Hemp and Marijuana, What’s the Difference?

May 23, 2017

Marijuana

Marijuana is cultivated for its high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for the “HIGH”. THC originates mostly in the flowers and trichomes of the plant.

HEMP

Hemp has been cultivated worldwide for thousands of years. Hemp has been used for industrial and medical purposes. Hemp makes useful items like clothing, rope, paper, sails, and thousands of other products.

Recent research into other uses for hemp has found comparatively high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating compound, which has shown significant human health benefits in numerous clinical trials.

  1. Why use such a derogatory term? It’s cannabis. Marijuana is a made up term to make people afraid of Mexicans.
