So, what is the difference between hemp and marijuana? We get this question all the time at 101CBD.org. There are many misleading and uniformed opinions floating around about this subject. It is time to set the record straight.
Both Hemp and Marijuana are Cannabis plants. Marijuana is a Cannabis plant that has more than 5% THC. Hemp is a cannabis plant that has less than .03% THC. It is that simple.
CBD is also an antidote to the effects of THC which means marijuana growers have been eliminating CBD from their plants through breeding for decades to keep their customers as “high” as possible. So if you are looking to get high then Marijuana is the right Cannabis plant for you.
However if you are looking for just the medicine to ease your pain, anxiety, insomnia, mind or body ailment without the “high” feeling, CBD Cannabis plants or Hemp is the way to go.
THC comes from the Marijuana plant, whereas CBD comes from high percentage CBD plants otherwise known as “hemp”.
The most effective form of Cannabidiol (CBD) is Full-Spectrum, which has up to 125 different Cannabinoids.
