The word ‘hemp’ is trending on the market. More and more people have started turning to hemp as an alternative medicine. But do you know what hemp is?
Industrial hemp is a member of the cannabis plant family, but it because the THC level in hemp is very low, it is not consumed as a recreational drug. Hemp is the main cannabis plant used to make CBD products. Hemp consists of a sufficient amount of CBD, but its users have never experienced a ‘high’ as CBD is really low in psychoactive properties.
Unlike CBD, THC is an intoxicating compound and famous for causing the high related to marijuana use. Hemp, as mentioned above, has very little THC. The federal law defines industrial hemp as cannabis plants having less than 0.3% THC. This amount is not even near to get a consumer high.
