CBD: Answers to your questions


What is Cannabidiol (CBD) ?

To understand what CBD is, it's important to know that the Cannabis plant is made up of several molecules, called Cannabinoids.

Long known for its THC molecule and its psychoactive effects, the Cannabis plant is gradually revealing other molecules with numerous benefits, such as CBD. When the plant contains less than 0.2% THC, it's known as "hemp flower".

Where does CBD come from ?

Discovered in the 20th century, CBD was first extracted from the hemp plant in 1940.

Although the molecule was initially considered harmful to humans, researchers discovered the extent of its benefits in 1960. This discovery led to much thought being given to the use of CBD for medical purposes, notably for its positive effect on anxiety, and later on pain and nausea.

What's the difference with THC ?

In its natural state, Cannabis contains an average of 15 to 25% THC.

This concentration is responsible for its psychoactive effects, known as "highs". This is why Cannabis flower is considered a narcotic, and its consumption is illegal in France and several other European countries. However, Cannabidiol (CBD) has no psychoactive effects.

On the contrary, it has positive effects on the human body, including relaxing properties, such as a feeling of relaxation and well-being. What's more, CBD is neither addictive nor addictive, and is absolutely non-toxic.

Consumption of CBD, even at a high dose, does not present a risk of the anxiety attacks often associated with THC consumption.

How do I use CBD?

Now widespread in several countries, hemp flower is derived into a wide variety of products. Among the most popular are :

CBD flowers

When consumed as an infusion, they provide intense relaxation and reduce anxiety. Depending on the choice of flower, the amount of CBD is higher or lower. At Deli Hemp, you'll find CBD flowers with concentrations ranging from 2.5% to 89%. For novices, we recommend starting with low concentrations.

CBD oils

CBD oil is considered a dietary supplement, generally administered orally. If you're new to CBD, we advise you to choose a fairly low dosage, and increase doses gradually. Generally speaking, we recommend 2 to 3 drops of oil a day.

The most common method of consuming CBD oil is sublingually (pouring drops of oil under the tongue), but you can also mix it with a drink or food. For more details on how to consume the oils, seeour user guide.

What are the effects of CBD?

The relaxing effect of CBD, without the harm of THC

CBD has become famous largely for its miraculous effects against stress and anxiety. CBD's anxiolytic and relaxing properties allow consumers to feel a sense of well-being and relief, without the harmful effects.

As a result, it also helps to resolve physical problems linked to anxiety (heart acceleration, depression, etc.). By acting on stress and anxiety, CBD also has an impact on sleep disorders, often linked to stress.

The effects of CBD on pain

CBD acts directly on the receptors responsible for pain (CB1 and CB2), helping to resolve chronic inflammatory pathologies. Its analgesic action acts as a painkiller and anti-inflammatory. This molecule is used to relieve neuropathic pain, and is now a component of the drug Sativex.

A remedy for muscle pain

CBD-based products for cutaneous application (balm, massage oil) are highly effective in soothing muscular pain associated with sports, as well as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and chemotherapy-related pain. Thanks to their relaxing effects, cannabinoids help relax muscles and prevent aches and pains.

The effects of CBD on the skin

The benefits of CBD in dermatology

Numerous CBD-based products have proven their benefits in dermatology. There are more and more hemp-based cosmetics on the market, such as CBD creams, CBD oils, balms, shower gels and more.

Cannabidiol's anti-inflammatory properties help relieve irritated, itchy skin. It also acts against excess sebum, the appearance of acne pimples, eczema and psoriasis. Hemp deeply moisturizes the skin, helping to combat dry skin. Many hemp-based products can be found in parapharmaceutical skincare products.

Is CBD legal?

On Wednesday, June 23, 2021, the Cour de Cassation (French Supreme Court) handed down a "sweeping" ruling on the marketing of CBD (Cannabidiol) products in France.

This molecule derived from Cannabis is non-psychotropic: for this reason, the French Supreme Court has finally lifted the legal uncertainty surrounding CBD in France, and declared CBD-based products legal to trade, provided they are produced in the European Union and derived from the Sativa L variety.
