Marijuana and hemp are both strains of the cannabis plant. The marijuana plant contains high levels of THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Hemp also contains THC, but the levels are negligible so it does not cause a psychoactive high. Additionally, hemp is not categorized as a drug so long as the THC levels are below the .3% limit recently mandated by the Farm Bill Act of 2018. At The Wellest, we undergo an additional patented process that removes all levels of THC. All of our products are 100% THC free!
