Today, February 4th, National Hemp Day is a good day to educate yourself and others on what Hemp actually is. There are some many that hear the word “Hemp” and immediately think “marijuana”
Hemp is a phenotype of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is defined by the THC content. Hemp is grown for industrial uses of its derived products, as well as for various phytochemicals other than THC.
It is one of the fastest-growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber thousands of years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.
Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses. Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. [Wikipedia]
With the capabilities to produce crucial resources such as food, rope, clothing, paper, housing material, and more, hemp has been the catalyst for man’s earliest innovations. [CBD Origin]
