Fact: CBD is both hemp-derived and marijuana-derived.
You’ll often see CBD advertised in two main formats: hemp-derived CBD and marijuana-derived CBD.
Both from the cannabis plant, hemp and marijuana serve different functions and are approached with different legalities.
For the most part, hemp-based CBD is not illegal and can be found in health-food stores and can be purchased online (such as the link in our bio).
These derivatives do not contain any of the THC that could be present in marijuana-derived CBD, and if they do, it’s in extremely small trace amounts that have no effect on the user.
As mentioned above, marijuana-based CBD is also lauded for its interaction with THC and how the CBD effects can be enhanced.

In an age of new cannabis laws and advancing research, the conversation American families are having about weed is changing, fast. Many parents want to educate their kids about the drug, but are uncertain as to how. The subject gets even more complicated for parents that consume CBD and THC products, but are still attempting to educate their children about the risks of using the drug. "I have a nine and 12-year-old and I speak about cannabis regularly," says Ashley Kingsley a cannabis business consultant who uses CBD products and smokes weed recreationally. She smokes a Sativa hybrid featuring a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD (2.5mg apiece) and consumable CBD products—and believes cannabis helps bring the body into homeostasis. "I share with my kids the many uses and medicinal properties the plant offers. I answer their questions with honesty. Cannabis saved my life and I celebrate it every day." Aliza Sherman, who uses CBD products, says some parents are more open than others. “Some parents I know hide their weed use; others are casual and open about it, but the overall attitude toward parents who use cannabis is still quite negative,” Sherman tells Broadly. The mother of three is the co-founder of Ellamenta, a global women’s cannabis wellness network based in Alaska, which legalized recreational cannabis in 2015.
Like many other parents who smoke weed, she has very clear ideas on how she is approaching the subject of cannabis with her kids. “Focusing on the health benefits really changes the conversation,” Sherman says. “Many parents—especially moms—now take cannabis to deal with sleep issues, chronic pain, reproductive health issues, and general de-stressing. I’m a better wife, mother, and human when I’m pain-free and can get a good night’s sleep. CBD helps improve my health and outlook on life, including parenting.”
