Hemp vs. Marijuana
Do you know that Marijuana is not the same as Hemp?
The Cannabis plant is an umbrella term that covers both Marijuana and Hemp. Well, both these genotypes of Cannabis are also divided into strains and species that are all unique in their own way, each delivering different effects on the body and mind.
Cannabis strains are mostly hybrid types nowadays due to the facts of transportations of the plant throughout the world and breeding . Think of it as cannabis growing in Pakistan is not the same as a farm growing in the US. Reason? Different growing conditions will give rise to the varied chemical composition, which means two unidentical plants.
Well, as for species, we only have three. These are Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Ruderalis. But what are they? Species come as a conventional way to classify plants worldwide. Mostly, marijuana is referred to Cannabis Indica and Ruderalis, while Cannabis Sativa is in reference to Hemp.
Now to Hemp vs Marijuana. Hemp represents cannabis plants that have THC content equal to or less than 0.3%. On the other hand, Marijuana has more than 0.3% THC. Why the threshold? Hemp is regarded as non-intoxicating. THC is the molecule that causes a high in cannabis plants. However, in hemp, the doses are low enough not to cause the high.

How much is an ounce of your favorite weed strain? Mixing your Cannabis flower with a Hemp flower will save you lots on weed. You see, you need enough weed to fill a joint and even more if you smoke a blunt. Save some of you weed for next time and instead grind some Hemp flower to cut with your joint or blunt.
Getting off cigarettes:
How about taking out the tobacco in your cigarettes and replacing it with Hemp flower for a better cannabinoid dose? People have been found to be able to kick that nasty habit and transition into smoking Hemp flower instead.
