How is CBD different from marijuana?

Commercially available CBD is derived from hemp. While hemp and marijuana are technically the same cannabis sativa plant, hemp contains 0.3% or less of THC, the psychoactive chemical responsible for the “high” in marijuana.

With the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and marijuana are finally treated separately under US Federal law. Specifically, hemp is no longer treated as a Schedule 1 drug, while marijuana remains on that list despite the passage of medicinal and recreational marijuana laws in many states.
