Hemp vs. Marijuana

Amendment 64, section 16 (d) to the Colorado Constitution defines Industrial hemp as ‘a plant of the genus Cannabis and any part of that plant, whether growing or not, containing a Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of no more than 0.3% on a dry weight basis.’
 
Under Colorado State law any Cannabis with a percentage of THC above 0.3% is considered marijuana.
