My team has a collective experience of over 40 years creating websites and Search Engine visibility. I created the first business directories (4) around 2008 with basic html programming, covering 4 cities in Florida. In 2014 I build a network with 20 city directories, across US and Canada, sold it few years after.
The Cannabis – Marijuana – Weed industry experiences a rapid growth and expansion over time with every new State permission for Recreational Use.
I reviewed several Directories, who all include countless ads, require view on several pages, and some are not even Mobile friendly to use. Mobile Users are the majority, and IMO it is important to deliver key important details about a business in a easy view design, and contacts active with 1 click “Tap-to-Call”, map view, address, product categories what they offer, all in one view.
Our marketing strategy and knowledge about Search Engine results, will greatly benefit every Dispensary.

While cannabis, aka marijuana, and hemp come from the same species of plant, the distinction is in the cannabinoid profile. Cannabis and hemp also have different commercial and industrial uses. In the following tabs you will learn more about the differences.
The difference between Cannabis, Marijuana and hemp are both technical and basic. Cannabis is the scientifically correct name for all of them. They all come from the Cannabaceae family and have been around for thousands of year. Marijuana, like the terms weed or pot, are “slang names” for the cannabis plant. Hemp is simply a cannabis plant that has a low THC content and is used to create multiple resources and has many industrial uses.
Cannabis is a flowing plant in the Cannabaceae family. Some of the most popular terms for cannabis include: “marijuana”, “weed”, or “pot” and it has a vast number of other slang names.
The term cannabis refers to the plants of the species Cannabis Sativa L. Within the species there are three types of cannabis plant:
- Cannabis Sativa
- Cannabis Indica
- Cannabis Ruderalis
The cannabis plant, however, is best known for the cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica species. Each of the species has different qualities and characteristics and are therefore have different effects and outcomes on individuals. For example, Sativa is known for giving feelings of euphoria and a ‘heady high’ whereas Indica is known for a ‘body high’ that can soothe aches and pains. Because of this Sativa is often chosen in the adult-use (recreational) market whereas Indicas are more often used in the medicinal space.
Cannabis plants have chemicals called cannabinoids which are compounds that interact with your body to give you the high feeling or health benefits. Scientists have found over 110 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The two most well-known chemicals are CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD is often thought to be the medical chemical in cannabis whereas THC is known to be the chemical that gets you high. However, research is showing that THC has certain medicinal properties.
Cannabis has traditionally been consumed by smoking the buds or extracting the THC and turning it into an oil which is then consumed. In more modern times, cannabis is turned into oil, pills and mucosal sprays for medical use. For recreational and wellness purposes it’s consumed in many other forms. Use of the higher THC variety of cannabis provides a sense of euphoria, a high, as well as a delay in motor responses. It is a depressant drug which means that it slows down the activity of the central nervous system and delays messages between sent from the brain to the body. In this sense, it’s similar to alcohol.
Marijuana is a slang word used for the cannabis plant. It generally refers to recreational cannabis.
The term originated from the Mexican Spanish word “marihuana” and eventually was adapted to other languages, landing on the term marijuana. The term is thought to have been popularized in America by opponents of the drug who wanted to stigmatize it. During the period Mexicans, Latinos and black people were marginalized in America. Cannabis, or marijuana, alongside the aforementioned people were blamed for many of America’s issues. While the roots of the popularization of the term are derogatory and racist, the term has become a part of many cultures, many without realizing the origins or historical context of the term.
Hemp is thought to be one of the oldest plants used for textiles and is also one of the fastest growing plants. There is evidence that hemp was used 9000 years ago in ancient Çatalhöyük (Turkey).
Hemp is a ‘strain’ of the cannabis Sativa plant that has different properties from what we think of as cannabis. However, hemp is actually the same plant that produces less of the psychoactive chemical THC. In the USA, ‘industrial hemp’ contains 0.3% or less THC content by dry weight whereas in Australia the minimum standard is 0.35% or less THC. While hemp still has some THC, it’s impossible to smoke enough hemp to get you high.
There are five parts of the plant (the inner fibres (hurd), the outer fibres (bast), stalk, buds and the seeds) that can be used. Today hemp can produce resources such as food, clothing, building materials, rope and even fuel.
In conclusion, cannabis and hemp are the same plant species but have different chemical properties and uses.
According to research by Dr. Ethan Russo, there are over 400 chemical compounds in cannabis which include the three most widely known compounds – cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Cannabinoids are every chemical substance, regardless of structure or origin, that joins the cannabinoid receptors of the body and brain and that have similar effects to those produced by the Cannabis Sativa plant.
The first cannabinoid isolated from cannabis was cannabinol in 1899. Next, in 1963 cannabidiol (CBD) was found. And, in 1964 two scientists isolated delta-9-tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC).
- CBN (cannabinol) is a metabolite of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This means that CBN is produced when THC is activated. CBN has potential immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory activities.
- CBD (cannabidiol) is a nonintoxicating cannabinoid (C21H30O2) found in cannabis. CBD is the second most prevalent cannabinoid in the cannabis plant and is best known for its use as CBD oil.
- THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is a chemical compound found in plants of the cannabis genus and is the psychoactive compound that gives you the feeling of being ‘high’. Prior to this chemical becoming active it is THCa and is non-psychoactive.
So, How Long Does Weed Actually Stay In the Body? Here’s Everything You Need to Know
Plus, find out if drug tests can detect CBD.
by EMILY LAURENCE
Marijuana is currently legal in 37 states making the drug more accessible than ever. Despite its legal status, most employers can still drug test current or potential employees for cannabis use if they want to. (A few states, including New York and Nevada do not allow marijuana drug testing on employees.) For individuals who use marijuana recreationally or for medical purposes, the potential of having to present an employer with a positive drug test can be anxiety-inducing. This is pretty ironic, given that weed is often used to relax!
Individuals who use CBD—which is sourced from marijuana and hemp plants but is not psychoactive the way weed is—may also wonder if a drug test would show up positive for marijuana. When it comes to how long weed and CBD stay in the body, many factors come into play including how it’s consumed and the concentration.
How Long Does Weed Stay In the Body?
“When we are talking about cannabis, the psychoactive chemical everyone is primarily concerned with is THC,” says Dr. Jenna Nikolaides, MD, an assistant professor in the department of emergency medicine at Rush University. She explains that how much THC is absorbed in the body depends on how it’s being used (for example, if it’s being smoked, vaped or consumed through food) and the type of cannabis strain.
“For example, if you are buying it in plant form, different strains have been bred to contain relatively more or less THC,” she says. “If you are buying edibles or vape liquids, these will have different THC amounts within them.”
Dr. Nikolaides says that if someone is smoking weed, THC enters the bloodstream between three and 10 minutes. “Vaping hits your bloodstream similarly fast, but the products, such as hash oils, can have an even higher potency,” she says. As far as edibles, she says it depends on the dose. “The absorption is less predictable. You’ll feel it hit your bloodstream anywhere between one and six hours,” she says.
That explains how long it takes for THC to enter the bloodstream. But how long will it stay in the body? Dr. Robert Hendrickson, M.D., a professor of emergency medicine in the OHSU School of Medicine and medical director of the Oregon Poison Center at OHSU, says that while THC is only present in the body for a few hours, it can still be detected by a drug test for several days or even weeks after. He explains that this is because the THC is metabolized to a chemical called carboxy-THC. This metabolite, Dr. Hendrickson explains, lasts in the body for much longer than THC (which is what makes someone feel high).
“In general, after a single use of cannabis, carboxy-THC will be present in urine over the drug test cut off for a few days. However, if you use cannabis on a regular basis, carboxy-THC may be detectable in urine for several weeks,” he says. Dr. Hendrickson says that the reason why regular weed users have carboxy-THC detectable in their urine for longer than a one-time user is because, over time, the concentration increases which makes it detectable for longer. “There are individual factors as well,” he adds. “There is variability in how individuals metabolize THC and that might affect metabolite detection in urine. Individuals with poor kidney function may have metabolites detectable for longer.”
What About CBD?
Maybe you don’t consume marijuana, but you do use CBD. Will that show up on a drug test? It depends on how often you use CBD. “When we drug test people for cannabis, we are looking for THC and its metabolites. We don’t test for CBD,” Dr. Nikolaides says. She explains that urine drug tests detect THC and carboxy-THC. However, Dr. Hendrickson says that while CBD does not have enough THC to get someone high, a regular user of CBD may accumulate enough THC so that the carboxy-THC metabolite is detectable in their urine.
Dr. Hendrickson explains that this is because hemp (the plant where CBD comes from) has a very small amount of THC. If someone consumes CBD regularly, this amount can accumulate and just might be enough to be detectable by a urine drug test.
Here’s what’s most important to keep in mind: THC from weed doesn’t stay in the body for very long—just a few hours—but its metabolite, carboxy-THC can be detected in the body for several weeks. If someone uses CBD only and not weed, it’s less likely to show up on a drug test but still possible.
