What is hemp?

       Hemp, also known as industrial hemp, refers to varieties of Cannabis sativa L., that contain less than 0.3% THC. This means, by definition, hemp can't get you high; it's non-psychoactive. Even though hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, they are distinguished by use, chemical makeup, and cultivation methods.

Hemp decortication is the process of physically separating the woody part of the stalk from its inner fibrous core. Once the decortication process is completed, the separated fibers are degummed to soften the fiber and lignin.

hemp leaf

The flowers and the leaves of the hemp plant contain the plant's highest concentration of phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Hemp has both male and female flowers, typically expressed on separate plants. The leaves, like most plants, aide in photosynthesis and are less concentrated in phytocannabinoids and terpenes than the flowers.
