Hemp vs Marijuana
Basically, the main difference between the two is the amount of THC content in each plant. Hemp naturally contains very little THC (less than .3%) while marijuana generally has very high THC content (15-40%). Hence why hemp is legal in all 50 states and marijuana is only legal in less than 10 states but that figure is starting to climb rapidly. Because of this, Hemp is grown primarily for industrial purposes, while Marijuana is grown for recreational and medicinal purposes.
The other main difference between the two is the anatomy of each plant. Marijuana features broad leaves, dense buds and has a short, bushy appearance. Hemp, however, features skinny leaves that are concentrated towards the top of the plant and grows taller and skinnier than Marijuana, with few branches beneath its upper portion.
If you look at both plants side by side you can clearly see the difference between the two since the hemp plant is tall and skinny while the marijuana plant is short and fat basically.

A growing number of people have also started to see the benefits of treating symptoms of anxiety and depression with CBD. The lessening of these common mental and physical symptoms often leads to a better overall quality of life. Definitely beats taking prescription drugs and seeing a shrink every week to find some sort of comfort and relief from these hard to treat problems.
Hair & Skin
Research has shown that cannabis oil can trigger the endocannabinoid system to create smoother, more radiant skin. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can also help with skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. For this reason, it also functions well mixed into hair care products for a healthy scalp.
