Nature and the environment is at the core of our existence as humans. Everyday, we rely on it to breathe, drink, eat, travel, work and much more. We rely on it to live ! While we have discovered so much about nature in the past century, there is still so much to be learned and harnessed from it. We always believed that the cannabis plant is one of nature’s bounty that has been under researched and underexploited. Whether it is for psychedelic or therapeutic effects, Cannabis Sativa and the cannabinoids it contains seems to have fascinating properties that could offer viable natural solutions or alternatives for several medical conditions and health problems. While research on the topic is progressing at a promising rate, we founded uWeed with a single intention in mind, and that was to make legal quality cannabis products available to all in order to: Unlock health, wellbeing and happiness for everyone by leveraging the bounty of nature.
We believe that actions speak louder than words. That is why we developed a mission statement based on three objectives that reflect our vision to always provide our customers with choice, quality, convenience and service excellence.
Help bring better health, wellbeing and happiness to all European adults by offering a range of quality choices of the right cannabis product for every need.
Alter public opinion and increase understanding of cannabis by continuously informing and educating the public on the real and scientifically proven benefits of the chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant.
Protect our world and the environment by making sustainable decisions alongside our value chain in respect with our love for our nature.
We consider “Happiness” as the true North Star in our lives. Everything we undertake, every decision we make should be aimed at getting us nearer to this feeling. While « happiness » is a state of mind and ultimately lies within oneself, there are a number of factors that might help you get closer or further from it. We identified both physical and mental health as key enablers of a happy life. If you are healthy and feeling well, you are already on the right track. Cannabis compounds likely have properties that might help you with the following three axes:
HEAL – Medical and therapeutic
There is a growing body of preclinical evidence on the benefits of cannabinoids for humans and animals for specific medical conditions. It seems that CBD could notably help patients who want to relieve and heal symptoms of arthritis, depression, epilepsy, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, multiple sclerosis and many more. Consult our CBD application areas section for more information.
ENHANCE – Balance, Performance and Recovery
Cannabis could also benefits customers who want to enhance their performance or improve specific aspects of their lives such as their physical and intellectual performance or overall wellbeing, relaxation and sleep. For instance, athletes around the world have started using CBD to improve their sport performance and recovery.
ENJOY – Recreational and lifestyle
Sometimes, we just want to have fun and enjoy. For these situations, cannabis and CBD can also help and integrate well as part of a healthy, active and modern lifestyle. Whether it is for socializing with friends, listening to the concert of your favorite artist or even spicing up your sex life in the bedroom, you will not be disappointed by what a CBD diet has to offer.
