Marijuana Cannabis vs CBD Hemp Cannabis – Which is Which?

THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that will give you a high unless it is in 0.3% amount as it is in hemp. In marijuana, THC is in high percentage even up to 20%. CBD, on the other hand, is all the way up to 20% and more in the hemp flower strains.

Some say that CBD and THC are the to most commonly found cannabinoids in hemp. That is not true when considering amounts. CBD and THC may be the more talked about but not the most commonly found in hemp. CBD and CBG are the most commonly found cannabinoids in the highest amount.

Cannabis contains over 100 different cannabinoid compounds, but only one provokes a significant mind-altering effect. It is often found in the greatest abundance in marijuana.  The cannabinoid THC can be found in concentrations up to 30%.

This may simply be true because the most research has been done on these. But there are others like CBN, CBC, CBL, etc. that are coming into the light as major players in effects and health benefits.

Marijuana Cannabis vs CBD Hemp Cannabis – Talkin’ Science

Cannabis is the scientific name given to a genus of flowering plants within the cannabaceae family. Both cannabis hemp and cannabis marijuana look similar, but they are completely opposite when talking effects like the psychoactive high marijuana provides. In fact, over the last few millennia, scientists have pointed us in multiple directions medicinally and recreationally for marijuana and medicinally, recreationally and fiber like textiles, rope, and paper.

CBD Hemp Flower is a variety of Cannabis sativa L; so it is a dioecious plant and can be separated into male and female plants. Hemp is cannabis and marijuana is cannabis, but their morphology, chemical makeup, and usages are different.

Marijuana Cannabis vs CBD Hemp Cannabis – Considering Terminology

Marijuana has dominated the cannabis family terminology for decades recreationally and medicinally. But it remains illegal on a federal level. Now hemp has taken the spotlight and research has exploded on the horizon for medicinal purposes and recreation as well but without the psychoactive high.

Because of the similarities, the terminology is confusing. Many call marijuana cannabis so that gives the impression that all cannabis is marijuana like with the psychoactive high. Hemp is cannabis as well so this misnomer is confusing.

Those of us in the hemp community know too well that when we are telling others about the benefits of CBD hemp, the response is, “Oh, I know but I cannot take the high I get.” Then we have to go into an explanation that hemp is NOT marijuana even though it is cannabis.

“Which is Which” Last Words

There are so many good things about CBD hemp that it bothers me when people shy away from it because they think it is marijuana. I know my concern when I first saw its connection to cannabis who is generally connected to only marijuana. But I took initiative and did the research and found out the truth. If you want resolution for chronic conditions like pain, anxiety, inflammation insomnia, remember CBD hemp has a proven track record of turning those conditions around and beyond that it is without any type if high. If you are looking at the hemp flower for recreational purposes, I say the same. You can enjoy a smoke, a vape, etc without a psychoactive high.
