CBD hemp oil is made with high CBD and low THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD doesn’t offer up the same psychoactive and euphoric effects provided by THC. In fact, while THC is found in high quantities in marijuana and low quantities in hemp, the reverse is true for CBD. The CBD oil is most often extracted from hemp as opposed to the traditional marijuana. Therefore, hemp CBD is legal to buy everywhere around the world.
