What is Legal Weed

Legal Weed , also called legal cannabis, light marijuana, or light hemp, is an inflorescence that comes from the female inflorescences of hemp sativa.

Legal Weed is rich in CBD, the non-psychoactive cannabidiol (unlike THC). The percentage of THC is less than 0.6 percent, which is the limit allowed by Italian law.

The Sativa genetics from which Legal Weed  is derived were obtained by innovative agronomic methods based on careful botanical studies. This made it possible to give rise to varieties depotentiated from the point of view of their effects on the psyche, so much so that they can no longer be considered narcotics. In fact, it is not the Cannabis itself that is banned, but the presence of the psychotropic substance THC.

Today, legal marijuana can be found in various forms in both physical stores and online shops.

This is a big advantage, as it allows us to be able to choose the product that suits us best. Buds are great for those who are used to smoking tobacco and perhaps wish to quit. However, the flowers can also be used to make infusions, or to enrich cakes and cookies. The certainly most popular method of consuming legal Weed is to take it in the form of CBD oil, which is commercially available in various concentrations. Those who use e-cigarettes will probably find CBD e-liquid, which can be used precisely for smoking electronic cigarettes, particularly useful.

The benefits of CBD

Several medical studies have confirmed that CBD has numerous beneficial effects and can be useful in alleviating certain health problems due to its analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory and antidepressant properties. WHO, the World Health Organization, also expressed its positive opinion in November 2017 in a report dealing with the cannabinoid CBD. Cannabis used for therapeutic use is also useful for treating and relieving the symptoms of some diseases such as, for example, epilepsy, inflammation of the intestines, and anxiety states. Below we look at the main properties of cannabidiol:

  • Anti-inflammatory: CBD reduces pain and inflammation by acting on the endocannabinoid system and producing an analgesic effect;
  • Combats insomnia: CBD has relaxing properties and has been shown to be particularly useful for those suffering from sleep disorders;
  • Relieves states of anxiety: CBD helps regulate mood and also acts positively in cases of depression;
  • Combats inflammation of the intestines: CBD has been shown to relieve symptoms of intestinal inflammation, such as Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis;
  • Relieves symptoms of schizophrenia: CBD helps regulate the symptoms of schizophrenia on patients who cannot control the symptoms with medication;

Relieves nausea: CBD has antiemetic properties and can help patients under chemotherapy treatments who experience symptoms of nausea and vomiting.

The Legal Weed market

Italy is the leading country in Europe in terms of cannabis consumption, and this is hardly surprising. The legalization of Legal Weed has also made it possible to please those who want to benefit from the beneficial properties of cannabis sativa without any psychoactive effects. Moreover, with legalization we were faced with two distinct areas: on the one hand the area of Legal Weed , which is completely legal and can be found online and in physical stores, and on the other hand the area of marijuana that is high in THC and sold only on the black market.

Illegal marijuana is grown without permits, without controls, without certifications, and is not subject to taxation. All the opposite of legal cannabis production and trade, which of course have costs to support that go into the final price of the product.

Certainly, Legal Weed is gaining increasing acceptance not only from consumers but also from the scientific community. This could one day lead to the legalization of all cannabis, which would help combat the black market and be a huge revenue stream for countries, also helping them to lift their unstable economic situations .

The average cost

The average cost of commercial Legal Weed  is between €9 and €12 per gram. There are several factors that can influence the final price of products, and among them we find:

  • Own production or purchased from the producer
  • Online store or physical store
  • Purchase format

It is clear that the moment the product is purchased from the producer and therefore from the tertiary sector, it will have a higher cost for the merchant. This will inevitably lead to a higher price for the end customer as well. In addition, the physical store has higher costs to bear than an online shop.

The purchase format is the factor of most concern. Normally if you buy a packaged product sold by weight, it decreases its cost as the quantity increases. This means that buying a larger package will give you a lower price per gram. This is also how it works in the case of the sale of Legal Weed .

Thus, if you buy a 1-gram pack, it will cost you more than if you buy a 10-gram pack.

In addition, the products are certified to ensure their purity, that is, cultivation free of the use of pesticides or harmful chemicals. Hemp is often grown using innovative techniques, such as hydroponics or aeroponics, to ensure product excellence. Therefore, the cultivation method inevitably affects the cost of production.
