In recent years, there has been a drastic surge in both the hemp and marijuana industry. In the past five years the landscape of these two industry has evolved from operating in the dark to become one of the top emerging industries for the next 10 years. With all the noise that these two industries have been kicking up there is also the spread of misinformation that relates to this industry. In this blog post we will be highlighting three key differences that sets hemp and marijuana apart.
Hemp and Marijuana are the same species but are different plants.
The main difference between these two plants is the chemical composition that they are comprised of. Both of them produce CBD and THC but in different amounts. In order for a Hemp plant to be considered a hemp plant they have to contain less than 0.3% THC , while on the other hand Marijuana plants contains up to 30% THC.

Hemp will not get you HIGH , but Marijuana will!
Hemp CBD plants that contain less than 0.03THC will not give the users the euphoria and the psychoactive sensation of being high. The beauty of CBD is that users will reap the natural benefits from this plant while not receiving the sensation of being high.
