Everything about CBD
Cannabidiol is one of the many cannabinoids that can be found in hemp, or cannabis. It is more and more studied and recognized for its use, because it is strongly present in the hemp cultivated in Europe, and particularly in France. There are currently 144 cannabinoids (CBD, THC, CBC, CBG, CBN …), each producing different effects.
What is CBD?
Cannabinoids are the active ingredients in hemp, and can have different origins. They can be derived from hemp, like Cannabidiol that you find in WEASY products, but they are also produced by our body (endo-cannabinoid) or by synthesis:
Unlike its cousin THC, it does not offer a psychotropic effect, so it does not alter consciousness or perception, which gives it legal and free status. The WHO has recognized it as a safe and non-toxic product. From now on, we find CBD in several forms: edible oils, capsules, creams or even e-liquid of Cannabidiol.
Where does CBD come from?
It is made from hemp, an ancestral plant that has been cultivated for thousands of years all over the panete. European industrial hemp, used to extract Cannabidiol, is different from cannabis used for THC: it has little or no flowers, and is mainly cultivated for its industrial, food or cosmetic uses (hemp seed oil, clothing, etc. insulation, bioplastic, etc.). Its cultivation does not require the use of fertilizers or pesticides, and also very little water.
France is the leading hemp grower in Europe. The CBD present in WEASY products is entirely derived from organic European hemp containing no traces of pesticides, fertilizers and other heavy metals
CBD: how does it work?
CBD influences the body through its involvement in the endo-cannabinoid system: a set of receptors placed throughout the body that help regulate its balance. The action of Cannabidiol is a little different from that of other cannabinoids, but it remains the same. Thus, since this system is present in all humans, animals are likely to benefit from cannabinoids.
Endo-cannabinoid system: what is it?
The endo-cannabinoid system consists of a set of receptors placed throughout the body that regulate different aspects of the body helping to balance it: mood, temperature, acidity, etc.
There are several ways to use Cannabidiol:
What are the effects of CBD?
CBD is now available by prescription to treat and relieve multiple sclerosis and intractable epilepsy.

Numerous animal but also human studies, in addition to numerous case studies available and posted online by various scientists, are leading more and more people to use Cannabidiol. You can find information on the subject, and studies translated into French, in our blog.
With CBD oils, you can reap the effects of Cannabidiol quickly, and for a moderately long duration. This is everyone’s preferred mode of use, as it allows you to precisely dose the CBD you want to use, thanks to its dropper bottle: each drop of CBD, depending on the product, contains a precise milligram. Simply place the desired number of drops under your tongue, and wait 30 seconds before swallowing, with or without a glass of water. Thus, Cannabidiol will be quickly transmitted to your body, thanks to the mucous membranes, and will be easily assimilated in depth. Indeed, CBD oils are composed of a vegetable oil, such as olive oil or hemp seed oil, and an extract of Cannabidiol: the latter is better assimilated by the body thanks to to its transport in a fatty substance.
There are now several capacities available: 4%, 5%, 10%, 15% or 20%. As a reminder, a drop of 4% CBD oil contains 2mg of CBD, a drop of 10% CBD oil contains 10mg:
4%: 2mg per drop
5%: 2.5mg per drop
10%: 5mg per drop
15%: 7.5mg per drop
20%: 10mg per drop
CBD capsules are also very popular: if you don’t like the taste of the oil, or just prefer to use Cannabidiol like any other capsule, then you can use these capsules. They consist of a fatty substance, associated with an extract of hemp rich in CBD: the WEASY capsules perfectly combine organic cocoa butter with high quality CBD. These capsules are very practical because they contain a precise rate of Cannabidiol: 10, 20 or even 30mg of CBD per capsule. It is therefore very easy to be able to access your daily dose of CBD, without complicated calculations. In addition, you can transport them wherever you want, thanks to their transport box. To use them, it’s very simple: just swallow them with a large glass of water, at mealtime. Their passage through the digestion system makes them a little longer to act, but you will be able to appreciate their effectiveness over a longer and more intense period.
With CBD e-liquids, many people have successfully reduced or even stopped their consumption of cigarettes, and / or nicotine. Cannabidiol e-liquids are made from a base of normal e-liquid, and a hemp extract rich in Cannabidiol: you can therefore use them like any e-cigarette liquid. Just fill your reservoir with e (CBD liquid and enjoy its benefits. They are available in several strengths, per 10ml bottle: 100mg, 300mg or 500mg.

CBD creams, unlike other products, allow them to take advantage of the increasingly recognized benefits of Cannabidiol for the epidermis. WEASY creams allow you to enjoy the benefits of Cannabidiol, along with other active ingredients from nature, to relieve, repair or even hydrate your skin. You can use them like any cosmetic: drop a small amount of cream on localized areas, morning and evening, massaging gently.
How to dose or use my CBD
To be able to enjoy the benefits of CBD, we recommend that you start with a simple and less daily intake, and gradually increase as you feel. Start with a drop of Cannabidiol, in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. If after a few days you are not feeling the benefits you expected, then increase by one drop per day until you feel your need. If you are using CBD in capsule, cream or e-liquid form, do the same: increase your reports, every day, based on how you feel.

Thus, it is perfectly legal and can be used in everyday life to strengthen your body.
In addition, CBD is recognized for its anti-psychotic use, by many studies and uses: it helps calm the “high” effects of THC.
