We know how easy it is to get lost in the world of CBD, where we’re constantly inundated by products but know very little about them. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you gain some understanding.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound extracted from cannabis plants, and the main compound found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC within marijuana plants, CBD is not psychoactive, so it does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it.
No, CBD and marijuana come from different plants. They do, however, come from the same species of cannabis plant. There are three recognized species of cannabis plants: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. Both CBD and marijuana are derived from the Cannabis sativa species. While CBD and marijuana both come from the same species of the cannabis plant, they are derived from different species of Cannabis sativa. CBD is derived from hemp, while marijuana is derived from the marijuana species.
CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC to be legal according to Federal Law.
CBD that is extracted from hemp and contains less than 0.3% THC is legal at the federal level with the passage of the Farm Bill in late 2018. Each state also has its own law regarding the legality of CBD and therefore the legality of CBD products can vary from state to state.

Project CBD has published a Cannabis Dosing Guide for patients and health professionals.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation of industrial hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3 percent THC) in the United States and removed various derivatives of hemp, including CBD, from the purview of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Controlled Substances Act. But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) views CBD as a pharmaceutical drug. And because the FDA has already approved CBD as a pharmaceutical (Epidiolex) for treating two forms of pediatric epilepsy, the FDAmaintains that it is illegal to sell hemp-derived CBD as a dietary supplement. The DEA, meanwhile, retains jurisdiction over CBD derived from marijuana (cannabis with more than 0.3 percent THC), which is still prohibited under federal law.
