cannabinoid receptors needed for full treatment of CWD. For these people, the effects of CWD will only be partially felt. However, liposomes can help them better absorb CBD so they can experience its full effects. Like some capsules, liposomes protect CBD as it passes through the stomach and even go the extra mile by helping the CBD's target cells absorb it. The result is a faster and stronger experience.
      • - CBD with additional vitamins or minerals Some patients may prefer to mix their CBD with other vitamins and minerals for greater effectiveness. In combination with other natural anti-inflammatories such as turmeric and garlic, CBD can be an essential part of a purely natural anti-inflammatory regimen. Also, when mixed with small amounts of essential vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin D, CBD can become an element
