Check your hemp knowledge against these quick data points about cannabis.

cannabis1. Hemp and marijuana both come from the plant genus Cannabis L. and the species Cannabis sativa L. But hemp contains minimal amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for the “high.” Cannabis indica is a second species of cannabis, and types of Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica that produce higher levels of THC are cultivated for medical and adult uses. 

2. Hemp is grown for its oil, seeds or fibers. Hemp that contains less than 0.3% of THC has been classified as a commodity crop in the 2018 Farm Bill. This legalizes the commercial production of hemp.

3. As of January 2019, 10 states have legalized marijuana for recreational use in adults 21 years old or older, and 33 states have legalized medical marijuana.

4. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid—simply put, it doesn’t give users a high. CBD products include oils, tinctures and food and are used to treat medical conditions that include pain, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety and seizures.  The products are available online and in retail stores in many states, although their legality is still questioned.

5. In 2018, the FDA approved the first CBD drug Epidiolex, an oral solution aimed to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, two rare forms of epilepsy.
