The Value Of Hemp
Keisha Hill, Gleaner Writer
Hemp is a commonly used term for high-growing varieties of the cannabis plant and its products, which include fibre, oil, and seed. Hemp and marijuana are both varieties or subspecies of theCannabis sativa plant. Marijuana is simply considered to have a higher tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and cannibinoid content. Cannabinoids are a class of chemicals that activate cell membrane receptors, that is the psychoactive element present in the cannabis plant. The most known of these cannabinoids is THC.
All plants in the cannabis genus can produce the oil, but usually only industrial hemp is used to make hemp oil. Industrial hemp is a hemp variant, which has been cultivated specifically for industrial production, and it has a minimum of the psychoactive substances associated with THC. Hemp oil is typically almost free of THC, and it has no psychoactive properties.
