It is impossible to walk around Paris today without coming across shops promoting the benefits of cannabidiol, also known as CBD. If this active ingredient from cannabis has been creating so much buzz lately, it’s because the European Court of Justice has ruled that CBD is legal in France. Since then, this market has continued to develop and has become a fashionable phenomenon.
In cosmetics, parapharmacy, and food, the hemp molecule is playing an increasingly important role. Why is this ? The reason is simple: «I feel much more relaxed, less anxious since I have integrated CBD oil in my routine,» says Emilie P., 25 years old. Indeed, according to studies conducted by scientists, CBD would have, among other things, therapeutic virtues: it calms anxiety, thanks to its soothing properties, reduces stress, and allows better sleep. A fashion effect whose craze could well be due to the health crisis and the anxiety-inducing climate in which it has plunged us. The question of well-being has become paramount and with it, the desire to take care of oneself and to listen to one’s body and mind…. And for many people, this means using CBD first!
As present in the kitchen as in the bathroom
its day cream, in serum, in food supplements, in cookies or even in pizzas… CBD is everywhere. Be careful, however, if you are looking for euphoric sensations by crunching it in your cookies … To be legal, the rate of THC must not exceed 0.2%, thus countering any narcotic or addictive effect. Natural, ecological and harmless to health (CBD is, however, not recommended for pregnant women), and like Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston, we jumped the gun, too?
