What is the Difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
In reality, the only difference is the definition. They are both the plant Cannabis Sativa L., Hemp is just defined as “any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent” as defined in the 2018 Farm Bill.
One is not male and the other female, they can both be male or female. One is not like a bamboo and the other a shrub like bush. One does not consist of stock and seed and the other flower. They are the same plant with different legal definitions based on THC percentage. Different strains have different cannabinoid spectrums and some have better yields than others. If you went to a hemp farm today, you would see a bunch of beautiful cannabis plants that are flowering females that look like marijuana but just have been bred to have below .3% THC.
For the purposes of this information we will use the terms Hemp and Cannabis interchangeably.

How Cannabis Works
Our body is pre-programmed to receive the cannabinoids in medical cannabis. Two types of endocannabinoid receptors in our body allow us to absorb the effects of medical cannabis. The first receptor is the cannabinoid receptor type 1, abbreviated as CB1. CB1 is a G protein-coupled cannabinoid receptor primarily located in our central and peripheral nervous system. It is activated by plant cannabinoids, such as the compound THC; and by synthetic analogues of THC, such as dronabinol. CB1 receptors are located in the brain, spinal cord, and periphery. In addition to CB1 we possess CB2 receptors. These are located in the immune tissues. When we consume cannabis high in THC, our body produces molecules (called endocannabinoids) that interact with these CB1 and CB2 receptors to dull our senses and produces euphoria. CBD, another key compound in cannabis, on the other hand, has little affinity for CB1 and CB2 receptors, but of the two, it has a greater affinity for the CB2 receptor than for CB1. In fact, it acts as an indirect antagonist of cannabinoid agonists. Because CBD acts as a receptor agonist, it acts as an antidepressant, anti-anxiety medication, which also has the beneficial side effect of being neuroprotective. Other benefits of high CBD concentrations include its recently discovered anti-psychotic effects, which may in time lead to its use in the treatment of schizophrenia.
