Often times people are confused on the difference between hemp and cannabis. It is important to know that hemp and cannabis are part of the same species, Cannabis Sativa and each plant contains phytocannabinoids, such as THC and CBD but they are grown for different purposes.
"Marijuanna" and "weed" are terms that have transpired over the years that refer to cannabis.
Cannabis is one of the oldest plants to ever be cultivated by humans. It can be found in almost every culture and civilization, dating back over 10,000BC where archaeological evidence was found in ancient China. The evidence found implicated that hemp was being used for textile, food, rope and other materials. Cannabis was either being juiced or smoked for spiritual, recreational and medicinal uses. References to cannabis can be found throughout the ancient world in religious texts, pottery and clothing.
Religions such as Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, The Old Testament, Hellenistic religion, Paganism and Rastafarianism all make references to cannabis and hemp for their many uses.
Cannabis and its derivatives have been part of our diets and culture for thousands of years. Our bodies were built with receptors for cannabinoids, as as well as producing endogenous cannabinoids called endocannabinoids.
