What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are technically the same plant—cannabis.
The difference between the two is a legal one. Hemp is legally defined as having no more than 0.3% THC, meaning it’s non-intoxicating. Marijuana is legally defined as having more than 0.3% THC, meaning it can be intoxicating.
Hemp was made federally legal with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. Marijuana is federally illegal but was made medically legal for 18+ individuals in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2013 and recreationally legal for 21+ individuals in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 2016.
What’s the difference between THC and CBD?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are two of over 100 cannabinoids, or active chemical compounds, found in the cannabis plant. All cannabinoids are psychoactive, meaning they act on your nervous system, but not all are intoxicating.
THC is intoxicating and the main cannabinoid behind marijuana’s signature high. CBD is not intoxicating. Click here to read more about the differences between THC and CBD.
How does cannabis work in the body?
Cannabis interacts with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). All vertebrates have an ECS. This system is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or metabolic balance, within the body.
When you consume cannabis, its phytocannabinoids (or cannabinoids), like THC and CBD, interact with your ECS in a similar way to your internally-made cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) by either blocking or stimulating ECS receptors. This interaction is how you experience the reported therapeutic effects of the plant.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are volatile compounds found in all plants that are responsible for a plant’s smell and taste. They’re the primary component of a plant’s essential oils, and they’re what give cannabis its recognizable skunky aroma. There are hundreds of terpenes in cannabis and over 20,000 in nature.
