Hemp and Indian hemp - what's the difference?
To the untrained eye, hemp and cannabis can look almost identical. Both varieties belong to the genus Cannabis, but that's pretty much where the similarities between them end. Hemp plants are definitely taller, they can even reach a height of more than 3 meters. They are also more slender, and their leaves are thin and oblong. In contrast, cannabis plants are more dense, bushy and do not reach such spectacular heights. The most important difference, however, can be seen in the chemical composition of both plants. Both hemp and cannabis produce cannabidiol (CBD), which is a non-intoxicating compound considered safe to consume.
Both types of cannabis also produce tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but at very different levels. THC is a chemical cannabinoid associated with the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Its levels in cannabis can be as high as 30%, depending on the strain. On the other hand, the level of THC in hemp is less than 0.3%, which means that it has no psychoactive effects.
