What is the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD (cannabidiol), is a major component of the hemp plant. Hemp is a species of cannabis called Cannabis Sativa L. It is a 'cousin' to marijuana and different in the fact that it contains significantly lower levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) than marijuana. Hemp plants are generally categorised (in the US and EU) as having levels of THC lower than 0.3% (in Switzerland the legal limit of THC in cultivating hemp is up to 1%). Hemp tends to contain higher levels of CBD than marijuana.
