CBD is the diminutive of cannabinoid which is a chemical compound of the cannabis plant. We call CBD a hemp plant with less than 1 THC and a high CBD level (over 10). CBD has no psychotropic or negative effects unlike THC.

CBD cannabis flowers can be smoked, infused into tea or incorporated into cooking recipes. Its uses are multiple. It is considered a tobacco substitute but is not necessarily consumed smoke even if it is the use for which it is most reputable. It is the raw product of the unprocessed cannabis plant.
The oil, or dye, of CBD is derived from an ethanol extraction of the plant. It forms a thick and sweet product. We mix it with organic olive oil to dilute it and make it easier to do. It is eaten directly in the mouth by putting drops under the tongue. It is a concentrate highly dosed in CBD equivalent to several grams of cannabis flowers.
The authorisation to market CBD is recent in Switzerland and Europe, and there is no adequate legislation yet.
Switzerland recognizes that CBD can have effects on the human body, however, the molecule has not been sufficiently studied to make therapeutic claims (say that X drops will have such an effect). CBD is therefore not recognized as a medicine, but it cannot be considered a food commodity either, as it produces effects and it is not conceivable that such a product is in the olive oil section of our supermarkets.
Unfortunately, since cannabis was banned from sale until 2017, we do not have an appropriate classification for CBD, so we do not have a suitable jurisdiction or a dedicated warning for cannabis to put on packaging.
Pending more appropriate legislation, Switzerland allows the sale of CBD oil in the form of “chemical” as fragrant oil, a European classification that has been in place since 1997. This recommendation comes from Swiss Medic and we are just implementing it. The prevention text on the back of the oil bottle is imposed and is not our responsibility.
Below is a quote from this document from Swiss Medic which explains how we have the right to sell CBD oil:
“Products marketed as chemicals
The chemical law essentially governs the packaging and labelling of chemicals. In particular, it provides that before chemicals are put on the market, the manufacturer is required to carry out a “stand-alone check” to assess whether they are likely to endanger life, human health or the environment. It must also, in accordance with the provisions of the Chemicals Ordinance (OChim; RS 813.11), classify, package and label substances and preparations for this purpose. Products containing CBD may be legally put on the market in the form of fragrant oils, in accordance with the provisions of the chemical law. If, on the other hand, their presentation or use suggests or suggests that they could fall within the scope of other legal provisions, the suitability of their marketing must be assessed on the basis of these other provisions. Example: a “scented oil” containing CBD is sold in an e-cigarette cartridge: the assessment whether the product can be put on the market is based on the right on foodstuffs/usual objects and not on the law on chemicals (see previous chapter). For practical marketing, marketable cartridges must be labelled and declared in accordance with the provisions of the chemical law.”
This tolerance allows the consumer to buy CBD oil while prohibiting the sale of it as a product with therapeutic effects. That is the compromise we have now. So not only do we have to write down the preventions you’ve read, but we can’t give usage advice on the packaging or on our website. It is up to the consumer to choose how to use it, so we cannot direct the customer to one use or another, but many web pages are dedicated to this use.
