Hemp has been popping up pretty much everywhere and we’re sure you’re asking yourself the same question as most, “What’s all the buzz around hemp?”
What is Hemp?
Hemp is a fiber rich variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species, typically found in the northern hemisphere. Like its sister strain (marijuana), hemp is naturally high in CBD (cannabidiol content), but hemp has only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects.
Hemp is grown specifically for the industrial commercial use of its derived products. Not only is hemp one of the most versatile plants in the world, because hemp is also one of the fastest growing plants, it’s a highly sustainable crop with a wide variety (literally thousands) of commercial uses. Thanks to passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, it's legal to grow hemp throughout the U.S.
