Hemp looks a lot like marijuana – that is because both plants are part of the cannabis species. Both hemp and marijuana contain both CBD and THC (along with more than 540 other substances). The main difference between the two plants is the amount of each compound they contain: Marijuana contains more THC, and less CBD - Hemp contains more CBD and less THC. The difference is night and day.
THC (or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound that gets people “high”), is present at very low trace levels (typically less than 0.3%) in hemp, while marijuana is typically 14% THC, with stronger varieties as high as 33% THC. Hemp is a specific variety of Cannabis sativa, a type of cannabis. People have grown hemp for hundreds of years, using it to make rope, clothes, sails, food, and much more. Industrial hemp has an equally long history in the United States – Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the country, grew it himself.
Hemp vs. Marijuana - both cannabis
The 2018 Farm Bill considers Cannabis sativa plants with less than 0.3 percent THC as hemp or industrial hemp. Producers can grow it legally across most of the U.S., subject to strict regulations, and excluding three states. In most cases, manufacturers use the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant to make CBD products.
