Distinction Between Cannabis, Hemp, Marijuana and CBD

Cannabis

Cannabis is a family of plants with two primary classes: Indica and Sativa.

Canafarma products contain naturally occurring CBD. CBD is a non-psychoactive component (“no high”) of the cannabis plant. CBD actually counters the psychoactive properties of THC.

Hemp

Hemp is only derived from Sativa plants which are cannabis plants that contain almost no THC (<0.3% by law) and high levels of CBD.

Hemp

Marijuana

Marijuana is derived from both Indica and Sativa plants that contain a high (15-40%) levels of THC and generally low levels of CBD.

THC is the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant that is responsible for creating the “getting high” effect of smoking marijuana, in addition to other purported neural effects and numerous medical benefits.

CBD

CBD is a non-psychoactive component (no “high”) of the cannabis plant. CBD actually counters the psychoactive properties of THC.
