What is Hemp?
Hemp is a plant that is a subspecies of Cannabis. Hemp is different than the cannabis varieties that contain psychoactive properties. While both species share similarities, the applications and biological makeup are different.
Cannabis is a naturally occurring flowering plant, that has three different genuses: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis.
Cannabis Indica is grown and harvested for its psychoactive properties. These psychoactive properties are the result of high THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) levels within the plant. THC is the compound that causes the intoxicating feel-good effect.
Hemp is derived from Cannabis Sativa, an entirely different strain of Cannabis. Cannabis Sativa is harvested prior to the formation of any buds or flowers on the plant, as these parts of the plant are THC dominant. Instead, seeds and stems are harvested, which are CBD (Cannabidiol) dominant.
For thousands of years, hemp has been used for its positive properties.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, has numerous health benefits. CBD products are 100% legal in all 50 states.
