The term Cannabis refers to a family of flowering plants of which Hemp and Marijuana are the most well-known. In other words, Hemp and Marijuana are both members of the Cannabis Family.
The federal government classifies Hemp as, "The plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis."
Hemp and Marijuana come from the same family of plants, but each has its own unique characteristics. In terms of appearance, Hemp tends to be a taller plant with skinny leaves concentrated towards the top while Marijuana has broader leaves and looks more like a bush.
The most significant difference between the two is their chemical composition. By definition, Hemp contains 0.3% THC or less. It is also notable that Hemp has a naturally high CBD composition. On the other hand, Marijuana is loaded with THC and contains concentrations upwards of 25%.
The intended purpose of each plant also varies. Marijuana is cultivated for medicinal and recreational purposes. Hemp has historically been grown for industrial use, but recently has become the subject of increasing interest regarding its own possible medical benefits.
The human nervous system naturally produces molecules called endocannabinoids, as well as receptors for these molecules called cannabinoid receptors, that play a role in the regulation of many normal cellular processes. It is the interaction between these molecules and the substances produced by Cannabis plants that give them their unique medical and recreational effects.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the most prominent psychoactive constituent found in Cannabis. Usually associated with Marijuana, it is the primary agent responsible for the "high" that users feel when consuming Cannabis.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is one of the substances produced by the flowers of Cannabis plants. Although similar to THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects (“highs”) in humans.
CBD works by interacting with molecules and receptors in the endocannabinoid system. Think of it like a lock and key: the endocannabinoid system is the lock, and each cannabinoid is a unique key. Depending on which “key” (cannabinoid) is being used, the “lock” will be adjusted open or closed. The specific interactions that CBD has with the endocannabinoid system are not yet fully understood and are currently the subject of immense research.
We are not permitted to make any medical claims regarding CBD, but instead encourage you to do your own independent research and investigation about the possible benefits of CBD.
Hemp-derived CBD is allowed federally in all 50 states. The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill, removed CBD from the list of Schedule I controlled substances and removed restrictions around the transportation of Hemp-derived products, so long as they fall within a set of guidelines.
Even though Hemp-derived CBD is federally legal, the 2018 Farm Bill allows states to create their own strict laws or even ban CBD altogether.
