Hemp vs. Medical Cannabis: What’s the Difference?


Industrial products that have plant-based compositions have reached more than 50,000 distinctive uses like building insulation, clothing, papers, ropes, and construction materials like cement blocks and molded plastics – made from hemp herds or hemp fibers. These are just some of the natural wonders that processed hemp can provide us since it can also be used in wellness and beauty products along with other hemp-based food items. These are rich in amino acids and protein, making processed hemp good for the body.

Hemp and marijuana both belong to the cannabis plant family. Visually, hemp has wider leaves, while marijuana has narrow leaves. Hemp has extremely low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the component answerable to the psychoactive effects or what is more commonly understood as the “cannabis high”. But since it has high cannabidiol (CBD) levels that counteract with the levels of THC, it makes it impossible for one to get high from hemp use. When processed, it can be made into beauty products, soothing gels, and other essential oils. Marijuana, on the other hand, can contain high amounts of CBD but can also have high levels of THC, that when carefully processed and used responsibly, it can be used in health and medical treatments.

  • Hemp:
    • Contributes greatly to industrial product-making

  • Marijuana:
