Delta 8 - Where Can I Buy Delta 8 Flower in France?
It is quite a simple process to buy Delta 8 flower in France currently. Your can buy Delta 8 flower, oil, edibles, vapes, cartridges, personal care products, pre-rolls, and many other items in France and other European countries.
The recent great and welcomed news that CBD (cannabidiol) is now legal to sell in France, has made buying Delta 8 for instance, in Paris, lawful.
On 23rd June 2021 the Cour de Cassation deemed that CBD could be legally sold in France. Many other countries have made selling CBD lawful for quite some time, but France has been slow to join them. This is a surprising fact, as France is a world leader when it comes to cannabis consumption.
CBD is derived from the hemp plant. To produce Delta 8 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), it is a matter of converting CBD with acetic acid. It is a simple process, but one that must be a controlled practice in laboratory surroundings by a competent chemist.
In 2018 the American Farm Bill looked at Delta 8 THC. It was realised that Delta 8 THC was mildly psychoactive. However, because Delta 8 is a by-product of CBD, and CBD is derived from hemp, it was seen as lawful. The 2018 Farm Bill stipulates that anything derived from hemp is legal and allowed.
Although there are a plethora of CBD products on the high street, CBD flower is not as common. One of the reasons for this is because it looks very much like Delta 8/9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Only a discerning eye would be able to tell the difference. Although CBD flower and THC flower, whether it be Delta 8 or 9 look very similar, the impact they each deliver is very different. Delta 9 THC is, of course, the familiar robustly psychoactive compound produced from the marijuana plant.
The availability of some of the best Delta 8 flower has become more prevalent in very recent years globally. Many are attracted to the mild psychoactive component it delivers. However, it is virtually unheard of in France. Albeit, with the new CBD legislation from the Cour de Cassation, it's time to watch this space, and see what develops. Although it is a slight grey area in legal terms, technically, Delta 8 THC is legal.
A current search for where to buy Delta 8 flower in France, or any other Delta 8 product for that matter, will bring up numerous reputable suppliers online.
In 2018 CBD (cannabidiol) was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), when is was discovered it could treat epilepsy in childhood. The two rare forms of epilepsy in childhood identified were Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. At the time it was also established that seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis were also able to be treated. All very debilitating conditions, so the discovery that these illnesses could be addressed with a natural compound like CBD was, and still is, ground-breaking.
In the UK, the medical use of cannabis was deemed legal in November 2018. However, there are certain criteria that must be met for an individual to be allowed to receive a medical cannabis prescription. The general consensus of medical cannabis prescriptions is that it is still quite difficult to obtain one.
Here, we should clear up the confusion with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).
THC or Delta 9 as it is also known, is a derivative of the marijuana plant. It has been around for centuries, and has been used in healing processes for many people globally. The use of cannabis as a herbal remedy started around 500BC in Asia. Of course news of this phenomenon spread to Africa, Europe, and much later it made it's way to the Americas.
Cannabis is a fast growing plant, and is sometimes referred to as 'weed'. Although a weed is considered a plant that has not been fully identified for all it's properties. Sounds about right some would say, as much research, development and study has been, and still is being carried out with regard to the humble cannabis plant. Groundbreaking discoveries with regard to the many health benefits CBD and THC can deliver continue.
There are over 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. So much research has been carried out with THC and CBD, that these are the two compounds we are most familiar with.
Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant, although CBD derived from hemp must contain <0.2%, (or <0.3% in some countries), of THC.
EU Regulations and Guidelines stipulate the accepted THC levels, and these must be adhered to in the cultivation and supply of CBD to remain lawful.
It is also necessary for cultivators to periodically laboratory test their produce, to ensure levels of THC remain at the accepted level. When purchasing CBD or now the newcomer Delta 8 flower online, there will usually be some kind of certification supplied with the order. This will give the composition of the flower, and therefore clear up any confusion with the look-alike Delta 9 THC.
However, Delta 9 THC is illegal in most countries, and this is because of the psychoactive effect it imparts.
THC is renowned for the mind-altering state it delivers. The phrase 'stoned' relates to the state of mind after using THC. A popular way to use this cannabinoid is to smoke it. Users of THC often over-use this compound, and doing this can bring difficulty in motivation. It can also affect memory and cognitive function. Medical THC, however, has controlled levels so as to deliver the healing benefits without the 'stoned' effect.
Although much research and development has proven that THC has beneficial health and well-being properties, the mind-altering affects mean it needs to be controlled by legislation to prevent abuse.
CBD on the other hand is a product of the hemp plant. CBD can contain a small amount of THC, and the legal limit is set at <0.2%, or in some countries <0.3% has been accepted, as mentioned earlier.
Delta 8 could be viewed as coming somewhere in between Delta 9 THC and CBD, when thinking about psycho-activity effects.
Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. There are no mind-altering effects from CBD, and it has many health and well-being benefits. People who prefer not to be 'stoned' use CBD.
Of course in recent years there has been a massive boom in the sale of products containing CBD, as well as CBD flower and CBD oil. This has been a direct result of the knowledge people now have of the wonderful healing properties this cannabinoid can give.
