Hemp has many uses; its fibers can be used for canvas, paper, rope, and other textiles, it is an incredibly efficient bioremediator (it pulls toxic substances out of the soil while growing), and its hurds are increasingly being used as a construction material and a fiberglass alternative. Hemp seeds have long been used in many cultures for their nutritional benefits to humans and other animals alike. They are now also being explored as a source of biofuel. And the hemp flowers are now wildly popular for the production of CBD-rich oils. The flower portion can also be used as a smokable tobacco alternative.
Many laws have been created based on this percentage based definition of hemp. It’s the level of THC the plant variety produces that differentiates it from cannabis’ intoxicating variety, “marijuana,” and allows for its legal classification as a commodity crop.
“Buy cannabis Kitchener,” or “drug cultivars” are the terms used in reference to the variety of cannabis that produces more than 0.3% THC. There is a staggering diversity of molecules that plants in this legal category are capable of producing. Among these are cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC), cannabinoids which are valued for their medicinal properties.
Cannabis is a plant. People use the dried leaves, seed oil, and other parts of the cannabis plant for recreational and medicinal purposes. It can have a pleasurable effect and may soothe the symptoms of various conditions, such as chronic pain.
Ways of using it include:
- smoking or vaping it
- brewing it as a tea
- consuming it in the form of edibles, such as brownies or candies
- eating it raw
- applying it as a topical treatment
- taking it as capsules or supplements
Some of the ingredients in cannabis are psychoactive (mind-altering), but others are not. The potency and balance of the ingredients vary, depending on how the manufacturer grows and processes the plant.
