Marijuana and Hemp - What Are the Differences?

Marijuana and hemp seeds are the same thing. However, when most people hear the term hemp they tend to think of the marijuana plant. Marijuanas are a different strain of marijuana. They look more like a shrub, are gray and have small blue flowers. They produce a very small amount of flower but are highly prized marijuana in the world today. The flower has a sort of mellow flavor that many people prefer to smoke than other types of pot.

Difference Between Marijuanas And Hemp

 

Many believe that Marijuanas are created by Indian immigrants that came to this part of the world to escape from conflicts. It has been said that many of these people began growing marijuana in order to get a better life. These people may not have fully thought of the medicinal aspects of marijuana, so they just wanted to grow it for the sheer beauty of it. Marijuanas have also been called the Runners Don't Fall category because many runners actually fall victim to this plant. The truth is that the marijuana plant is very strong, has lots of toxins and can even kill a person by overdose if it is used incorrectly.

 

On the other hand, the marijuana plant contains delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is the substance found in all types of marijuana. Most people think that if something has THC it must be bad but this is not the case. Even though the marijuana plant has a high amount of THC compared to other strains of cannabis, the hemp plant has a very small amount and most likely does not produce any negative side effects for the user.

 

There is an old saying that goes "If you want something done right you do it yourself." If you look at the medical marijuana industry, you will see that there is a large amount of work being done by companies that actually hire people to grow their own marijuana. Most marijuana are easy to grow yourself because they don't require a large area of land. In fact, some marijuana can be grown on the back of your backyard or a small piece of land that does not go through any man made infrastructure.

 

Many individuals have turned to growing marijuana for this reason and because they are interested in trying it out on their own. In addition to being easier than growing marijuana, it is also less expensive to grow. Marijuanas can be purchased for under ten dollars per plant and sometimes for much less. This means that you could easily save a lot of money if you decided that you wanted to try out marijuana instead of hemp.

 

Although many feel that hemp is more safe than marijuana, this may not necessarily be true. When hemp is grown, it can contain any number of contaminants from pesticides to fertilizers to other chemicals that you would not have found in marijuana. If you were growing only marijuana, you would not have to worry about any of these things because it is all natural. However, when you use an indoor system you will have to worry about how you are growing your plants and this can become a concern as well.

 

One of the most obvious differences between the two is the appearance. Marijuanas are generally taller and more compact than hemp. The leaves of marijuana tend to be spiny and have lacy edges while the leaves of hemp are short, slimy, and straight. You also have to consider the fact that the buds of marijuana tend to be larger than those of hemp which will result in the plant being harder to bud. Even so, marijuana is still considered more potent and may be preferred to hemp when used for medical purposes.

 

There are many more differences between marijuana and marijuana. The biggest of these is how quickly the plants grow and how big they grow too. Marijuana can take several years to grow to the point where you can harvest it. On the other hand, many experts believe that marijuana does not grow outdoors at all and is only cultivated indoors. Regardless, of whether you personally believe that marijuana does not grow outdoors you can still enjoy growing marijuana for its beauty and unique nature.
