1. CBD and marijuana are the same things.
The simple answer is no. Derivation of CBD from the marijuana plant is possible, but so is a derivation from the hemp plant. Hemp-derived CBD is the safest option because hemp contains a low percentage of THC. Indeed, hemp-derived CBD has less than 0.3 percent THC.
On the other hand, marijuana-derived CBD can contain a higher THC level because the marijuana plant has a high THC percentage. The question is, why does THC mark a critical difference? You can learn more about that in the next myth-busting point.
2. You can get high from CBD.
CBD derived from hemp has a low THC content and cannot make users experience mind-altering effects associated with marijuana. A CBD product has a lower THC content than marijuana, which can have up to 30 percent THC. When CBD products contain less than 0.3 percent THC, there is no risk of getting high nor a risk of overdosing. Users prefer CBD because a lack of THC means there is no risk of getting paranoid or more anxious.
So when it comes to purchasing CBD products, be sure to check the THC content to ensure it has the percentage you prefer. CBD and marijuana come in similar forms, including edibles, vape liquids, and creams. Some cannabis farmers even sell marijuana seeds in 2020.
