Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation, and application.

It is used in variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in.
These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories.
Overall, hemp is known to have over 25,000 possible applications.

THC vs CBD: What are the chemicals that make hemp and marijuana different?

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”THC vs CBD” _builder_version=”3.16.1″ text_font=”Archivo Narrow||||||||”]

Tetrahydrocannabinol, also called THC, is the chemical responsible marijuana’s psychological effects. An average batch of marijuana contains anywhere from 5-20% THC content. Some premium marijuana can have up to 25-30% THC.

Hemp, on the other hand, is regulated to only contain a max THC level of 0.3%, essentially making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get a “high.”

Rather, hemp contains high cannabidiol (CBD) content that acts as THC’s antagonist, essentially making the minimal amount of THC useless.

CBD was also recently found to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without any psychoactive effects. Thus, it has recently gained popularity as a medical supplement and is now one of the leading applications of hemp in the US.

How Hemp Got Grouped With Marijuana

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”How Hemp got grouped with Marijuana?” _builder_version=”3.16.1″ text_font=”||||||||” text_orientation=”center”]

In the 1970s, President Nixon declared a “War on Drugs” and signed into law the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. This law established a set of banned drugs and created the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). It also unintentionally outlawed one of the world’s oldest domesticated crop, hemp. This not only led to the demise of hemp, but also an increased misconception of the plant.

In the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana was grouped with all types of cannabis and was made illegal to grow in the US. This, unfortunately, classified hemp as a drug even though it doesn’t include any of the chemicals that make marijuana a drug.
