Is Hemp the same as Marijuana?
No. Hemp and marijuana are two types of cannabis that are genetically distinct and differ in both cultivation, chemical properties, and use. Hemp is grown and cultivated for fiber and seed to produce a variety of products including foods, oils, rope, and fabrics. Marijuana is cultivated to yield high levels of the psychoactive ingredient THC, concentrated heavily in the flowers and buds. Marijuana is bred to have THC levels.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the many different compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant.

The second most abundant compound in cannabis, CBD is not intoxicating and has none of the psychoactive properties of marijuana.
