The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana

The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana

The different cannabinoids that make up the cannabis plant vary between the hemp and marijuana plant. Marijuana is known for its high levels of THC, roughly 10% where as Hemp only has .3% THC, which is just one of the many beneficial cannabinoids within the plants. THC is the psychoactive ingredient marijuana is known for. Hemp will not get you high, this is a common misconception, there are not enough THC in hemp to have a psychoactive effect.   

THC has become the highly commercialized element of the cannabis plant that makes it classify as a drug. What is not as widely spread is the information about the other cannabinoids and phytonutrients that make the plant so powerful and used for health purposes. There are many cannabinoids such as,

The Most Common Cannabinoids Found in Cannabis
  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
