A Little About Hemp
Hemp has both medicinal and non-medicinal uses. It produces CBD’s which is a nonpsychoative part of the plant which has many practical medical uses such as treating certain types of arthritis and other ailments pertaining to the lymph nodes. Aside from the medicinal world Hemp also has practical uses within many different industries. These uses range from utilizing its versatile fibers to create an array of materials that can be used for building and construction. Hemp boasts a very high tensile strength which makes it ideal for production of rope, fiberglass and other such materials. Hemp can even be made into bio-diesel for powering engines. Hemp’s production can help reduce the eradication of trees being used for similar building materials even paper! With Hemp’s ability to grow into full maturity at a fraction of what it takes for trees this makes it an ideal replacement and a much better renewable resource. remember it wasn’t too long ago when Popular Mechanics was claiming hemp to be the “Billion Dollar Crop” before it was forced out of production by the 1970 Controlled Substances Act.
There are several key differences between Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa. These include height and stature, internodal length, leaf size and structure, buds size and density, flowering time, odour, smoke and effects. Indica plants tend to grow shorter and bushier than the sativa plants. Indica strains tend to have wide, short leaves with short wide blades, whereas sativa strains have long leaves with thin long blades. The buds of indica strains tend to be wide, dense and bulky, while sativa strains are likely to be long, sausage shaped flowers.
On average, Cannabis indica has higher levels of THC compared to CBD, whereas Cannabis sativa has lower levels of THC to CBD. However, huge variability exists within either species. A 2015 study shows the average THC content of the most popular herbal cannabis products in the Netherlands has decreased slightly since 2005.
