Two weeks ago, our chapter Her Campus Broward helped out with our college’s Psychology Club in the Cannabis, Cancer, and Coping Seminar. We had a wonderful turn out, around 60 people attended in which was a huge success! So, in light of the seminar, here is the major differences between hemp vs. marijuana. 

Hemp is both zero, high effect.

Marijuana is major high effect.


High levels of CBD and contains <0.3% THC.

CBD extracted from the stalks and stems.

Hemp plants can grow up to 20 ft. tall in height. 


When it comes to both Hemp and Marijuana, they both are from the cannabis plant species, Cannabis Sativa.



High levels of CBD and contains 10-14% THC.

THC and CBD extracted from flower and buds.

Marijuana plants rarely grow to over 5ft in height. 


What is THC?

Is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s pcyhological effects.

What is CBD?

Is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant.

I'm Miss. Congeniality of Broward College North Campus, Events Coordinator of the Psychology Club at Broward College North Campus, new president of Her Campus Broward, I work for Student Services at Broward College North Campus, and I just like to get involved in many great activities that benefit my personal growth.
Student at Broward College for the past five years, first enrolled on Davie's Central Campus learning Physical Therapy for two years than, transferring to Coconut Creeks North campus for the last three years, now majoring in Early Childhood / Developmental Education. Spent first year with Her campus Broward as Outreach Director, former president of self-entitled campus friendship club, Sammy's Buddy Brigade, member of the Campus Science Club, and a Broward County local student Ambassador with Best Buddies International. Winner of the Sammy's award for most charity work within the community, and now Vice President of Her Campus Broward. I hope to soon be working at Junior Achievement with the elementary and middle school children, in order to have a well rounded experience! The hope is to one day work with and teach children who have special needs such as myself! Biggest belief and philosophy of life is that, no matter what anyone says you can't accomplish in life, I am living proof that anything is possible! Having ADHD, high functioning Autism, and medical conditions such as Scoliosis, helps me to understand special needs children on a level that very few people can! It is this very knowledge that led me to choose Teaching as my chosen profession. Now at age 42, and more than 55% on the way to getting an Associate of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education, I hope to become an Assistant Teacher within the next year or so. We hope that this true life story will inspire others to never give up either, no matter what anybody says, or tells you, that you can't do, the only one who can truly hold you back is "YOU".
