The battle: CBD vs. THC

As the legal use of hemp and other hemp products grows, consumers are becoming more curious about their options. This includes cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), two natural compounds found in plants of the Hemp genus.

"Inhale. Hold it. Exhale. Smile"

CBD can be extracted from hemp or hemp.

Hemp and hemp come from the Hemp sativa plant. Legal hemp must contain 0.3 percent THC or less. CBD is sold in the form of gels, gummies, oils, supplements, extracts, and more.

THC is the main psychoactive compound in hemp that produces the high sensation. It can be consumed by smoking hemp. It’s also available in oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, and more.

Both compounds interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, but they have very different effects.

CBD vs. THC: Legality

In the United States, hemp-related laws are evolving regularly. Technically, CBD is still considered a Schedule I drug under federal law. Hemp has been removed from the Controlled Substances Act, but the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) still classify CBD as a Schedule I drug.

However, 33 states plus Washington, D.C., have passed hemp-related laws, making medical hemp with high levels of THC legal. The hemp may need to be prescribed by a licensed physician. In addition, several states have made recreational use of hemp and THC legal. In states where hemp is legal for recreational or medical purposes, you should be able to buy CBD.

Before you try to buy products with CBD or THC, it’s important to research your state’s laws. If you possess hemp-related products in a state where they’re illegal or don’t have a medical prescription in states where the products are legal for medical treatment, you could face legal penalties.
