What is cannabis—and is it the same as hemp?
Hemp and marijuana are both part of the Cannabaceae family, therefore, both are considered cannabis.
In the U.S., the term “hemp” is used to describe a cannabis plant that produces no more than 0.3% THC, which is the molecule that causes the euphoric effects associated with medicinal and adult use cannabis.
“Marijuana” is the term used to reference the variety of cannabis that produces more than 0.3% THC. There is a staggering diversity of molecules that plants in this legal category are capable of producing. Among these are the cannabinoids CBD, CBG and CBC, which are valued for their medicinal properties.
In fact, cannabis produces more than 100 unique cannabinoids that mimic compounds produced in the human body. These plant-based cannabinoids can work in place of the endogenous cannabinoids when the body experiences a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system.
THC, the dominant cannabis compound, is just one of several cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD is also a cannabinoid, however it does not lead to intoxication.
The effects a person might experience from a particular cannabis strain are directly tied to the cannabinoids and terpenes—and how they affect your individual endocannabinoid system. This is why people respond differently to each strain, and why defining a particular product as a sativa or indica strain (terms for different types of cannabis plants) is a poor indicator of the effects cannabis will have on your body.
