Certainly one of the most frequently asked questions we encounter is what is the difference between hemp and marijuana? This is a subject that is often poorly explained and many people cannot clearly identify the differences; it is normal that they are sometimes confused.

Lately the demand for CBD has been increasing at an exponential rate, making the CBD market grow every day. However, many people link it directly to THC, causing CBD’s somewhat controversial reputation. It is essential to understand the difference between hemp and marijuana.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

The main difference is its chemical composition. Hemp is a strain of cannabis containing less than 0.3% THC, which is the psychoactive compound in cannabis.

Therefore, marijuana is any strain of cannabis that contains more than 0.3% THC. It can come from both cannabis sativa and cannabis indica, as long as its chemical composition is more than 0.3% THC is marijuana. These strains are normally used for their great psychoactive impact.

Hemp strains can only be classified as such if they have less than 0.3% THC because any higher percentage causes them to be considered marijuana. The place where the plant is grown or its shape has no influence, as the difference is based on the chemical profile of the plant and the amount of THC it contains.

For this reason, their lack of psychoactive effect, hemp plants are legal in the USA. In addition, they can provide an array of health benefits. At Joy Organics, we always make sure that our hemp plants contain no more than 0.3% THC, and thus provide you with products that are safe and healthy for you.
