Perhaps the most frequently asked question in our complaints is do I get high from your products? No, you will not get high or stoned from our products. This is because our products only contain CBD and no THC (the substance that gets you high).

The origin
As mentioned before, both CBD and THC are found in the cannabis sativa plant species. But this plant species can be divided into dozens of types of plants. Hemp and cannabis are the two most popular of these.

The differences between hemp and weed are actually very clear. Hemp contains a large amount of CBD while the THC content is considerably low (<0,3%). Weed is the opposite, the THC content is significantly higher (>0,3%) than the CBD content. Because the threshold for legality in Europe and the US is on average between 0,2%-0,3%, hemp is also legal in many countries and that is the plant from which CBD is extracted.

The differences
To summarize the various effects, here is a list of the various functions of the human body on which the substances have an effect:

• Sleep – Impaired Memory and Coordination
• Immune Response – Increased Appetite
