We’ve done our best to create a fully comprehensive FAQ, but if there are still any unanswered questions, we’d love to hear from you and have our experts respond directly. Without further adieu, let’s get started…

What is CBD?

Short for ‘Cannabidiol’, CBD is one of the many organic compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. These compounds interact with a network of receptors linked to the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems, positively affecting the body in a variety of different ways. This includes sleep patterns, pain, immune response, appetite, mood and hormones. 

Does CBD get you ‘high’?

In CBD, there is only a tiny trace of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the compound that gets you high. So although it comes from the same cannabis sativa plant, there is less than 0.3% THC in CBD, so you won’t feel any ‘high’ effects. Simply put, it’s the relaxing part without the high part.

Is CBD Addictive?

No, CBD products are not addictive, unlike alcohol, nicotine and the consumption of THC. This was confirmed by a WHO study in 2017.

Is CBD Legal In Austria?

Yes, CBD products are legal. But there are legal restrictions: CBD products with a THC content of less than 0.3 percent are legal in Austria. In the rest of the EU, the value is 0.2 percent.  According to the Agency for Food Safety (AGES), in Austria our products are not suitable for consumption. The THC content of our CBD products is less than 0.2% and comes from hemp plants that are registered in the EU Variety Catalogue. Therefore, our products can be legally sold in Austria and the rest of the EU.

How do I dose CBD products?

We are not allowed to give information about dosages as well as promises about the effect of the products, even though the numerous benefits of CBD have been proven by studies. We therefore ask for your patience that our products are sometimes vaguely described. 

How do I take CBD oil?

It is taken orally. Drop the oil under the tongue and leave it there for at least 30 seconds, so it can be absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth. After that, the liquid can be swallowed.

How do I take CBD softgel capsules?

They are taken orally. Either swallow the softgel capsules or let them melt on your tongue for better absorption.

I am an athlete, are CBD products on the list of banned substances?

No, CBD (cannabidiol) is explicitly excluded from the prohibited list.

Where is Wellgena’s CBD grown?

Wellgena’s premium CBD is grown and bottled in Switzerland. With a state-of-the-art facility, Wellgena’s CBD-rich flowers are grown in optimum conditions and without pesticides. The water used on the farm is naturally sourced from a local Swiss mountain spring, and this ensures a top-quality final product.

How Is CBD oil made?

Wellgena CBD is carefully extracted using pressurized carbon dioxide (C02) to pull CBD from the cannabis sativa plant. It is a safe and effective method, involving state-of-the-art equipment to freeze the CO2 gas and compress it into a supercritical cold liquid state. CO2 extraction ensures that no residual solvents remain once the process is complete, and this results in the highest quality CBD product. The finished CBD extract is then added to a carrier oil (hemp seed oil), ready for your blissful consumption.
