Lots of people have heard about Cannabis and Weed, but not as many have heard about Hemp. That’s because help is new to the table and hasn’t had as much limelight as the “hot topic” Cannabis has. While there have been different views brought to light regarding the medicinal, recreational, and health purposes of Marijuana, today we’ll talk about what the differences are between these 3 and hopefully answer a couple questions you might have regarding the usage and practices with these three substances. First off we’ll talk about Hemp.

Hemp is a Cannabis substitute of sorts. CBD flower is a word you’ll see used often in reference to hemp. This flower or “bud” is a type of cannabis that contains less than .3% of THC. THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. Long word. THC simply put is the chemical in Cannabis that is responsible for the intoxicating properties. This chemical is what gives the user the high that so many people crave Marijuana for. However, as many know, the drug and intoxicating properties provided by Marijuana are illegal in most of the 50 states. But if those properties can be regulated and controlled, it would be possible to smoke without getting intoxicated. This is exactly what hemp is. Because the THC levels are less than .3% hemp will not provide the user with a high. It will however, promote focus, act as a mild depressant, and in some cases, cure headaches. You might be asking yourself, is hemp legal? The answer is yes. In 2018 hemp was legalized federally based on it’s containment of less than .3%THC. If the product has more than that amount, it’s considered above the safe usage limit and is a street drug. This is one of the reasons that it’s so important the hemp is manufactured, treated, and tested in secure and professional facilities. If it isn’t done right, it is an illegal product. One of the sites you can visit for more questions on this product is Timbr Organics. And if you have more questions regarding the hemp flower or THC levels Timbr organics is a professional organization and all of their products are treated and tested to ensure legality.

In the end, Cannabis and weed are the same thing. Both of them come from the Marijuana leaf. Cannabis however is the pharmaceutical name for the herb and weed is the street name. However, that doesn’t mean that there are not differences between the two. There are legal ways to obtain Cannabis and it’s clinically proven to help with a manner of different illnesses. However, most of the time, marijuana is used for recreational purposes and is not purchased legally. In that case, most people will reach out looking for “weed” and not cannabis.

I focused this article mainly on hemp because of the light that has already been shown on cannabis and I thought it would benefit you more. If you have further questions regarding it, check out the websites listed above and they’ll be able to answer your questions.
