CBD and hemp are often talked about together, so are they the same thing?

Hemp Hemp is a strain of the ‘cannabis sativa’ plant species.  Although cannabis and industrial hemp both derive from cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Unlike cannabis, hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD).

Reading a CBD Label: How to Find a Quality Product

Maybe you’ve been considering taking cannabidiol (CBD), to see if it eases symptoms of chronic pain, anxiety, or another condition.
