Hemp and cannabis are both types of plants that belong to the Cannabis sativa species. However, there are some key differences between the two.
One of the main differences between hemp and cannabis is the level of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the high associated with cannabis use. Hemp plants contain very low levels of THC, typically less than 0.3%, while cannabis plants can contain much higher levels of THC, up to 30% or more.
Another difference between hemp and cannabis is the way they are grown and used. Hemp is typically grown for its fibers, which are used to make a variety of products including textiles, paper, and building materials. Cannabis, on the other hand, is typically grown for its buds, which are used to produce a variety of products including recreational and medical marijuana.
It is worth noting that the legal status of hemp and cannabis can vary widely depending on the location. In some places, hemp is legal to grow and use, while cannabis is not. In other places, both hemp and cannabis are legal to grow and use. It is always a good idea to check the local laws and regulations before growing or using any type of cannabis plant.
