Q. Are CBD and THC the same thing?
CBD is just one of many Cannabinoids currently identified in the cannabis plant and is the second most abundant Cannabinoid in cannabis after THC.
In hemp, however, THC is only present in trace amounts, while CBD dominates the plant’s makeup. CBD interacts with our naturally occurring systems, but is non-psychotropic, it doesn’t cause a high.
Q. Is CBD Hemp Oil legal?

Q. How does cannabidiol/CBD oil work?
Some scientists consider the cannabinoids that our bodies produce naturally are no longer supplemented through our food intake. So that’s the reason that so many people find using hemp food supplements helpful to maintain and improve their health. It’s exactly the same as taking a vitamin or mineral supplement which compensates for any deficiency in your diet, or if your body is failing to absorb nutrients properly. But even if you eat a balanced diet you won’t be getting the nutrients that hemp can provide.
To be clear, hemp is cannabis. They are the same plant. However, the cannabis that food supplements are made from is properly called ‘industrial hemp’ and it is restricted to containing less than 0.2% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive cannabinoid that causes the cannabis ‘high’. However, it does contain all the other compounds, in particular cannabidiol (CBD), the other cannabinoid that is increasingly being seen by scientists and doctors as vital for good health.
Some scientists believe that ‘endocannabinoid system deficiency’ can lead to some very serious diseases. This may explain why there has been an upsurge in auto immune conditions and diseases like cancer where the body turns on itself. This includes conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Crohn’s Disease and this is why so much research is taking place on using cannabis and cannabinoids to treat these conditions.
