Frequently asked questions
WHAT'S CBD OIL?
CBD could be considered the brother of the THC.
The body itself also produces cannabinoid, the so-called endocannabinoid system. This system is involved in many physical processes such as regulating your appetite and energy balance, metabolism and sleep. Endocannabinoids also appear to play a role in all kinds of psychological processes.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND THC?
The marijuana plant contains more than 60 substances. The two most important of these are definitely CBD and THC. CBD is the abbreviation of Cannabidiol and THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol.
THC is a psychoactive substance, which means that you get high when you take enough of it. CBD is not and therefore recreational users more often choose THC oil instead of CBD oil.
THC is banned in most countries. Because CBD oil contains less than 0.2% THC, it is legal in most European countries and can be traded and used freely.
IS CBD OIL LEGAL IN BELGIUM AND THE NETHERLANDS?
Yes, CBD oil is 100% legal in the Netherlands.
However, there is some confusion about it at some point and that is for the following reason: CBD is sometimes confused with weed oil. These products resemble each other, but are actually very different and that makes CBD oil legal and weed oil illegal in the Netherlands. Weed oil, which is also called THC oil, contains THC and CBD oil does not. THC is a psychoactive substance that is used recreationally, because it gets you high. This substance is illegal in most countries, which is why THC oil/weed oil is also illegal in these countries.
WHAT DOES CBD?
CBD, unlike THC, is seen as a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. It is often seen as the brother of THC.
WHAT DOES THC?
In the case of weed oil, the THC enters your blood through the mucous membranes and stomach and reaches your brain. By absorbing the THC in your brain you get a high feeling, because the substance is psychoactive. This means that it influences the brain function by acting on the central nervous system.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THC OIL AND CBD OIL?
We understand the confusion between CBD oil and weed oil very well. Fortunately, the difference between these two different products is easy to explain. First of all, it is good that you understand the following:
Hemp oil = CBD oil = legal in the Netherlands
Weed oil = THC oil = illegal in the Netherlands

HET VERSCHIL TUSSEN CBD EN THC
CBD en THC zijn twee stoffen uit de cannabis plant die veel van elkaar verschillen. Waar THC het high gevoel veroorzaakt, doet CBD dat niet. Om deze reden zijn producten met THC illegaal in Nederland en de producten mét CBD legaal.
THC is een psychoactieve stof die in Nederland en in de meeste andere landen niet wordt toegestaan. Met psychoactief willen we zeggen dat deze de hersenfunctie beïnvloedt door op het centraal zenuwstelsel in te werken.
DOES CBD AFFECT DRIVING ABILITY?
From a legal point of view, CBD oil sold in the Netherlands may not contain more than 0.2% THC, i.e. a negligible content. When used normally, CBD has no influence on driving ability and may therefore be used in traffic. There are also oils available with a much higher THC content. For these oils it is NOT allowed to drive in traffic.
IS CBD ADDICTIVE?
There is no mental or physical habituation when using CBD.
