Furthermore, people are hearing mixed stories about it’s potential health benefits, it’s effectiveness, it’s legality, and much more.

One of the biggest confusions out there is the difference between hemp and marijuana. In many ways, the two are very similar but differ in some ways.

Arguably, one of the most notable differences is hemp’s low THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content compared to traditional marijuana.

In this post, we will explore these similarities and differences in more depth.


Main Differences Between Hemp and Weed

Some of the biggest differences between hemp and marijuana are hemp’s low THC content and the general uses for the two plants.

THC is the cannabinoid inside cannabis that gets users “high.” Hemp contains 0.3% THC or less, which isn’t enough to get users “stoned.” 

This has been one reason for CBD’s popularity. The fact that it can potentially offer wellness benefits, without any harmful side effects and not get a user “high” has created a mass appeal.

Traditional marijuana typically contains higher amounts of THC, with it not being uncommon to see some strains contain over 15% THC.

Hemp also has more uses than marijuana. Hemp has been used in many categories outside wellness products, things building structures, clothing fabrics, and the long list goes on.


CBD Stores: Shops that Sell High-Quality Cannabidiol

Whether you buy marijuana or non-intoxicating forms like CBD, you want to make sure you to purchase products that contain reliable lab reports. 

There are companies out there that claim their CBD oils and other CBD products can help with pain and inflammation, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression, and much more.

However, not all companies that claim this can always back it up. This is why reliable lab reports are crucial. They ensure that your CBD products have been properly tested for any harmful chemicals or contaminated that could hurt you.
