What Is The Difference Between CBD, Cannabis, Hemp, Marijuana, And THC?

The growing culture around cannabinoids can be confusing at times. Many people assume that cannabis, Sativa, hemp, and marijuana are all different words for the same thing.

And still, more people believe that CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the same compounds or that they produce the same results. (Also not true.)

Cannabis is a plant. There are two main types of that plant; Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. You can easily buy best quality Langley/Surrey weed online & same day delivery services.

Marijuana is a product of the cannabis plant. While it can be derived from both types, hemp is only derived from the Cannabis Sativa family.

Though hemp and marijuana have a few things in common, there are definitely differences. From a consumer (and legal) standpoint, the most important difference is that hemp contains nearly zero THC. (Remember that legally-grown hemp must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC.)

There are also notable differences between hemp oil vs. CBD oil. While hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, it is very different from CBD oil. Hemp oil is also used quite differently.

Being high in B vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin E, omega-6, omega-3 (fatty acids), and GLA, hemp oil is often used for skin care. That being said, it contains little to no CBD, which makes it completely different from CBD oil despite its list of benefits.

In addition to CBD's medicinal uses, hemp is also a great resource for making environmentally-friendly products such as biofuel, building materials, textiles, and paper.
