As the legal use of cannabis products increases, many people are becoming more curious about the available options. While some options are for recreational use, others are more focused on herbal remedies. Here, we focus on the latter. All products found at Route 27 Hemp Yard are legal, skillfully farmed, carefully harvested, and lab-tested for quality.
With all the jargon out there, we want to clarify what CBD and hemp is, and how it differs from THC and marijuana.
What is Hemp and How Does it Differ from Marijuana?
Route 27 Hemp Yard grows the hemp plant. Our legal hemp contains 0.3% THC or less. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, which varies in legality state to state. Throughout history, legal industrial hemp has been used in food, biofuel, clothing, health products, and so much more.
Marijuana contains much more THC than hemp does, while hemp has a lot of CBD. And, while CBD can be extracted from either hemp or cannabis, farming industrial hemp on Long Island is a legal and sustainable way to create CBD products.
CBD vs THC: What’s the Difference?
Marijuana will contain 0.3% or more of THC. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. It is the compound in the Cannabis Sativa plant that gives you the high feeling. While THC and CBD have very similar chemical compounds, CBD will not produce the same high.
CBD is found in both Hemp and Marijuana, but has a higher concentration in hemp. Furthermore, CBD has become the most popular component of herbal remedies. This is largely due to its many benefits that people can enjoy without the side effects of marijuana.
While the question of the difference between hemp and marijuana can be complex, we hope that we were able to simply break it down. In even simpler terms: marijuana can get you “high,” while hemp cannot.
Our goal at Route 27 Hemp Yard is to grow the finest strains of hemp, and increasing CBD content while decreasing the THC content. Thanks to the hard work of our farmers, our CBD products sold here on our website are high quality with whopping CBD levels.
