One of the most important things, or the plus The important thing to understand about hemp is that it is not marijuana.
Although they look almost identical and belong to the same plant family, their chemical composition is different – and the main omission from hemp is THC.
Hemp is one of the oldest crops in history, and it has hundreds of applications, ranging from the production of textiles and rope to a source of food and construction material. In fact, it was one of the most valuable crops during the colonization of America, and many new states made it a legal requirement to grow hemp, and fined those who didn’t!
As our society has changed, so has hemp. Over time, it has begun to be selectively bred to accentuate its most desirable traits – primarily its fibrous stem and nutritious seeds. To the connoisseur, hemp is very different from cannabis, much taller, thicker and with less foliage – although the general appearance is the same. Through this selective breeding, THC has been removed from the plant, which now has negligible amounts (less than 0.2%), and is therefore legal.
FARMERS REQUIRED TO GROW HEMP
If we go back a few centuries, people would scoff at the idea that hemp is illegal, and at those who don’t know what it is. But now, with it being banned in many places outside the EU, the uses of hemp have been forgotten.
Hemp is a very versatile and sustainable crop. It’s easy to grow, requires minimal attention, and is highly resistant to pests – reducing the need to use pesticides. It is also capable of conditioning the soil, extracting excess metals and toxins for land reclamation – helping to clean up human waste.
HEMP TAKES METALS OUT OF SOIL
It is impossible to get high with agricultural hemp. Thanks to the diverse uses of hemp, and the rediscovery of its properties, the European hemp industry is flourishing and allowing for the safe and pure production of quality CBD oil – one of its many uses.
