What is CBD?

The female cannabis plant is well known for its psychoactive compound THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) however, there are more than 60 other Cannabinoids present in this plant. One Cannabinoid, known as Cannabidiol, or CBD gets increased attention from the research community around the globe.

Nevertheless we cannot recommend our products for internal use, it is also prohibited to make use thereof in any other way.

 

What is the legal situation in Austria regarding flowers?

For this reason, CBD is eligible to be sold legally in Austria. We sell our CBD-herb as an aromatic product, hence we cannot give any recommendation towards usage, dosage, efficacy and effects. The THC threshold of our products is closely monitored to be under 0,3% and the hemp strains we use are listed EU hemp strains – so they are perfectly legal.
