Although both marijuana and hemp come from the same cannabis plant species, they differ due to CBD’s quantities versus THC contained in it. Both CBD and THC are among the 483 known compounds of the cannabis plant or otherwise named marijuana plant. The main reason why the cannabis plant is famous is due to its high levels of THC content. The cannabis plant has been tested in laboratories and has been found to possess high THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. It usually ranges from slightly above the legal limit of 0.3% to as much as 30%. It is this high level of THC that gives marijuana its name as one of the most intoxicating products in the world.
