Scientifically and genetically, Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. Hemp (also called Industrial Hemp) is always a strain of Cannabis Sativa, while Marijuana can be Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, or Cannabis Ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial Hemp has been bred compared to a Marijuana form of Cannabis Sativa. Industrial Hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a Marijuana strain of Cannabis Sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. Marijuana, usually has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of non-psychoactive Cannabinoids such as CBD.
Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD and only a trace amount of THC.
Fortunately, the Cannabinoid profile of Hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from Cannabis without the high.
Hemp is used for making medicinal remedies, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas Marijuana is usually used recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally.
Our extracts are from Hemp plant.  They are sometimes referred to by people as Cannabis oil, as the term Cannabis can technically describe Hemp or Marijuana. In our case, the term Cannabis oil is obviously being used to describe our Hemp oils with a high amount of CBD and a negligible amount of THC (<0,2%).
