Hemp vs. Marijuana

As hemp, CBD and other hemp-related products become more popular, the views on the deemed problematic marijuana and the culture surrounding it has sparked a bit of controversy whether to embrace the drug or not. As a result, the miseducation of the drug arises creating a misunderstanding among current and potential hemp/CBD users. Therefore, it is immensely important that the differences between hemp and marijuana are made clear.

 

So, let’s learn the basics.

Hemp and marijuana are essentially members of the same plant family (Cannabaceae), genus (Cannabis), and species (sativa) that has many varieties. The cannabis plant is very rich in constituents, the most specific of which are the cannabinoids, CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which are quite unique and have vast pharmacological properties with immense potential in the field of medicine to treat various disorders and ailments and to aid in pain relief.

But, over the last decades, most attention has been focused on THC as it is the psychoactive constituent or compound of the flower and has caused quite a contention in society. However, in recent years, the focus on the other compound, CBD, has increased which is used for healing or medicinal purposes rather than an intoxicated feeling like THC.

Although they are often similar in appearance and even smell, which can lead to misunderstanding with the police, hemp and marijuana have significant differences involving their composition, uses, cultivation methods, and legality.
