What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
We can see where the confusion comes from, especially since both plants are in the Cannabis family and the leaves can look similar. But as our moms like to remind us, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. And these two plants have very different “personalities,” starting with the chemical compounds within each. In a nutshell, hemp typically yields a higher amount of CBD and lower THC, whereas marijuana is much more abundant in THC. Both compounds interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, but they have very different effects.
