Where can you buy CBD products legally?
As always, we encourage you to do your own research as the laws are quickly changing in this space but Cannabis products which have an average total THC content of 1% or higher, are prohibited under the Narcotics Ordinance in Switzerland.
This means that CBD products with less than 0.2% THC are not subject to the Narcotics Act in Switzerland and they are actually legal to purchase in all countries in Europe, with the exception of Slovakia.
Because the wide range of CBD products is not covered by the Narcotics Act, their use is instead governed by each individual product category. That means some CBD products will fall under the Therapeutic Products Act, others will be a part of the Food Act, and even more, will be subject to the Federal Act on Product Safety in Switzerland.
What is the Pricing / Tax / VAT on CBD Products?
All cannabis products sold in Europe, which can be vaporized or smoked are treated as a tobacco product or as a tobacco substitute product for taxation purposes.
This means that CBD Flowers are taxed at the highest possible tobacco tax rate, the same rate which used for fine-cut tobacco, which is currently at a rate of 25% of the retail sale price.
In addition to the tobacco tax, all cannabis products must also have the statutory VAT also added which is currently a rate of 7.7%.
This means the final price of our CBD Flowers will have 32.41% of indirect taxes included to the retail sale price.
Do CBD products cause positive drug tests?
Cannaunion Full Spectrum CBD products, like most others available on the market today, are made using hemp extracts which typically have extremely low concentrations of less than 0.2% THC. Because these concentrations are so low, they do not produce any kind of psychoactive high whatsoever.
But unfortunately, it is still possible that even these trace amounts of THC may still register a positive result on drug tests. Especially those who require larger doses of CBD each day, who are much more likely to return a positive reading.
On the other hand, Canna Union CBD is created with absolutely no detectable traces of THC at all. This means anyone who is regularly subjected to drug tests at work can consume our CBD products without worry.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum and Isolate CBD?
Full Spectrum CBD and Isolate CBD both have pros and cons.
Full Spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoid compounds naturally found in cannabis plants. So apart from the CBD, Full-Spectrum also has other cannabinoid such as CBN, CBC, CBG, and only a small amount of THC at less than 0.2%, plus terpenes, flavonoids, and more.
Isolate CBD only contains CBD, which is achieved by either isolating CBD from cannabis extract, hence the name, or artificially manufacturing it in a laboratory.
According to the most recent studies, it seems that THC and CBD may work better when used together rather than separately. This is an example of what is referred to as the Entourage Effect, where the effects aren’t caused by the individual compounds, but rather how these compounds interact together.
Full-Spectrum products are also less processed, which helps preserve some of the organic compounds of Cannabis plants such as terpenes. Terpenes affect both the taste and smell of the product and also have medical benefits as well.
Research has shown that Full Spectrum CBD consistently provides a far more effective treatment for the symptoms of pain and inflammation than compared to Isolate CBD.
How do you administer CBD products?
CBD Oils and Tinctures are a CBD concentrate which can either be added as an ingredient with food or applied sublingually using a liquid dropper beneath the tongue. For best results, when using the sublingual method, hold the CBD under the tongue for approximately 60 seconds. While the effects of CBD Oils and Tinctures take longer to kick in compared to other CBD products, the duration of these effects do last longer.
Inhalation of the smoke from combusting CBD flowers or the vapor from vaping CBD both provides almost instant effects that usually last for around an hour or so. The duration of these effects generally depends on how much is inhaled, your tolerance and the duration the smoke or vapor is held before exhaling. Inhaling for around three seconds and holding for about five seconds or more generally seems to produce the most powerful and longest-lasting effects.
CBD edibles are CBD products which are taken orally, such as CBD pills and capsules, CBD Gummies, and CBD infused foods or treats. Like CBD oils and tinctures, CBD edibles have a protracted onset time because they need to be digested before reaching the bloodstream, but again the effects have a longer duration. Depending on the concentration, CBD edibles will usually take effect around an hour or so after consumption and could last for up to four to five hours.
CBD topicals such as lotions, balms, and therapeutic oils are applied directly to the skin or epidermis which causes a soothing sensation in the application area. Many CBD Topicals also contain moisturizers, antioxidants and other additives which can restore or replenish the skin. CBD Topicals are most often used to relieve body aches or muscle pain or to alleviate minor discomfort caused by stings, burns, or other complaints.
What is the correct dosage of CBD?
The right dosage will depend on several factors, such as body weight and CBD tolerance. The type of CBD product and its concentration are other essential considerations, and different dosing methods provide varying duration and intensity of effects.
The optimal dose for many will depend on the level of pain or discomfort experienced. Alleviating the symptoms for someone suffering from chronic pain or severe depression will likely need a higher dose than those with milder symptoms, who may prefer the less pronounced effects of a lower dose.
Tolerance levels of CBD can increase over time. Many people have found that incrementally increasing the dosage can be a beneficial way to continue achieving the desired effects. Gradually increasing the dose of CBD does not carry any known side effects as CBD is not a toxic compound.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in Cannabis sativa plants. There are at least 480 different compounds in Cannabis plants, and less than 100 of those are cannabinoids.
THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, has long been the most well-known compound in Cannabis plants as it is responsible for causing the psychoactive effects. Cannabidiol (CBD), makes up about 40% of the resin extract of cannabis plants, has gained some medical notoriety over the past decade.
The CBD cannabinoids interact with specific receptors on the surface of cells found in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. The CBD binds with these receptors and imitates compounds which are naturally produced by the body called endocannabinoids, which help maintain an internal balance of health. In simple terms, physical complications or unpleasant symptoms can occur whenever there is a deficiency within the body’s endocannabinoid system.
Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. THC bind to receptors in the brain, whereas CBD is attracted to receptors which are located throughout the body, providing various types of relief for a wide range of symptoms from pain and inflammation, to nausea and depression.
