Hemp and marijuana are different

Although hemp and marijuana are members of the same species of Cannabis Sativa there are genetic and practical differences between them, which make them very different from each other.

Hemp is grown outdoors around the world for use as food, oil, or fiber. It becomes high and resistant, also, genetically its levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are almost null. Hemp flowers contain less than 0.3% THC, the active compound that causes psychoactive effects, this is 33 times less than the marijuana strain with lower concentration. Also, the chemical composition of hemp is dominated by the non-psychoactive compound known as cannabidiol (CBD).

Marijuana is usually grown indoors, correctly to produce flowers, which are harvested for recreational purposes. Its flowers can contain high concentrates of THC from 10 to 30%.
