The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana
With how fast the cannabis industry has grown, it is very easy to get lost and confused with everything pertaining to CBD. In today’s blog, we’ll be discussing the difference between hemp and marijuana.
What is Hemp? What is Marijuana?
First off, it is very important to mention that hemp and marijuana originate from the same place which is the cannabis family.
By definition, Hemp is the different types of cannabis that contain less than one percent of THC (0.3% to be exact). The term “hemp” is usually used to describe cannabis that will not intoxicate you. Hemp is considered the strongest natural fiber in the world.
Marijuana on the other hand contains more than 0.3% THC. The term marijuana is the most used term in the cannabis industry but not exactly the best representation. In fact, most people in the industry decide to stay away from the term altogether.
Besides the levels of THC, one of the biggest differences between hemp and marijuana is the legality of the two. Hemp was removed as an illegal substance in 2018. The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 effectively banned marijuana in all states by imposing large taxes on its possession, sale, and transportation. Today, marijuana is legal under medicinal purposes in 33 states. Marijuana is still considered an illegal substance under federal law.
