Hemp...What is hemp & how is it different than general cannabis

Hemp, normally referred to as cannabis containing 0.3 percent or less THC content by dry weight. Why 0.3 percent? In 1979, some doctors addressed the fact that it’s difficult to distinguish hemp and cannabis because there’s no actual taxonomical difference between the two. Some lawmakers proposed the 0.3 percent rule as a possible solution, but to some, it’s an arbitrary number. This number was used in the legal definition of hemp, as specified in the Agricultural Act of 2018 and other laws throughout the United States.

Hemp is grown in moderate zones as an annual cultivated from seed and can reach a height of up to 16 feet! Most experts say crops grow best in sandy loam with good drainage and require an average monthly rainfall of at least three inches throughout the growing period. Crops cultivated for fiber are dense plants averaging six to ten feet. The crazy part is that some hemp stalks at that height still show little with almost no branching.

The hemp plant is a stout, aromatic, erect herb. The slim-thick stalks are hollow except at the tip and base. The leaves are formed in a palmate shape, and the flowers are small with a yellow tint. Seed-producing flowers form clusters all over the plant growing on the pistillate, or female, plants. Some Pollen-producing flowers form many-branched clusters on staminate, or male, plants.
