Living abroad: Can CBD help with expat stress & anxiety?


There’s been a lot of buzz in recent years around CBD (cannabidiol), one of the most well known cannabinoids derived from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. But did you know that it’s also available in Germany?

VAAY is a Berlin-based company offering CBD products that are completely legal and won’t give you the “high” feeling commonly associated with the cannabis plant.

Moving to a foreign country is stressful

Being an expat in Germany, there’s already enough to worry about - like learning a new language, navigating cultural differences, finding an apartment, and facing bureaucratic hurdles. A jump from one environment to another is an overwhelming thing for just about anyone.

So how can you make the transition smoother? Give VAAY a try. With VAAY’s wide range of products, there’s something for every taste and time of day.

What exactly is CBD, and how long has it been around?

Cannabis has been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years – it’s certainly nothing new. The use of cannabis is said to have started in Asia, where the plant is indigenous. It’s even believed that Queen Victoria may have used it to help ease menstrual cramps.

The CBD that you see available in stores today started gaining more attention particularly with the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body. This discovery was monumental because the ECS communicates with and responds to the cannabinoids found in cannabis.

Since this discovery, interest in CBD and its properties has grown significantly. Research suggests that CBD is anti-inflammatory, relaxing, and can speed up the recovery of intensely worked muscles. Unlike THC, which is found in high concentrations in many strains of medicinal cannabis, CBD is not psychotropic. That means it doesn’t get you high.  

What form does CBD come in, and how do you use it?

CBD comes in a wide variety of forms, and VAAY has a lot more than just your standard CBD oil tinctures. They have oils (flavoured and unflavoured oil-based oral sprays), gummies, vape pens, topical creams, massage oils, and even bath bombs. There's a CBD product to fit perfectly into your everyday life, no matter whether you want to RELAX, RECOVER, or get some well-deserved SLEEP:


The RELAX CBD and hemp products support you in getting into the right state of mind to relax. VAAY CBD Oil comes in the form of a spray. Unlike traditional bottles with pipettes, the spray is a convenient way to measure out your dose. It’s simple: just pump the spray under your tongue and you’re good to go. The best part is that VAAY offers sprays that are both flavoured and unflavoured. If you’d prefer a topical for relaxation, CBD Massage Oil contains jojoba oil and warming ginger essence. In addition, CBD Skin & Massage Oil contains 200mg of natural CBD as a full spectrum hemp extract.


CBD Hemp Vitamin Gummies support your immune system and your nerves with unique hemp vitamin gummies that contain full spectrum hemp extract (750mg) and real liquorice. It’s a delicious and easy way to get your dose of CBD. CBD Vape Pens contain a unique mix of CBD, natural terpenes and coconut-based MCT oil. To get your dose of CBD, just inhale from the vape pen for one second. Last but not least, the VAAY Hemp Products are your perfect match for finding your peaceful sleep and rest.
