The hemp plant contains over 80 different ingredients, the so-called cannabinoids, as well as about 400 other active substances. The two best known of these cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
CBD is a non-psychoactive substance (known in research for its anti-inflammatory and relaxing effects), while THC is a psychoactive substance (known in research for its intoxicating effects).
Since 2016, the Swiss Federal Law on Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances (BetmG) has made it legal to sell products containing CBDs with a THC content of less than one percent. Accordingly, the market is still very young.
