What Is Hemp?

What is hemp? 

At Hectare’s and Bourbon Country Cannabis, all of our CBD and THC products are hemp-derived. 

Some people are amazed that a hemp product can offer a THC psychoactive experience that is so like a marijuana high. They ask, I thought this could only be gotten from cannabis, not hemp? 

As it turns out, however, hemp indeed is cannabis. 

Hemp Is One Variety of the Cannabis Plant

You may be wondering why a hemp-derived THC product can offer such similar effects as a marijuana product. This is because hemp and marijuana are more similar than you realize. Both are just varieties of one plant, the cannabis plant. 

This is important to understand, because, historically, “cannabis” and “marijuana” have been used interchangeably. In reality, marijuana is cannabis, but only one kind of cannabis. 

The Crucial Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana

So, what makes the two different is the amount of THC that hemp and marijuana contains. Hemp contains less than 0.3% of THC, while marijuana is above that threshold. 

THC is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. This is why marijuana is largely known for getting people high, while hemp is known for a wider variety of effects. For instance, most CBD products are hemp-derived. 

However, hemp-derived THC products can be just as strong as a marijuana product. It all comes down to how the product is created, and how the THC levels can get higher. This explains hemp’s legality, because marijuana is still only legalized on a state-by-state basis.
