There are many different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp refers to the non-psychoactive (.1% THC) varieties of Cannabis Sativa. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but are genetically distinct and are further distinguished by use, chemical makeup, and cultivation methods. Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. Its seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals. Hemp fibers and stalks are used in clothing, construction materials, paper, biofuel, plastic composites, and more. The hemp plant requires significantly less water to grow than other crops and can grow naturally without pesticides or chemicals, making it the most environmentally friendly crop.
