It’s in Paris rue d’Aboukir that a very peculiar herbalist’s store has opened: BlueDreamLab. This store is subtle because of its minimalist décor. Calming green walls and a counter with a clean design set the tone: this CBD coffee shop breaks the rule and the idea we can have of these addresses of a new kind.
You have to know that BlueDreamLab is a story that goes back a long way. For a year now, they’ve specialized in selling CBD cannabis online. This legal variety includes a THC (the psychotropic held in cannabis you can find on the black market) rate lower than 0.2%, the legally authorized limit. This legal cannabis ropes in another molecule, cannabidiol, also known as CBD. The latter is said to allow the user to feel cannabis beneficial effects (relaxation, painkiller, sleeping aid…) without suffering the adverse effects (slowed reaction time, fatigue, demotivation…).
In their physical address, under the glass bells, we discover two varieties of cannabis flowers soberly put on the counter. The Blue Dream including 11% of CBD costs €12.50 per gram. The Charlotte Web, €13.50 the gram, includes 14% of CBD. Very rigorous about the products they sell, they carry out their own tests so that they’re sure the cannabis they sell respects the applicable standards.
By the way, here, it’s out of question to push the user to smoke cannabis. At BlueDreamLab, they rather promote other ways of using this legal weed. So, when you buy heads, a little booklet is supplied so that you can discover how to make an herbal tea based on these flowers. Furthermore, for each item bought, you leave with a short instruction book to understand how to use it or apply it.
This is how, in addition to cannabis flowers, we discover CBD balms which composition is 100% natural. Two scents are available: Calendula Lavender or Arnica Cayenne Peppermint. Devoted to a local application, according to users, they allow to ease some pains such as backaches, or pains related to scars. Food oils are also available with a CBD rate going from 2% to 25% according to bottles.
This subtle way to approach cannabis consumption seems to bear fruit. In the store, clients follow one another and don’t look like each other. From the 50-year-old connoisseur to the intrigued 30-year-old woman, like the team’s idea, the clientele breaks the clichés related to cannabis. Patiently, BlueDreamLab staff takes the time to answer all the questions from curious people without pushing them to buy. Actually, they are transmitting a passion with the will not to influence the visitor: the decision to buy or not products based on CBD cannabis is up to him and him only.
Speaking of buyers, they will get aware that BlueDreamLab benevolence follows them even after they’ve left the CBD sales counter. A small instruction book is put in their purchases, warning minors, pregnant and breastfeeding women as well as drivers. A responsible gesture!
