What is CBD?

CBD is cannabidiol a safe, non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in hemp. CBD is one of the two major cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. There are more than 100 minor cannabinoids also found in the hemp plant. Extractions combining CBD and minor cannabinoids, alongside terpenes, form to make what is known as Broad Spectrum CBD.

Because CBD in non-intoxicating, it is an appealing option for individuals seeking alternative remedies for everyday issues. According to the World Health Organization CBD is safe even at high doses.

In addition, the World Health Organization reviewed CBD and found it has therapeutic benefits for eighteen ailments ranging from inflammation, pain, anxiety, sleep and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of dysphoria.

CBD has demonstrable antioxidant properties and neuroprotective and neurogenic effects.

CBD has been available for centuries in the forms of hemp extracts; however, only until more recently has scientifically-sound research been conducted. Most studies are in early phases of research trials. While CBD is touted for many benefits, it is not a cure all. More advanced research is needed to determine proper benefits, formulations, dosing, side effects and interactions with other drugs.

We always recommend doing your own research and consulting with your doctor before trying any new wellness product. Do not take if you are pregnant or lactating.

What is THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol THC has a psychoactive effect. It is one of the cannabinoids found on the cannabis plant. Under Swiss narcotics legislation, CBD flowers with THC less 1% are legal. Due to the low concentration of THC in our CBD flowers, you will not experience THC-related psychoactive effects like the “high” feeling.

What is CBG

Cannabigerol CBG is the precursor of CBD, CBC and THC. It’s sometimes referred to as the “stem cell” and hence the reason why we call our CBG flower strain “The Mother”. Like CBD, it is a non-intoxicating component and has lots of potential health benefits.

What is a cbd flower?

What is commonly called “CBD flower” is actually CBD-rich hemp flowers. CBD is a singular cannabinoid that comes from the hemp plant, which often causes people to identify hemp as the “CBD plant”. CBD flowers feature the whole bud of the hemp plant and is the raw, unprocessed, natural form of dried hemp.

Is CBD legal in Switzerland?

CBD in Switzerland is legal as long as the product contains less than 1% THC. You need to be at least 18 years old to be able to buy any of the Cannabidiol products available.

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are compounds extracted from the cannabis sativa (hemp) plant. High concentrations of cannabinoids are found in the floral material, with the hemp plant producing high concentrations of the non-intoxicating cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD).

Beyond CBD there are 100+ other non-intoxicating minor cannabinoids found in the floral material of the hemp plant. Other cannabinoids include cannabichromene (CBC), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabivarian (CBDV), cannabidiolic-acid (CBDA), THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarian (THCV) and more. Like CBD, these minor cannabinoids also have varying levels of therapeutic benefit; however, more research is needed to determine their efficacy.

Cannabinoids, like CBD and those mentioned above, interact with receptors in the human body’s endocannabinoid system, as well as other systems within the body including our Adenosine receptors and Serotonin receptors.

What is the Endocannabinoids System (ECS)?

The recently discovered (1988) Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is found in the human body’s Central and Peripheral Nervous System. The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for maintaining homeostatic action in the body, like mood, memory, appetite, thermoregulation, sleep and more.

The Endocannabinoid System consists mainly of neurons, receptors and endogenous cannabinoids that form the system. To date, the Endocannabinoid System comprises of CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors are attached to neurons and regularly receive endogenous cannabinoids.

However, unlike many systems within the body, endogenous cannabinoids are produced in an on-demand fashion and travel in a reverse manner, attaching to receptors on pre-synaptic neurons. The attachment of these endogenous cannabinoids to their receptors creates responses within the body that may balance feelings of mood, appetite, sleep and more.

These endogenous receptors can also receive phytocannabinoids like hemp-derived cannabinoids, that mimic endogenous cannabinoids and can serve as a supplement to our endocannabinoid system in times of need.

CB1 and CB2 receptors are considered to be receptors within the “Classical Endocannabinoid System.” Beyond these two receptors, other receptors exist and interact with cannabinoids but have not been officially adopted as cannabinoid receptors by the scientific community. These receptors include TRP and GPR55.

More recently, scientists have found that cannabidiol, or CBD, most commonly interacts with receptors and systems outside CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBD interacts with TRP, GPR55, Serotonin and Adenosine receptors.

TRP is a transient receptor potential channel. There are about 30 TRP channels within the body which regulated pain, temperature, vision, taste and pressure. It is likely that cannabinoids received through the skin interact with TRP channels, as well as, in some cases, CB2 receptors.

GPR55 is referred to as a G-coupled protein receptor. Alongside GPR55, GPR119 and GPR18, also interact with cannabinoids. Early research suggests that targeting this receptor may provide treatments for inflammation, pain and anti-cancer effects.

Serotonin receptors exist mainly in the gut, with 90% of Serotonin receptors present in this area. Like GPR55, Serotonin receptors are also G-coupled protein receptors. Serotonin receptors tend to influences various biological responses throughout the body including, mood, appetite, nausea, anxiety, cognition, sleep and more. Cannabinoids, like CBD, may interact with these receptors, particularly if ingested orally.

Adenosine receptors also receive cannabinoids like CBD. Four Adenosine receptors are found within the body. Each receptor is responsible for varying degrees of interaction. A1 and A2A are found within the central nervous system, working with the heart to regulate oxygen and blood flow. Both A1 and A2A also mediate the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine. In addition, A2A mediates inflammatory response within the body.

Conversely Adenosine receptors A2B and A3 are found in the peripheral nervous system and mostly are responsible for bodily processes like inflammation and immune function.

Cannabinoids, like CBD, interacts with systems like the Endocannabinoid System and receptors not found within the ECS like Adenosine, Serotonin, TRP and GPR55. Cannabinoids may turn on or off the functions of these receptors, creating enhanced or de-sensitized reactions in the body. This can aid in balancing the body’s imbalance.

Can I buy CBD flowers if I reside outside of Switzerland?

You can definitely buy Cannabidiol products in most countries of the world, but on the ones that is not legal yet, our site will let you know on the shipping address field on checkout page before payment. CBD in Switzerland is legal as long as the product contains less than 1% THC. You need to be at least 18 years old to be able to buy any of the Cannabidiol products available

Can I take CBD if I'm taking other Medications?

While CBD delivers a wide range of health benefits and its organic nature makes it safe to take with many medications, there are exceptions where CBD can interfere with them.

Even though the flowers will not cause any severe or dangerous reactions when used with certain medications it can reduce or increase the effects of them by interacting with receptors throughout the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450.

The evidence suggests that grapefruit warnings on medications should also apply to CBD as grapefruit interacts with cytochrome P450 in a similar way as CBD does. Therefore if your medications come with a grapefruit warning, you may be unable to use CBD.

Here is a list of medications that interact with Cannabidiol (CBD) and more information on the science behind it. We recommend contacting your doctor if you are taking any of these medications before intaking our cbd flowers

What are the effects obtained from CBD flower consumption?

Many users feel a huge sense of relief when smoking CBD. Again, the feeling is not overwhelming, nor is it impairing, but the body feel of smoking CBD is tangible enough for users to sometimes describe it as a body high.

Users also report feeling calmer, more focused, experience a better mind-body connection. Certain strains may also help you feel more motivated and energized, while other strains, and large amounts of CBD can make you feel more chilled and possibly even sleepy. Remember, every living being, humans or plants, are different. We have to find the one that better matches our expectations in terms of effect, flavour, smell, and look.

How can I consume CBD flowers?

While smoking hemp flowers is the most popular ingestion method through CBD vapes, CBD cigarettes (shareable and convenient-on-the-go), CBD Pre-rolls (offering a familiar cannabis feel and a higher CBD content than CBD cigarettes), the sky’s the limit when it comes to methods you can use to ingest CBD flower. You can let your creativity run wild when you use CBD flower instead of another type of CBD product. CBD flower’s allow you to make your own CBD tea or Pre-rolls as you wish.

Can I fail a drug test if I consume CBD flowers?

It is highly unlikely that you will fail a drug test due to CBD flowers. Common drug tests are testing for the presence of the chemical THC, and while CBD flowers contain small amounts of THC, you would have to be consuming large amounts in order for it to show up on a drug screening.

There are no drug tests in existence that test specifically for CBD since this cannabinoid is not an illegal drug.

What is the difference between outdoor, greenhouse and indoor CBD flowers?

Indoor, or under-the-roof cultivation

Indoor cultivation is definitely more expensive (for both the consumer and the environment), but allows the best control over all key parameters for a growing plant. It’s thus possible to processes standarization and repeatability of the expected quality and flowers’ characteristics. For this reason, consumers appreciate high-quality indoor flowers, which almost always look and smell the same.

Greenhouse, or glasshouse cultivation

A kind of bridge, or middle ground, between indoor and outdoor is greenhouse cultivation. Some say it’s the best way to grow cannabis, because it allows you to preserve the best features of both other methods, excluding the negative elements.

Greenhouse cultivation doesn’t allow full control over environmental conditions. Whereas it allows you to look after some key parameters, such as temperature and possible light deprivation. Thus, you can usually harvest two yields a year from this type cannabis cultivation. As plants can still benefit from natural sunlight in greenhouses, their aromas are similar to those grown outdoors.

The construction and equipment of greenhouses is obviously more expensive than growing plants in the field. Nonetheless, it’s still much cheaper than adapting the infrastructure for indoor cultivation.

Outdoor, or field cultivation

First of all, outdoor plants, i.e. grown in the field, depend on weather conditions. Given that in Switzerland you can usually only harvest one yield per year from a single field, relying on favorable weather conditions can be somehow like playing a roulette (especially in recent years). Thus, producers (who have capital) often choose better controlled cannabis cultivations. However, this isn’t always a better solution.

It turns out that the production of cannabinoids and terpenes, i.e. the most important health-promoting substances in cannabis, is the highest in the presence of natural light [1]. This is probably because, unlike artificial lighting, sunlight (therefore also the one reflected from the moon) represents the entire wavelength spectrum. Some believe [2] that plants grown outdoors are healthier because they don’t require intensive fertilization and increased use of pesticides. Such substances can be harmful to health ingested or inhaled in high concentrations.
