Different Between Hemp And Cannabis.

5 months ago

Marijuana farmer in his weed farm.

For so long now, some confusion have been into Cannabis industries about differentiating between Hemp and Cannabis. This start happening when big men join the movement in mind that they could be getting more money into their pocket and health for the people (I don't know if they care). Which make them gave the grass different names.

Good child will actually have plenty names.

Am I too blunt? If yes, I think that one of the reason this platform was created. In the world now, we keep hearing the word "Industrial Hemp" is legalize but not cannabis. Then, I will want to ask, where is Cannabis? Actually there are somethings that distinguish them. But when talking about these two things and trying to isolate one from the other one, is more like saying Volkswagen Beetle is a car, while Lamborghini is a super-car.

Images from unknown source but edited by me.

Yes, one is more expensive and faster but they both are cars and was created to take someone to their destination.

Currently, we have three varieties of Marijuana. Which are Cannabis-indica, Cannabis-sativa and Cannabis-ruderalis. Hemp is said to fall under Cannabis-sativa while the other useful cannabis fall under Cannabis-indica and Cannabis-ruderalis.

One things is that there is non of those varieties of cannabis that did not contain THC, either lower or higher. Cannabis with lower THC are often used for any kind of industrial purpose. More countries are also legalizing Hemp instead of the whole Cannabis, which means they will check if the THC is higher and if yes, they'll dispose it.
Some countries still don't know/know but pretending, about the fact that Cannabis have so much benefits for them but they refused to look at the right way. Hemp (C-sativa with low THC) is for industrial use while Cannabis (C-indica with high THC) is for medical and recreational use, which to me as a person is still under Marijuana.

In fact, calling HEMP, CANNABIS and MARIJUANA is like calling PrinceOla, Ola and Prince. Mehn! You're still calling the same person only maybe for different reasons because someone who want to beg me for help will not just call me without praising words and want my head to swell up.

Just as Cannabis sound scientific name, marijuana like nick name and so many names given to this awesome plant. Same thing happen in terms of Hemp. Although, Hemp have some special usage which not all variety of cannabis can do. When some materials are added, it can be use for textiles, fuel, foods, plastic, paint and some other things. Those usefulness make a way for the name "Industrial Hemp". But non of those still isolate Hemp from Marijuana since pap water is also pap, either cold or hot, Smoke or cook.

Nice man, there are high Thc versions of Sativa too


Yeah, sativa is a huge part of cannabis for its day time buzz


Thanks for the correction Purple, that's why I brackets "with lower THC". 😀

Scientifically, cannabis is a family in the plant kingdom, hemp is under one of it's species


God bless man. 🙌

Very nicely said my frend. Its true that most countires will allow the usage of Hemp only. Instead of legalizing Cannabis as a whole.


It's an act of stupidness. Legalizing Cassava flakes (garri popular in Nigeria) and called real Cassava illegal can only happen because of brain wave.

So i can definitely say cannabis is a super car. Lol. Nice one buddy
