Hemp refers to a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for industrial purposes. Unlike its cousin marijuana, hemp contains very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana. Instead, hemp is cultivated for its seeds, fibers, and other derivatives, which can be used in a wide range of products including textiles, paper, biofuels, construction materials, food, and health supplements.

Hemp has been used for thousands of years for its versatile properties. It’s considered an environmentally friendly crop because it requires minimal pesticides, herbicides, and water to grow compared to many other plants.
