The Difference is in the Plants - Hemp vs. Marijuana
In the plant world, the genus Cannabis grows domestically and wild all around the globe. Records indicate the plant has been a part of the human experience dating back farther than 5,000 years. It was found to be extremely versatile early on and domestication began to breed certain traits, which later classified the plant into at least 2 sub-species of the genus Cannabis that we know of today, Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica.
