So what's the difference between cannabis and Hemp plants? The key difference is the level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which gives the psychoactive effects and is contained in high levels in the cannabis plant. The hemp plant contains only traces of THC and is bred for CBD use without the effects of the THC.
You may have seen a lot of publicity about cannabis oil and its use by people suffering with epilepsy. Cannabis Oil has a higher THC content than CBD oil and can only be used when prescribed by a doctor.
