Hemp Oil vs. Marijuana: Why You Need to Know the Difference

When thinking about CBD for your pet, you should first understand the difference between marijuana and hemp. First, they both come from the same cannabis sativa plant, however, have different properties and results.

Marijuana – is the buds, leaves, and resin of the cannabis plant and are a high source of a substance called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is what results in a psychoactive effect in humans, or in other terms, getting ‘high.’

Hemp – is the rest of the plant. This part of the plant contains less than 3% of tetrahydrocannabinol but does contain a substance called cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabidiol activated receptor sites in the body’s endocannabinoid system.

CBD hemp oil is not associated with the “high” of marijuana, otherwise known as the THC.
