Hemp and marijuana are both the same plant, not separate species of plant, as people commonly assume. “Hemp” and “marijuana” are flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family. Although the distinction scientifically is not significant between hemp and marijuana, according to the law there is a distinct difference between something sold as a product of the hemp plant versus something sold as a product of the marijuana plant. The key significance in the legal difference between hemp and marijuana is the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content found in the plant.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC is a well-known cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant. THC is found in both hemp and marijuana, however the amount that is legally allowed in each differs according to the law. THC, the psychoactive substance most associated with “weed,” “mary jane” or “ganja,” as marijuana is commonly referred to recreationally getting “high.”
THC is limited in hemp legally to mean the cannabis plant being used contains 0.3 percent or less of THC by dry weight. The number is an arbitrary number first proposed in 1979 to create a distinction between hemp and cannabis where no scientifically distinct taxonomical difference occurs. Significantly, this definition between hemp and marijuana plants was used in the Agricultural Act of 2018 in the United States of America.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the use and production of hemp, AKA cannabis which contains less than 0.3 percent THC content by dry weight. This made hemp-derived products federally legal depending on state laws.
The U.S. Farm Bill is a piece of legislation that covers most federal government policies related to agriculture in the United States. It is typically renewed every five years. In 2018, congress passed the final version of the Farm Bill. The most notable changes of the 2018 Farm Bill were those involving the cannabis plant.
Hemp, defined in the legislation as the cannabis plant (which includes marijuana). The 2018 Farm Bill allows hemp to be grown and cultivated and grown on a large scale for commercial purposes. It also allows for hemp to be transported across state lines for commercial or other purposes. It does not restrict the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products consistent with the law.
According to the 2018 Farm Bill any cannabinoids, defined as a set of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, derived from hemp are legal if and only if the hemp is produced in a way that is compliant with the Farm Bill, federal regulations, state regulations, and are a licensed grower. Cannabinoids produced outside of these regulations are illegal and considered Schedule I status substances.
Hemp is defined in the 2018 Farm Bill as the cannabis plant. This is the same plant that produces marijuana. The key difference between the two is that hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent of THC. Any cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC is defined as “non-hemp cannabis” or marijuana under federal law. Products containing greater than the federal limit of THC are not covered under the 2018 Farm Bill.
