The Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana

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.

How to Properly Use CBD Tinctures

A common denominator for most first-time CBD users is how using CBD might have been intimidating or unfamiliar at first. Most modern medicine comes in the form of capsules or cream. While CBD can be used in those ways, many choose to use tinctures. In this post, we’ll help both the amateur and veteran CBD users. 

Consult your Physician 

When dealing with an on-going medical condition, it is always smart to consult with your doctor before taking anything. Even though CBD is considered risk free, you can never be too safe. 

Read the instructions!

We want to leave as little room for error as possible so we labeled all of our tincture products with instructions. Our bottles have recommendations on them so you will never be left in the dark. 

Create a Consistent CBD Schedule

It is recommended that you implement CBD into your daily schedule instead of taking it when needed. For example, instead of only taking the tinctures when you begin to struggle with anxiety, take it beforehand so your body is well prepared to combat the issue. 

Make Sure You’re Using Pure Organic CBD 

All CBD tinctures are not created the same. It is not very hard to find thousands of different tinctures with a simple Google search. However, with the CBD industry becoming so saturated, many of the tinctures include harmful substances. Organic CBD offers consumers the most benefits because it is 100% THC free.
