What you need to know about hemp

Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) is often confused with marijuana (Cannibis Sativa) and while is it is a close cousin to the marijuana plant, it lacks the TCH (tetrahydrocannabinol) and will not get you high as it contains a THC content of 0.3% or less, compared with the marijuana plants content of 10% or more. Hemp seed is a nutritional powerhouse and is packed with nutrition and healthy essential fats.

Hemp seeds (or sometimes referred to as hemp hearts) is an environmentally friendly crop, due to its hardiness to resist dry conditions and pests. It does not require the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides making it a naturally green crop.
