From a scientific standpoint, both hemp and marijuana are the same species - Cannabis sativa.
The difference is in their chemical makeup.
Anything with less than 0.3% THC by dried weight is classified as hemp (non-psychoactive), while anything over this is marijuana (psychoactive).
Hemp is more commonly used for making food (hemp seeds), rope, paper, building materials, natural plastics, and most importantly - herbal supplements such as CBD oil.
Marijuana is used recreationally or for medical purposes because of its psychoactive effects.
At Safer CBD, we only use hemp plants that have been specifically bred for their high CBD content and lack of psychoactive THC.
