What Is Hemp?

A Brief Overview

Not too many people understand the difference between hemp and marijuana and the lack of awareness of what hemp is, is actually due to a lot of negative stigma and tight laws surrounding cannabis, because of this hemp has long been forgotten due to its close biological nature to cannabis.

Even though biologically hemp is classified as cannabis, its properties, chemical make up and uses are very different and actually quite diverse.

So let's dive in..

A variety of Cannabis sativa L, hemp is a dioecious plant, which means it can be separated into male and female plants.

These plants have served a wide variety of purposes for more than 10,000 years: for fiber (from the plant’s stems), protein (from seeds), and oils and smokable portions (from the leaves and flowers). Hemp fibers can be used to make items including paper, clothing, furnishing fabric, rope, and building materials.

Can You smoke Hemp?

The method in which you smoke hemp is determined by you and what you hope to achieve.

You are able to purchase CBD flower and smoke this like you normally would in a joint or bong, this is great if you are looking to lower your intake of regular cannabis and also to get CBD benefits.

Whilst hemp isn’t completely absent of intoxicating compounds, that doesn’t mean it will get you high. sorry.

CBD can be extracted from the flower through smoking it directly or inhaled indirectly using a formulated CBD vape juice. CBD, though psychoactive, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid and won’t produce any form of a euphoric high on its own.

Smoking CBD flower and vape juice can be a great way to increase your CBD intake and can provide a rewarding smoking experience throughout the day.

How Can We Use Hemp?

There are many different uses for hemp and each part of the plant can be used differently.

-CBD oil is extracted from hemp leaves and flowers. The CBD oil extracted from hemp can be used for treating a wide variety of ailments, hence the ever-growing popularity of CBD-focused hemp cultivation.

-Hemp fibers are primarily used for textiles, paper, building materials, and other industrial products.

-Hurds, or shives, are short woody hemp fibers typically found inside the stalk. They’re used for making hempcrete, bedding materials, absorbents, particle board, ceiling panels, compost, and other industrial products.

-Seeds can be consumed whole, or refined by being pressed or crushed to produce hemp seed oil and flour. These seeds are also hulled, or shelled, to make them more palatable. The remaining shells, which are rich in fiber, can also be used for making flour.

Whilst there are plenty of proven uses and benefits surrounding hemp there are also plenty of laws and negative connotations surrounding the cannabis plant which can be traced back to government initiatives in the 20th century if one looks hard enough.

We hope that as we move forward more is done to utilise and more importantly educate the general public on these fantastic plants.
