What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants like hHemp and Cannabis. Unlike the other major cannabinoid THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. The effects of CBD include: alerting at low doses, sedating at high doses, reduces pain, relaxes muscle spasms, potent anti-inflammatory, stops nausea/vomiting, reduces anxiety/depression, counters psychotic thoughts, anti-oxidant, anti-convulsant, neuro-protectant, and anti-tumor effects.

Where does Happease CBD comes from?

In general, CBD is found in Hemp and Cannabis. These are two different varieties that come from the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa L). However, it’s important to note that CBD is typically found in higher concentration in Hemp plants. All of our products come from legal Eu Hemp strains.

What's the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the most extensive network in the body when it comes to the number of receptors involved. These receptors interact with the active components found in cannabis. The elaborate ECS receptor network is based in the brain and spreads throughout the body — from organs (i.e. motor and immune systems) to the skin and even to bones. Its main purpose is to interact uniquely with substances of the cannabinoid type.

How does CBD works?

CBD functions by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors have been found in virtually every cell and tissue type in the human body (hence the seemingly endless array of CBD uses).

Do I need a prescription for CBD?

No, you absolutely don’t need any prescription for taking CBD as the CBD is not an FDA approved pharmaceutical or dietary supplement. You may purchase CBD without a prescription.

Is CBD legal?

In countries where cannabis is legal, any CBD product is as well legal.

What are the benefits of using CBD?

CBD currently has a range of benefits, applications and promising possibilities. Research and Studies are happening in countries such as Canada and Israel.

How much CBD is in Happease products?

Our Vappease Lite contains 30% of CBD which is approximately around 90g per pen and Vappease Classic has 50% which is approx. 250mg per cartridge. You can find out more about our products here.

How does Happease extract CBD from hemp?

Our extracts are obtained from Hemp Futura 75 (THC<0,2) that is grown ethically and sourced responsibly from legally authorized fields in the EU hemp market. The plants we use are refined through CO2 supercritical extraction to create concentrated oil and then distilled to be purified.

Why do you use MCT oil? Why don’t you use VG and PG as other companies?

By using MCT oil from coconuts we provide a safe and smooth vaping experience with none of the side effects. We do not use VG and PG.
Propylene glycol (PG) is a thinning agent used mostly in nicotine e-juices. It breaks down to acetaldehyde and formaldehyde when heated to 230°C. We recommend avoiding any products that list this as an ingredient.
Vegetable glycerin (VG) is another substance that is mostly used in nicotine e-juices. It has several negative side-effects including nausea. Again, avoid it if possible.

What is the difference between Mountain River, Jungle Spirit and Strawberry Field?

The main difference between them is their terpene profile which gives them a different taste and mainly different effects and feelings. More about the effects of each product see here.

Why use vaporizers?

As they almost look like a pen, it is easy to take them with you everywhere you go. No need to wait when you want to use them: they don’t need to heat up. The greatest advantage, however, is that vaporizers generally vaporize the CBD extract stored in the replaceable cartridge rather than combusting it, which prevents them from releasing unhealthy compounds.

What are terpenes? And why do you use them?

Whatever your favourite fruit or flower may be, the terpenes in its scent or taste tell your brain exactly what it is that you’re smelling or tasting. However, the most important thing to remember about terpenes is that, every time terpene molecules come into contact with the lungs, mouth or skin, they affect the way you feel.

The distinct composition of terpenes within a certain plant generates a specific essential oil, specific to a single plant species, such as Lavender, Cannabis or Rose and each varieties have it’s own terpene profile.

There are well over 30,000 identifiable terpenes in nature, produced not only by plants but also by animals and bacteria, for example.
Terpenes are also subject to the entourage effect: when they’re associated with other substances and our own hormones, they stimulate specific neurons in the brain, creating a different sensation for every type of terpene. As terpenes are all about scent and taste, adding them to any product enhances and improves the product’s fragrance and flavour.

With everything you now know about terpenes, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that they are commonly used to mimic a specific plant’s flavour and/or scent in a wide range of cosmetic products, perfumes, and food flavourings.

What kind of test do you perform on your products?

First, we test our products for any unwanted substances (i.e. THC, mycotoxins, microbial contamination, etc.) to ensure they do not make their way to our products. Then after distillation, we run another test, just to be sure the quality of our products remains intact. This further increases the purity of our extracts. Before preparing our final product, we systematically perform a third test to check for contamination by residual solvents and to confirm our extracts have been blended properly. For our final test, we select devices from our already packaged products to check for purity and make sure our vape devices work just right.
