Both industrial hemp (“hemp” for short) and marijuana are bred from the same plant, the Cannabis Sativa plant, but are genetically distinct and differ legally. They also differ in cultivation, chemical properties, and use. Marijuana is cultivated to yield high levels of its psychoactive ingredient, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Hemp is cultivated to produce high levels of its potent, anti-inflammatory ingredient, Cannabidiol (CBD), in addition to other products such as fabrics, paper, rope, foods, and fuels. Hemp does not have any psychoactive properties. When CBD is partnered with THC, the combination becomes the foundation for medical marijuana.
