What Is Hemp?
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant. These plants have been used for thousands of years for their fiber, proteins, oils, and smokable components. It can be used to make objects such as paper, cosmetics, fabrics, ropes, foods, topicals, and building materials.
Most commonly used for its Cannabidiol, or CBD, effects, Hemp is a great treatment for many ailments. The oils extracted from Hemp can be used in many topical or edible products to help with the easement of these conditions. A common misjudgment of Hemp is that it has an intoxicating effect. This is false. It has significantly less THC than its other Cannabis varieties and therefore will not cause a similar result to those that have higher THC levels. According to Connecticut’s Public Act 19-3, the total legal concentration of THC in Hemp plants cannot exceed 0.3 percent on what is called a ‘dry weight basis’ and we make sure this is true.
