What is Hemp?
Industrial Hemp is an ancient crop that is made of strong fibres, four to six times stronger than cotton! It is a distinct variety of the plant species "Cannabis Sativa L." and is often confused with marijuana because of the similar leaf shape. Hemp contains virtually no THC (delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana. Marijuana typically contains between 3 and 20% THC, while industrial hemp must contain no more than 0.3% to be legally cultivated in Canada.
