CANNABIS VS HEMP VS MARIJUANA
The word Cannabis encompasses the strains of both marijuana and hemp plants.
On this basis, hemp is a cannabis plant with a content of THC below 0,2% (<0,3% for the U.S.). Specifically, it is the “Cannabis Sativa L” plant. Hemp growing is legal almost everywhere across EU (as far as it comes from certified seeds), and so it is in many countries worldwide.
Marijuana plants, for their part, contain much more elevated levels of THC (up to almost 30%).
