What’s the Difference Between CBD, Hemp, and Marijuana?

It’s easy to be confused about the differences between CBD, hemp, and marijuana. Let’s examine these in more detail below.

Hemp and marijuana belong to the same species of plant called¬†Cannabis sativa. However, what sets these two substances apart is their psychoactive component:¬†tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Hemp has 0.3% or less THC, which is not enough THC to give you a “high” that is often associated with marijuana.

Hemp is legal to grow and sell in the United States.

CBD is a cannabinoid that can involve receptors for pain, appetite, depression, anxiety, and more. CBD doesn’t hold a legal or illegal status; some states heavily regulate CBD oil as they do marijuana, while others permit its production and use.

Marijuana contains CBD and more THC than hemp, which gives you the euphoric sensation of the drug. Marijuana remains federally illegal in the United States, but 15 states have legalized its recreational use.
