1.  What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the 113 phytocannabinoids contained in Cannabis Sativa plants. It has no psychoactive effects and is the main therapeutic agent of the plant studied in recent years. Its popularity is due to the large number of published clinical studies that suggest promising applications in many conditions and diseases.

2.  What are cannabinoids?

 Cannabinoids are a big group of active chemical compounds found naturally within both the human body and the cannabis plant. When derived from the plant, we call them phytocannabinoids. When derived from the human body, we refer to them as endo-cannabinoids.

3.  What are the positive effects of CBD?

The properties of CBD have been investigated in recent years, with excellent results. CBD is used against anxiety, as an excellent substitute for benzodiazepines; and insomnia, promoting sleep induction and maintenance. Studies have shown the decrease in chronic pain, a condition always difficult to treat, and an anti-inflammatory effect. The evidences suggest an antiemetic ability, with a focus on nausea caused by anticancer treatments. A drug for children epilepsy containing CBD has also recently been approved in Europe, an amazing result. In addition, anticancer and antidepressant effects are being studied.

The road is still long, but the results are promising in many fields!

4.  What is the difference between CBD and THC?

THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is another important compound found in cannabis plants. THC is what gives marijuana its psychoactive properties, making you feel “high”. Our plants and products contain a THC percentage lower than 0.20%, a practically negligible quantity. Although it has a chemical structure very similar to CBD, the effects are very different, making it part of the illegal substances tables in many countries of the world.

5.  How do you consume CBD? 

There are several ways to take a dose of CBD. The methods vary according to the product and the effect we want to achieve.

- Sublingually, leaving the product to act for one or two minutes before ingesting it

- Orally, pure or added to tasty recipes

- By inhalation, ideal for dabbing, vaped or mixed with tobacco

- Topically, in the form of a cream, for a local action

6.  Is CBD legal in Europe?

CBD is legal in most European countries, with due restrictions and limitations. EU's Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 classifies CBD as a novel food (foods not used in the Union before May 15th, 1997).

Generally, hemp with 0.2% THC or less is completely legal in most of Europe. Switzerland allows CBD products with less than 1% THC. There are some exceptions, France, for example, only permits products containing 0% THC. Countries are constantly changing laws, which is why we strongly recommend that you inquire with official institutions.

7.  How are the Swisscannamedix products delivered to Europe?

We ship our products across Europe quickly and efficiently. For orders on national territory, the delivery time is two days, up to a maximum of five days for the rest of Europe. Payment can be made by wire transfer or PayPal. Your information will be treated securely in accordance to our Privacy Policy.

8.  What are the possible side effects of CBD?

A range of studies have concluded that CBD is safe and non-toxic.

CBD is well tolerated by the majority of the population, with zero or minimal side effects, in therapeutic doses. Like all compounds, ingesting high doses or be very sensitive to the substance can lead to side effects and some people may experience: drowsiness, decreased blood pressure, diarrhea, dry mouth, changes in appetite and more.

9. What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Both derive from the Cannabis sativa plant, which breeds thousands of different varieties of cannabis. At first glance there is no difference, it is the chemical composition that sets them apart. Basically, hemp has a very low THC content, less than 0.2% in Europe. Marijuana has a high THC content, emphasizing psychoactive effects and making it illegal in many countries around the world.

10. How is CBD extracted from the plant?

Our company use the ultra-sound assisted extraction (USAE).

There are many extraction techniques, from the classic solvent extraction to, often used, supercritical fluid extraction (CO2) and microwave assisted extraction. The recent ultra-sound assisted extraction is faster and more efficient than other techniques, it does not consumes much solvent and it takes place through a simple process.

11. What is the difference between isolate CBD and full spectrum CBD?

 Full spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally in the cannabis plant, including other substances, like other phytocannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN), terpenes, omega-6 / omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. These substances improve the aroma and nutritional properties of the product.

From the other side, isolate CBD is the purest form, this means that there are no other compounds in the product aside from CBD.

12.  Can interactions occur between CBD and drugs?

If you’re taking CBD together with other medications, you should always exercise caution. Typically, the CBD is considered safe, but there are conditions where interactions may occur or increasing the side effects of your medicine. If you have any doubts about it, ask your doctor, he will be able to give you the correct answers.

13.  Are our products organic?

Yes, all the plants are organically grown and are free of any pesticides and herbicides. We strongly believe in the quality and purity of products so important for human health.

14. In case of drug test, will it result positive?

 This is a more difficult question, in fact there are many aspects to consider. Drug tests only analyze THC and not CBD: assuming a product containing only CBD will not give a positive result.

 It should be borne in mind that a small percentage of THC of some products (see for example 0.2% THC of the flowers) could result in a false positive, because of the high sensitivity of modern tests. By consuming products with a minimum percentage of THC, especially in high doses, we cannot be sure of a negative result.

15. Is it safe to use CBD during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

 While there is evidence to advise against the use of THC during pregnancy and breastfeeding, there is not much literature on CBD. Therefore, as a precaution, we recommend avoiding the use of CBD products or discussing about it with your doctor.

16. Is it possible to cook with CBD?

 Cooking with CBD is entirely safe. In fact, using CBD in your recipes can help you to increase the bioavailability of the drug, upping the absorption rate and make you feel the full benefit. Just remember to avoid hight temperatures while you are cooking and store it a dark and cool place.

17. Are our products vegan?

 Yes, all the products of our company are 100% vegan.
