Industrial Hemp

 

Hemp or industrial hemp, typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant species. However, Hemp has a vastly lower level of THC than its cousin Marijuana and is generally used for fiber and Seed Oil. Hemp or industrial hemp is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Hemp is naturally dioecious meaning the male and female flowers are not found on the same plant. Within dioecious varieties there are natural occurrences of monoecious plants that bear flowers of both sexes. Industrial Hemp is unique in its own right with each type displaying unique characteristics. From seed size to oil content there’s a multitude of factors and characteristics that give each unique strain of hemp its own individuality.
