In recent years, CBD (cannabidiol) has become very popular. Several countries have looked into the legislation of this substance that was once considered harmful. In the wake of this, many shops selling and consuming CBD have opened their doors. We take stock of the situation in this article.

The different ways of consuming CBD ?

The CBD market is constantly evolving and is in high demand. CBD's consumption is convincing more and more consumers. This naturally forces producers and sellers to innovate to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding clientele.

  • The oral route : these are essentially tablets, capsules or food infused with CBD.
  • The respiratory route: this includes e-liquid for electronic cigarettes
  • The sublingual route : this includes CBD-based lozenges that the user places under the tongue to optimise the therapeutic effects of CBD.

What about legislation?

In France, as in many other European Union countries, it is possible to buy and consume CBD without being prosecuted. Several variations of CBD have been created: CBD e-liquids, CBD oil, CBD chocolates....

Due to its cannabinoid origin, CBD plays an important role in the nervous and immune systems. In particular, it has relieving properties on individuals suffering from numerous pathologies. Notably Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis or depression in all its forms. A temporary authorisation has therefore been issued to health professionals to use CBD as an alternative treatment.

Recreational use of CBD is now possible thanks to the opening of CBD sales outlets all over the world on the internet or in physical shops. Several CBD products are allowed to be sold and consumed in THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content of less than 0.2%.
