Difference between hemp and cannabis
The hemp or cannabis plant is a versatile plant from which you can make many different products. Some of these products are marijuana, weed and hashish. These can contain a considerable amount of THC that makes you stoned or high. Hemp itself, on the other hand, contains too few psychoactive substances to get stoned from. But it can be used to make many other products like: clothing, building materials, cosmetics, food and many more.
Hemp plants have many advantages. The plant does not need pesticides and improves the structure of the soil. In addition, the hemp plant absorbs a large amount of CO2 from the air and may therefore be the plant of the future.
