Hemp (Cannabis sativa) is the same species of plant as cannabis. Unlike cannabis, hemp contains very low levels of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Both hemp and cannabis also contain cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), cannabidivarin (CBDV), cannabigerol (CBG), and others. The 2018 Farm Bill established the specific definition of hemp versus cannabis by limiting the THC content of hemp to no more than 0.3%. Hemp seeds contain fats, protein, and other chemicals.
Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds in the hemp plant that interact with the pathways in the body, known as receptors, which in turn affect symptoms like pain, inflammation, stress and nausea. They work by imitating compounds called endocannabinoids that our bodies make on their own.
