At CBDGUM, we believe there is a CBD product that is right for everyone. Our guide will allow you to find yours and advise your loved ones if necessary.
Why buy CBD?
CBD is one of the 120+ compounds, or cannabinoids, unique to the hemp plant (cannabis sativa L). It is the second most abundant cannabinoid after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, unlike THC, CBD is not a psychotropic drug. It is thanks to the isolation of the CBD molecule that it is possible to benefit from the benefits of the plant while avoiding its narcotic effects. It is neither addictive nor toxic and does not “get high”.
Cannabinoids affect the body’s endocannabinoid system in various ways. This system plays a crucial role in maintaining the various balances of the body. On the scale of the human body, it concerns, for example, weight management, body temperature, blood sugar, heart rate, digestive system, etc.
In this sense, CBD would have the following properties:
- analgesic (pain)
- anxiolytic (anti-anxiety)
American scientific research is advancing rapidly and is now proving that CBD has beneficial effects on health. In addition, the French State and the Ministry of Health have undertaken to start a medical cannabis testing program. On the other hand, it is for the moment prohibited to promote the potential beneficial effects of CBD until the information has not been officially ruled by the State.
There appear to be very few unwanted side effects, and most people tolerate it well. CBD is not abuse or addictive, as long as people don’t mix it with other potentially toxic substances.
CBD is used more and more around the world to help reduce stress and anxiety, manage pain and induce a feeling of well-being, among other things.
Is Buying CBD Legal?
Buying CBD in France is legal however the legislation remains approximate. It allows the purchase of CBD on condition that the CBD product comes from a hemp plant with a THC level of less than 0.2%. So be careful to select a reliable brand working with producers who put in place controls.
What types of CBD products to buy?
Choosing the right product is important because each ingestion method has a different level of effectiveness, therapeutic properties, onset times and durations. Below are the most popular product categories currently available.
CBD oils are by far the most popular products today. Oils trump all other types of CBD products when it comes to dosing accuracy. Indeed, all the oils are delivered with a precise dropper allowing to increase or decrease the doses simply.
Oil is the fastest absorption method. It is absorbed sublingually (under the tongue), which means it works faster than most other forms of CBD products.
When starting out, buying oil can be the right way to go so that you can take it gradually and know your ideal dosage.
Choose the right spectrum
One of the first things you will see about CBD oils is their “spectrum”.
The spectrum actually represents the concentration of cannabinoids present in the extract.
Full spectrum CBD oils contain a wide variety of cannabinoids and terpenes from the original hemp plant. These products are known to offer maximum therapeutic benefits because they contain the widest variety of compounds available and take advantage of the entourage effect: that is, the potency of all the components added together. In addition, they also contain a tiny dose of THC, but this has no psychotropic effects and is normally undetectable since less than 0.2%.
Larege speter oils
CBD isolate oils (isolate) They only contain CBD without THC and other cannabinoids. These are not recommended because they do not take advantage of the entourage effect of the hemp plant. On the other hand, they should be preferred for people sensitive or even intolerant to THC.
To summarize : if you want to benefit from the therapeutic effects of CBD you should favor the purchase of broad or full spectrum oils for their high concentrations of cannabinoids.
In order to guarantee maximum purity and exact dosage in each of our products, SENSINESS uses the best extraction method that currently exists: Supercritical CO₂ CBD Extraction.
The super critical CO² method is considered to be the most scientifically reliable method and is also one of the cleanest extraction techniques. She uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to extract CBD in its purest form. CBD oil extracted this way tastes better, but it is also the more expensive method. The advantage of this technique is that the end product is the purest form of CBD oil, which is very potent and chlorophyll-free.
Our oils are designed on an organic MCT coconut oil base for better absorption (bioavailability) by the body, mixed with a full spectrum CBD distillate and then infused with hemp terpenes. We offer a unique bio-active formulation that delivers delicious taste and efficacy up to 300 times superior to CBD oils currently available on the market.

CBD herbal teas and infusions
Often composed of plants and fruits of all kinds, they are ideal for a first take and regular catches. Lovers of tea or classic herbal tea will appreciate the different flavors and accompaniments available.
CBD infusions are ideal for slow and gentle absorption of cannabidiol by your body. They are delicious, comforting and go very well with other plants.

There are 2 forms of CBD infusions:
– Hemp infusions, which contain all parts of the plant (leaves, stems and sometimes flowers) and therefore naturally rich in CBD.
