I know there are sooooo many misconceptions about the two. I hope this blog can clear a little but up for you!
Yes, they are both part of the Cannabis Family but they are both DIFFERENT in many ways.
It is like looking at a lime and a lemon.
While both are from the citrus family, both are very different, correct?
Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its
But these differences didn’t stop our political leaders from getting confused and accidentally grouping ALL Cannabis species as a Schedule I Drug and banning it in 1970 under the Controlled Substances Act. Even after 45 years, the government still seems to have some confusion in distinguishing the two plants. Although legislation is being made, progress has been sllloooowwww.
Hemp and marijuana serve COMPLETELY different purposes.
Marijuana, as it is widely known, is used for medicinal or recreational purposes.
Hemp 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!!!! Hemp is used to make canvas, boat sails, clothes, paper, ship rigs, twine, fish nets and so much more.
Can You Get “High” Off Hemp?
“Your lungs will fail before your brain attains any high from smoking industrial hemp”
Tetrahydrocannabinol, also called THC, is the chemical responsible marijuana’s psychological effects.
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”
.3% is SO minimal that it will NOT show up on a drug test and you will NEVER GET HIGH!
(FYI....My CBD is no THC)
Hemp requires minimal care. Adaptable to grow in most climates.
Marijuana is grown in carefully controlled atmosphere.
Now this is an interesting piece of history.....
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.
Some people would argue that the government and "Big Pharma" are fighting to keep hemp federally illegal because it is HEALING TOO MANY ALIMENTS! There is no money, for them, in a "cure" for deathly diseases.....the money is in keeping us sick, prescription drugs, treatments, etc...
FYI.....CBD is legal in all states it is just not federal recognized as of now.
I hope this information helps you in any way.
