What’s the difference between CBD products and medical cannabis?

The main difference is that medical cannabis needs to be prescribed by doctors that are specialist prescribers, and CBD products can be bought at shops, online and in pharmacies.

You may have seen CBD products such as:

1. CBD oils, tinctures or extracts
2. CBD gels, creams, balms or rubs
3. CBD capsules that you swallow or vape
4. CBD teas or drinks
5. CBD foods, such as brownies or energy bars

CBD products are manufactured in a different way to medical cannabis, so it can be difficult to tell exactly what they contain. Legally, CBD products should not contain THC and are not allowed to be used to treat medical health conditions.
