Hemp vs. Mar­i­juana

Modern Cat - - Health -

Hemp and mar­i­juana are not the same, but they both be­long to the cannabis fam­ily. Hemp pro­duces less than 0.3% of THC, the ac­tive chem­i­cal in mar­i­juana that gets you high. An av­er­age batch of mar­i­juana con­tains any­where from 5–30 per­cent THC con­tent, while hemp is reg­u­lated to only con­tain a max­i­mum THC level of 0.3 per­cent, mak­ing it im­pos­si­ble to feel any psy­choac­tive ef­fect or get a “high.” Most all mar­i­juana is grown in­doors, suck­ing up tons of elec­tric­ity. Hemp grows out­doors: it is so­lar pow­ered, re­quires very lit­tle wa­ter to grow and could help save the planet be­cause it turns CO2 into oxy­gen.
