Yes, cannabidiol is completely legal. In Poland, products containing CBD are allowed for use provided that the concentration of THC does not exceed 0.2% in dry matter. It should be noted that CBD is often confused with prescription-only medical marijuana (containing higher amounts of THC), but is not considered to be psychoactive and is extracted from a different type of cannabis. Products even with a high concentration of CBD can be legally purchased in stationary stores and online, but you should pay attention to whether they have the appropriate quality certificates and whether they come from a reliable source - as in the case of LiRoyal products.
Importantly, for legal reasons, cannabis oils and foods are sold as dietary supplements. The European Union has still not taken an unequivocal position on the issue of smoking dried cannabis - therefore it is sold as an aromatherapy or vaporization product. The mere possession or smoking of dried cannabis is not prohibited in Poland, as long as the THC content does not exceed 0.2% in dry matter. In this case, due to the appearance and smell reminiscent of marijuana, it is worth having a manufacturer's certificate confirming the origin of the product.
Cannabinoids consists of various substances, including CBD, CBG, CBN, CBC or THC - a total of over 100 different compounds, each of which has a beneficial effect on our body. Full spectrum products, as the name suggests, contain a full range of cannabinoids, including THC in a legal concentration not exceeding 0.2% in dry matter (thanks to which they do not have psychoactive properties). In addition, the composition of full spectrum products includes terpenes, flavonoids and natural waxes. By extracting what's best in cannabis, it is possible to obtain the so-called synergy effect, similar to the natural composition of the plant.
In addition to full spectrum products, the sale also includes the so-called broad spectrum products, characterized by the lack of THC in the composition, as well as CBD isolates containing only cannabidiol.
CO2 extraction is one of the methods used to produce an intermediate, which is a pure CBD extract, which in turn produces LiRoyal full spectrum oils. This method is the most universal and modifiable extraction method, which is why it has been successfully used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry for several dozen years.
In the production of LiRoyal oils for extraction, the cleanest method of bio-extraction with food grade carbon dioxide is used. This method makes it possible to obtain active substances from cannabis without losing their properties, leaving the purest possible food product. No chemicals are used in the extraction of CO2, it does not generate pollutants and toxins.
Currently, there is no more efficient method on the market than extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide - its efficiency is up to 95%. It is the most effective method and - what is important - thanks to the high level of biodegradability of production and the absence of harmful substances - it is environmentally friendly.
In the LiRoyal store, the consumer can choose not only the concentration that is appropriate for him, but also CBD and CBG "Gold" and "Dark" oils. At first glance, the main difference between them is the appearance and taste - thanks to greater purification and processing, "Gold" oil is more affordable, without ballast and heavy aftertaste. Physical distillation deprives the product of its acidic CBD compounds while maintaining its health benefits. It is an excellent choice, for example, for allergy sufferers, allergic to certain plant compounds.
Dark oil, on the other hand, is an extract that comes straight from the machine, after the first form of processing - without physical distillation. Some describe its taste as "controversial" or "pungent". It is the most raw oil, containing terpenes, flavonoids and acidic CBD, which makes it more pro-health, closer to the synergy effect.
