Although both plants are from the species cannabis, cannabis sativa (hemp) contains virtually no THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana. Hemp cannot be used as a psychoactive drug because it produces virtually no THC (less than 0.3%), whereas marijuana produces between 5-20% THC. In the United States, Canada, and Europe, the level of THC in hemp is limited to .03% or three-tenths of one percent. Josie Maran’s CBD has been third party tested and verified to be at a non-detectable THC level.
