Let’s just start off and say no. I’ll explain why in this article. If you’re here reading this, it’s probably because you’ve either been using Hemp for a while and just realized it has ties to cannabis, have been using cannabis for a while and you’re wondering why you don’t get a high when using hemp, or one of your family friends just found out about hemp, told you it’s weed, and now you’re wondering why it has a different name. Well, if you’re here for any of those reasons or one that might be related, we can sort out some of those concerns for you here.
Firstly, are hemp products related to cannabis and what do they have in common? Yes, they are related to cannabis. The majority of hemp products come from cbd flower which comes from the cannabis bulb. This means that they’re related. Because of this, hemp has many of the qualities and characteristics of cannabis. It can be used as either an accelerant or depressant on the body, either speeding up functions or slowing them down depending on the dosage and application. It also has many of the same applications and usages as cannabis. Some for example are through cigarettes, edibles, and disposable vape pens. Disposables are more commonly known as mods or vape pens. Hemp not only can be ingested using a vape pen, but similarly has a variety of flavors and scents that can be combined, used independently, or in some cases… avoided.
Second, if you’re used to the high that comes from cannabis and you’re not finding it in Hemp, here’s why. Hemp has differing qualities than that of weed or marijuana. Mainly the content and percentage of THC. THC is the chemical in cannabis that promotes the intoxication or high that so many people seek from it. Hemp is required to have less than .3% THC which not only keeps the user from feeling a high, but prevents it altogether. Because of this, Hemp was legalized federally in 2018 and can be sold over the counter in different medications or in bulk online. It also means that Hemp can’t be created in a backyard or recreationally but must be created and treated in a lab. That means that if someone is trying to sell you Hemp that they made themselves, don’t buy it.
If you’re looking at buying some Hemp, some of the best products on the market right now are TIMBR organics hemp products. They’re all professionally treated to ensure a THC level of less than .3% and you can buy them in a variety of different concoctions. They have vaporizers, cigarettes, blunts, or pills. You can also buy the product in bulk if you’re looking to save some money and prepare your hemp in a specific way. Depending on usage or application, different means will bring about different effects; so try out a couple different methods and find out what works best for you.
