It’s hemp, not high.
Ah, hemp, the plant most commonly demonized thanks to its sister plant, marijuana. Although, for all-intensive purposes, it may be fairer to refer to the two as distant cousins, twice removed, instead of siblings. While it may be true that both hemp and marijuana derive from the same cannabis plant – they are entirely different when it comes to their uses and effects on the human body.

The Doctor Is In
While hemp is extremely low in THC, it’s high in commercial viable levels of CBD (cannabidiol). As a result, hemp has a reputation for improving health outcomes. Medicines based on CBD may potentially manage symptoms of a number of debilitating conditions, such as anxiety, stress, depression, joint pain, etc.
It’s Hemp, Not High
A common misconception about hemp is that it will get you high. The main reason for this misunderstanding is due to the fact hemp and marijuana both come from the same plant: Cannabis Sativa L. So, you’re probably thinking the same thing we did before we became the highly educated experts we are today; “If it comes from the same plant, won’t it contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinoids)? Aka: The psychoactive drug that gets us high?”
The answer is no, and yes.
This is because very faint, trace amounts (.3%-1.5%) of THC are found in industrial hemp as compared to marijuana, which contains anywhere from 5% to 20% of THC or more.
If It’s From The Same Plant, How Come Marijuana Gets You High But Hemp Doesn’t?
We know, it’s confusing, but maybe it would help if we explained that most THC is formed in resin glands on the buds and flowers of the female cannabis plant, however, industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce buds, and as a result, hemp lacks the primary component that forms the marijuana high.
The Main Difference Is In Its Use
Hemp is most commonly used commercially or industrially by utilizing the cannabis stalk for things like building materials, detergents, papers, foods, textiles, and body care products. Whereas, marijuana, which refers to the medicinal and recreational use of the cannabis plant, is typically associated with smoking/getting high.
Just To Clarify…
Strains of cannabis approved for Industrial Hemp production does NOT contain enough THC to produce psychoactive effects.
