Yes, hemp and marijuana are indeed two different things when you see them legally. But actually, these are just two more names for cannabis, and a simple difference between these two is the concentration of THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. While hemp has it as low as 0.3% or so, marijuana can have much more than that.

Hemp – Uses, And Advantages Of Smoking It

Hemp has a high concentration of CBD and low THC content, making it suitable for therapeutic uses like dealing with pain, anxiety, and other mental illness or body inflammations. For example, those who have a hard time dealing with injury pain or cannot sleep due to insomnia or go through post-therapy pain like cancer patients are prescribed CBD-rich hemp products to deal with the pain and mental suffering.

Besides that, CBD also helps in increasing appetite, and if the THC content is least, it will not cause any psychoactive effects or the High at all. Hence you can take isolate CBD for adults or kids, or pets for pharmaceutical purposes.

Marijuana Uses And Advantages Of Smoking It

When you use the term marijuana, it means weed or ganja, which can get you high and has strong psychoactive effects on your mind. However, marijuana is also a variant of cannabis only, which means it also acts almost similarly like hemp, but since it has high THC content, it can be considered a stronger alternative to hemp.

So, it can be used for therapeutic reasons like dealing with severe pain if CBD isn’t helping, but one should know that it can make you feel high and have some side-effects like redness or eyes, headache, or dryness, etc. with an increased appetite. So, we would recommend that you choose CBD hemp flower initially and only try marijuana if it doesn’t help
