Hemp uses and history is long and exhaustive.Industrial Hemp(all Cannabis breeds that are not psychoactive) has a low THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) content of less than 0.3% making it impossible to have a psychoactive effect or”high”.This is considered to be legal. Hemp also has a high cannabinoid (CBD) content that acts as THC’s antagonist, essentially making the minimal amount of THC useless.
Marijuana on the other hand, has a THC content of between 5-35 %, has psychoactive effects and is grown in a controlled environment.
The confusion between industrial hemp and marijuana is based on the visual similarities of widely differentiated varieties of plants. The facts explained above should completely remove all doubts about the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana.
The fiber and seeds of industrial Hemp are incredibly valuable and this is why hemp is often called a “cash crop”.
