Marijuana Weed Cannabis Hemp, whatever you call it, you can never learn enough. Each has its own qualities and uses, so let's learn together.
Here are the definitions of Marijuana, Weed, Cannabis, and Hemp according to various sources. Or, if you want to take the entire course and learn the business from the bottom to the top, you can do that beginning now.
In easy-to-understand layman terms, according to the Wikipedia definition of Marijuana, Cannabis, Weed, and Hemp are basically the same thing, still yet different. It depends on the strain, what part of the plant is used, and how it is grown. It has 483 compounds, and the main psychoactive component of cannabis is called Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The other 65 compounds are called cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can be used by smoking, vaporing, as a food ingredient, or as an extract. Learn more about these compounds below.
Cannabis is most frequently used recreationally, but with more education, the world has seen all its medicinal properties as well. Used as a medicine, you want more cannabinoids, cannabinol, (CBD).
Used recreationally, or for its mental and physical effects such as getting a 'high' or feeling changed-stoned, euphoric, etc, you would seek higher Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Cannabidiol is a chemical compound that comes from the Hemp or marijuana plant. It is one of the unique compounds known as cannabinoids (CBD).
There are two ways Cannabinoids are produced.
One is a natural process of the body called Endocannabinoid. This compound interacts with our central nervous system and central regulatory system. It also manages our bodily processes such as mood, sleep, appetite.
The second way to regulate this system is to consume the Phytocannabinoids, by eating, drinking, or vaporizing them.
Although the body can produce enough endocannabinoids, what if you feel it isn't? Phytocannabinoids have been proven to literally kickstart our central regulatory system to possibly help us heal ourselves.

Humans were consuming herbs of the earth since the beginning of time. They were also using hemp to make fabrics, housing, food, and medicine. There are historical records of its uses dating from the 3rd millennium BC. However, the Governments of the world have had legal restrictions on its use and possession since the beginning of the 20th century. We researched this a bit, and have added a great site, Hemp Vs Marijuana, where you can learn so much more.
As you can see in that graph and learned at the site, Hemp is cultivated differently, so it has low to no THC, where some marijuana strains have up to 35% THC.
Hemp is not meant to get you 'high,' but the laws have confused the two, so hemp got a bad name as well. Again, that is slowly changing, and we can support this trend by buying more organic home goods, and apparel made from hemp.
