What is cannabis oil?
Cannabis oils are made from the flowers of the Swiss hemp plant, using CO2 or ethanol extraction. The cannabis oils available on our site are obtained from cannabis flowers grown without pesticides or herbicides. Some of them are organically grown in order to offer a high quality wellness product. Also sometimes called hemp oils or CBD oils, they always indicate a perfectly legal oil, thanks to an almost zero THC content (less than 1%, even 0.2% in Europe).
These oils with cannabis flowers are mainly produced with a specific variety of hemp, called Cannabis Sativa L. Indeed, its high content in CBD allows to propose products concentrated in Swiss CBD, for better effects and results. Finally, cannabis oils can be full spectrum. That is to say that they contain an extract in which all the cannabinoids of the plant are present, including the THC (<1%). They can also be with broad spectrum, without any notable trace of the molecule of THC.
Before choosing a product, it is important to read our advice and the online reviews on our website.
What are the differences between cannabis oil, hemp oil and CBD oil?
The term hemp oil is used to refer to industrial hemp oil (without CBD or THC) used in cooking. Hemp oil is made from cold-pressed hemp seeds and is therefore rich in essential fatty acids. However, the term CBD hemp oil is sometimes also used to refer to CBD oil.
Cannabis oil is a generic term for all oils made from hemp plants, which may contain CBD and/or THC. But a legal cannabis oil does not contain THC (or less than 1%): these are the items we offer to our customers on our site. However, even legal, these oils remain reserved for adults.
CBD oil is made by extracting cannabinoids from hemp plants (flowers or stems) Sativa. These are also cannabis oils, and they too contain little or no THC. Our Swiss CBD oils all benefit from a unique manufacturing and know-how, for a top-of-the-range product.

How to use cannabis oil?
Oral ingestion is the easiest and most common way to use cannabis oils. You can consume it directly by mouth or sublingually (under the tongue). This method allows a fast abosrbtion by your mucous membranes. Discover the recommended dosages a little further down.
How to dose cannabis oil?
It is important to note that there is no standard dosage yet due to the limited scientific research on the subject. The number of drops will depend mostly on your body type and your habits with legal cannabis.
If you are just starting out with cannabis oils, you can start with a base of 25mg twice a day. That’s about 5 drops from a bottle with a 10% CBD concentration. Then, you can gradually increase the CBD dosage of 25mg every 3 weeks if you don’t feel enough effects.
How to choose a cannabis oil?
To choose the best cannabis oil for you, it’s important to understand the different elements that make up these products.
Types of cannabinoids
Cannabidiol is the most important element to consider when choosing a cannabis oil. Indeed, it is the molecule at the origin of the benefits of these products containing legal cannabis. This molecule is not psychoactive, unlike THC. The CBD does not produce any effect of stoned. According to your need, you will be able to choose the concentration and the content of cannabidiol desired for your oil. The least concentrated oils generally start around 5%, up to almost 50% for the most powerful.
Hemp plants are made up of a large number of cannabinoids. The most known are obviously CBD and THC. But another molecule interests more and more scientists: cannabigerol, also called CBG. Indeed, the CBG would be more powerful than its companions, but also rarer and more complicated to extract.
Cannabigerol is sometimes considered as a “condensed” of the other molecules, or the “mother molecule” of cannabis. It is said that CBG has similar virtues to CBD, or even more important. A CBG oil is thus an ideal product to add to your basket for its effects against the pains, the stress and the anxiety, or to fight against the insomnia.
The molecule of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the psycho active substance, which causes high effects. This is why it is prohibited in Switzerland, France and Europe. Legal cannabis oils must therefore offer a THC content lower than 1%, and around 0.2% or 0.3% maximum elsewhere in Europe. If you want an oil without any THC residue, then you can simply opt for a broad spectrum oil. You can also contact our customer service if you have any questions before buying a cannabis oil.
Type of extract used for the oil
It is important to note that there are two main types of cannabis oils depending on the extract used to make it. Indeed, you will find full spectrum oils (or CBD full spectrum) including all the cannabinoids present in the plant. This includes a very small amount of THC (< 1%). There are also broad spectrum cannabis oils, without any THC molecules.
The raw extract from the hemp plant is then mixed with a carrier oil. This makes it less bitter and more easily consumed. Some producers choose to mix CBD isolates instead.
In order to make it easier to consume, the raw CBD extract must be mixed with a vegetable oil. Indeed, the isolate or the extract will be able to be inserted in oils type MCT (or TCM in French), sunflower or even coconut oil, and to give a product ready to use and to consume.
We have talked about cannabinoids, spectrum, quality, but one last point is just as important to make your choice: the taste and its aromas! Just like the e liquids for electronic cigarettes, there are many flavors for cannabis oils. These give them a good taste for consumption. Many oils are also without added flavoring. So you can choose the products that suit you best.
How much should I pay for cannabis oil?
