What’s the difference?
Both have CBD in them, but there’s a much higher percentage in marijuana.
The hemp used for extraction for CBD products you can find on the market has very low (less than 0.2%) levels of THC compared to marijuana which is the legal limit in the UK.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant, which is also known as marijuana or hemp.
It’s one of the 114 naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis sativa (hemp) plants. It used in products like oils, cosmetics, and edibles which form a large portion of the CBD industry. Unlike its sister compound, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana it will not get you high.
How does CBD work?
The Endocannabinoid System has three main components that we know about: , enzymes, endocannabinoids, and receptors. These are present in the body regardless of whether someone uses CBD or not. Everyone is born with an Endocannabinoid System.
The enzymes in the system break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids then bind with receptors. Medical researchers have uncovered that CBD doesn’t directly attach to the receptor but somehow influences it. Switching on these receptors is what creates the health benefits that people associate with the compound.
