What is hemp and how is it different from marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant family, but are different in their genetic makeup. Hemp - also known as industrial hemp - is bursting with
helpful cannabinoids such as CBD, but contains only trace amounts of THC (0.3 percent or less.) Hemp is one of the oldest crops ever grown; a scrap of
hemp fabric dated to 8,000 BC has even been found. It’s used to make everything from food to paper and clothing. The U.S. just passed a farm bill that makes growing hemp legal throughout the United States, so hemp is about to explode in popularity as a cash crop in the U.S.
