hemp is actually cannabis.

no, it's not 'marijuana.'

Maybe you've heard that marijuana is similar (or even identical) to something called hemp. If you've seen hemp shampoo on store shelves or heard that Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United Starts, grew hemp, you have wondered: Wait a second, you're saying I can wash my hair with liquid marijuana? Our third president grew weed? The answer is more complicated than your might think. '

so what is hemp?

"Hemp" is another name for the Cannabis sativa plant and its products. This same species of plant is also called marijuana.  'Hemp' is a term used to classify cannabis that contains less than .3% thc. 

hemp vs. marijuana

While hemp and marijuana are from the same plant, people usually use there terms to talk about two different varieties of the plant. Varieties grown to make hemp rope and other products you see on the shelves (including the varieties Jefferson and others grew during the 1700s) have a whole lot less of the chemical that makes marijuana users feel high. Those varieties are sometimes called “industrial hemp.” Varieties grown for use as a drug have been specifically bred to have lots of THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the chemical that makes users feel high.
